Audi S5

  The Audi S5 is the German luxury automaker's factory tuned version of their sleek two door fast back and features distinct bold bodywork, boxed fenders, 19 inch wheels and a 4.2 Liter FSI V8 making 349 HP and 325 lb-ft of torque when it was introduced in 2008. Future S5 luxury sports cars will be powered by a 3.0 Liter supercharged V6 making a more efficient 333 HP, competing head to head with the BMW M3.

Just because a tuning kit doesn’t provide a plethora of modifications or a ton of extra horsepower tucked tightly underneath the hood doesn’t mean that a little special treatment isn’t in order. At least that is what Awe Tuning seems to think as they have just attached a small, but not insignificant detail to the Audi S5 to improve the horsepower just a tad.

The new exhaust system is available in Polished Silver or Diamond Black and consists of adjustable slash cut tips and an X-Pipe for enhanced cylinder scavenging and exhaust tone. This small addition allows for the S5 to get an extra 8hp and 9Nm of torque.

"Our S5 Cabrio Exhaust system is capped off with attractive slash cut tips featuring the AWE Tuning logo. These tips are double walled to ensure a mirror finish even under hard usage. Choose between the classic Polished Silver or the luscious Diamond Black tips to help your car stand out from the pack. Each tip is individually adjustable, so stagger and depth into bumper can be set according to personal taste."

If a small change is what is needed then this kit is definitely the way to go. Personally, we’d prefer to go all out and get the Audi S5 Typhon by SR Auto Group or the one by Sportec , but our wallets may not agree.

When it comes to fine-tuning Audis , there aren’t a lot of aftermarket tuners that can hold a candle to Stasis Engineering. At the recently concluded SEMA event, Stasis was at it again with a slew of Audi Signature Series models making their way to the SEMA showroom floor.

One particular model that was worth our attention was Stasis’ take on the Audi S5 Cabriolet . We’ve always taken a particular liking to the S5 Cabriolet because it offers all the elements that we look for in a car. It’s fast, it’s powerful, it handles remarkably well, and best, of all, it looks pretty darn awesome.

But even if people like us are already fawning over the S5 Cabriolet, some folks apparently are not as convinced, not because they don’t like the car in its standard format, but because they feel that they can maximize every ounce of it even further. That’s where Stasis Engineering comes in. For these guys, a good sports car can always be better if you put the right elements into it.

After the R8 Phantom by SR Auto Group was revealed at the beginning of this month, the same tuner has wasted no time in producing yet another project for Audi . This time, the venture included an Audi S5 called the Typhon and it will be available upon request.

The exterior package for the Audi includes a Leios matte black exterior wrap (you gotta have the matte black, right?), a Reiger front lip, a Reiger roof spoiler, and a Bespoke dry carbon rear diffusor. Add a new set pf 20" wheels painted in the same matte black finish - of course - and this little package is fit to take on the night in a sexy and sultry manner.

Adding on to the performance of the S5 are an H&R coilover system, a new Milltek sport exhaust system, Milltek downpipe, and ECM Tuning. What changes occurred under the hood are still a mystery, but we do expect something to be done considering "Typhon" is the name of the final son of Gaia and the most deadly monster of Greek mythology. Let’s just hope that SR Auto Group doesn’t disappoint! Of course, we are still waiting on the performance upgrades for the R8 Phantom so we won’t be holding our breath in anticipation for these numbers to surface any time soon.

Since this hot little number will only be available upon request, prices won’t be given out unless the interested customer gives the tuner a call.

Here we go; it’s that time again when a German tuner - HS Motorsport to be exact - takes the little plaything that is the Audi S5 Cabrio and transforms it into a better machine. We’ve visited this type of project before with the kits from CarGraphic and MTM where we found that MTM’s tuning kit had a clear advantage over CarGraphic’s package. Now that HS Motorsport has entered the picture, whose kit will come out on top as the best for the open-topped sports car? Let’s delve a little deeper and make that decision.

HS Motorsport is on the same page as was CarGraphic when they skipped over making any exterior modifications to the already exquisite ride. Instead, their focus was aimed at the engine’s output. This focus produced a total of 375hp (up from a total of 333 HP) and 525 NM of torque (up from 440 NM of torque). HS Motorsport also removed the top speed limiter so the S5 will now hit a top speed of 180mph (the standard model was able to hit a top speed of 155 mph).

When we discuss tuning kits provided by Sportec, we are usually talking about Porsche models. However, the British tuner actually tunes many different brands including Mercedes , BMW , Volkswagen , and even Fiat models, among others. Their latest package sees them tweaking the power on the Audi S5 , both coupe quattro and cabriolet.

The package is called the "Stage One" and it uses the Audi’s 3.0-liter supercharged, V6, TFSI powerplant, a free flowing air filter element, and ECU remapping to completely revamp the car’s output. The result of this hard work is an output of 425 HP at 6640 rpm (an increase of 97 HP over the standard model) and a peak torque of 520 Nm at 4250 rpm (up from the standard 440 Nm). And as an impressive little touch, the maximum torque output is available from 2750 to 6250 rpm. With the new amount of power, the S5 makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in to 4.6 seconds, while top speed is limited at 155 mph for safety reasons.

The Sportec Stage One upgrade is priced at £1950.00.

How’s this for awkward?

A customized Audi S5 Coupe popped up on eBay recently with a host of upgrades making it a pretty desirable ride, even at a price of just over $61,000 – it’s $61,465 in case you’re as interested as we are.

Now, in spite of all the tunings this particular S5 Coupe received, what really struck us was what color it came in, or rather what the color description was used to name it.

Porsche Lime Green?”

If that’s not an ode to one of Audi ’s fiercest competitors, I don’t know what is. Apparently, the owner of this S5 personally ordered this paint finish at a price of $2,500 and, while we think that the color isn’t that particularly bad, the lime green exterior/orange interior combination doesn’t catch our eye the way it’s supposed to. And using a paint finish named after a competitor certainly doesn’t cast a vote of confidence from us.

But hey, to each his own, right? After all, colors – and the subsequent names of these colors – notwithstanding, this tuned-up Audi S5 Coupe is still one fine piece of road machinery.

After receiving the modification for the Audi S5 by Senner Tuning a few months ago, the tuning firm has unveiled a new tuning package for the Audi S5 Sportback . The package is called the Grand Prix and includes not only exterior and interior updates, but engine modifications as well.

In its standard version the S5 Sportback is powered by a 3.0 liter V6 engine that delivers 333 hp and a peak torque of 324 lb.-ft. Senner Tuning has managed to obtain more. The tuner added an ECU remap and a high-flow sports air filter, new stainless steel exhaust system with sport catalytic converters, and a four pipe muffler. The result is a maximum output of 375 Hp and a peak torque of 495 Nm. The top speed limiter has also been removed, however, there are no details on the new top speed. Of course, it is safe to say that the top speed will exceed the previous speed of 155mph.

In addition to these modifications Senner Tuning is also offering a lowered suspension, which reduces the front ride height by 40 mm and the rear ride height by 35 mm. The package is finished by 20" two-piece alloy wheels.

The interior received minor changes consisting of some carbon fiber trimmings and some new tachometers.

Pricing for the new Audi S5 Sportback Grand Prix modification kit has yet to be revealed, but we’ll get back to you as soon as it is.

When the heat of summer comes, you can expect a lot of things to happen. People will be coming out of their houses adhering to the time-tested adage "less is more". That’s right, goodbye to those long winter coats, those almost-knee-high boots, and most of all: layers!

And as is the case with summer, tank tops and shorts aren’t the only things people bring out when the sun is bright and shiny. At this time of the year, you can also expect cars to roll around with their tops down. After all, isn’t that the best way to enjoy a nice little ride out to town during the summer?

That being said, ABT Sportsline is gearing up for the season with a new line-up of convertibles that will surely pique the curiosities of those in the market for a new car to flaunt during the summer. And if you’re one of them, you can check out these Audi Abt convertibles - there’s an ABT S3 Cabrio, an ABT S5 Cabrio, and of course, the R8 V10 Spyder - to satiate your convertible appetite because nothing spells out summer more than riding in a top-down convertible with the wind blowing in your face.

German tuner, Cargraphic, has done it again by adding slight modifications to an already quick vehicle in order to make it go a little faster, but purr much louder. The Audi S5 Convertible has a supercharged 3.0 litre TFSI V6 petrol engine producing 330 HP. Cargraphic has decided that this engine does a pretty good job of getting places, but, apparently, not a very good job at sounding like it is supposed to.

The tuning company has added a left-right stainless steel exhaust system with active mufflers and four pipes to make the Audi S5 convertible purr like a tiger getting its belly rubbed. The exhaust, plus some slight modifications to its V6 engine, leads the Audi to a slight jump of 3hp bringing it to 333hp.
The exterior does not show many changes other than the 21” lightweight 3-piece Cargraphic Sport wheels with classic U and Y spokes. Adding to the sporty nature of the Audi S5 Convertible is the Bilstein pure spring kit lowering the car by about 25mm.

The German tuner, Senner Tuning, prepared a new tuning package for the Audi S5 coupe. Their package upgrades both the car’s performance and aerodynamics.

The aerodynamic package includes: a front spoiler with a large air inlet in RS5 Look and a well-suited radiator grill, a rear spoiler lip, a rear apron unit and modern LED back lights.

To improve the car’s performance, the tuner added a performance air filter plug-in package and exhaust system. As a result, the maximum output was raised to 384 hp and 475 Nm. Senner Tuning has also used a Power Converter, an electronic module of acceleration of the signal from the gas pedal, to boost top speed to 177mph.

The cost for the entire tuning package is $25,445.00 US.
