2011 Audi RS5 by Senner

A standardAudi RS5 is powered by a turbocharged V8 engine with a total output of 450 HP at 8250 rpm and 317 lb-ft of torque between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. That’s quite impressive for a luxury sports coupe, but apparently not impressive enough for German tuner, Senner, who believed that the car could do much better than that.

So, with a new valve-controlled stainless steel exhaust system and adjusted zero-pressure monitoring, the output has been increased to 506 HP and 478 NM of torque. With these new numbers the RS5 will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, while top speed has been increased to 173 mph.

Next to the engine upgrade, the tuner is also offering a new Bilstein coilover kit, called the B16 PSS10, that allows for 10-stage adjustable damping, shiny black 245 carbon fabric, additional front grille, and window frames in the Black Edition. The package is finished by a new set of 20" wheels painted in diamond black polish.

Press release after the jump.

The Bilstein coilover kit, called B16 PSS10, allows for 10-stage adjustable damping in both the compression and rebound cycles. For the demonstration purposes, different left and right rims of the vehicle were coated with respective coating: diamond black polish in dimensions of 9.5 x 20 inch at the front and 11x20-inch at the rear. Driver side spider SC1 and passenger side Varianza T1S admire everyone with the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (XL) front 255/30R20 and rear 295/25R20 wheels.

To increase performance, the valve-controlled stainless steel exhaust system was added, and zero-pressure monitoring was adjusted. As a resultof such modification, the 4.2-liter V8 FSI engine, which has already provided 331 KW / 450 hp / 430 Nm ability, accelerated from 0 to 100 km /h in 4.6 seconds and provided an electronically limited top speed of 250 km / h, now provides 372 kW / 506 hp / 478 Nm and a sprint from 0 to100 km / h in 4.2 seconds. The maximum speed limit has been raised to 280 km / h. It is possible to reach even 300 km / h, of course, only with changed tires.

With regard to the electronics, it should be mentioned a power converter for amplifying the electronic gas signal andthe possibility of DVD-activation while driving. In addition, optional carbon fiber and custom leather trim are available on request.

The total cost of the complete vehicle is about 113.900 €, the cost of reconstruction is 18.900 € including taxes and TÜV-registration. Incidentally, Senner Tuning AG also gladly assists in the purchase of new vehicles, and also addresses issues with regard to financing and/or leasing.

It looks like their RS4 Avant, only their color is the difference but in spite that I’m still impressed and amazed with this. Moreover, it’s a good thing that it also has an impressive interior.

As what I’ve expected with Audi. Well, sometimes it is so tiring to see a luxury sedan. Anyway, I’m glad that it had a nice and impressive engine output which could give a great speed on it.

Too black, that’s why I can’t see the beauty that this RS5 had but still impressive for it had the look of a sophisticated and a classy car.

Looks like their RS4 Avant, only their color is the difference but it is still impressive and amazing for me. Well, the exterior design is simple but very appealing.

Sorry for my ignorance but does the Audi comes up in any matte color? I think this car would be more beautiful if they made a better paint job. But like the usual Audi has an amazing design.

You guys are joking if you think Audi has poor "build quality". Reliability did used to be an issue though. That seems to be changing.

Audi should produce the Quattro concept from the Paris show.... a light version of the RS5.Take out some of the luxury and add more aluminum... that and add a 6speed manual...and the car would be a classic like the original.

They lowered it and put rims on it. Wow, this company means business. Seriously, intake, header, exhaust could have achieved the same performance increase.

This version of the 4.2 is already almost maxed out from the factory. That this tuning company is able to squeeze out more than 50hp from the N/A 4.2 without tearing apart the engine or adding any means of forced induction is rather fascinating.

fascinating, hardly. A turbo or SC could do much better. Also, they are taking 0.1 off the sprint and that is the only figure we have.

Are you serious? This version of the 4.2 is already almost maxed out from the factory. That this tuning company is able to squeeze out more than 50hp from the N/A 4.2 without tearing apart the engine or adding any means of forced induction is rather fascinating.

Wow, what a company. They lowered it and put rims on it. Wow, this company means business. Seriously, intake, header, exhaust could have achieved the same performance increase.

yes totally agree with you, also the paint job give some more aggressiveness to the car. well of course the regular version is not like this.

dang it looks so aggressive with those wheels and front bumpers. it would have this a5 rather than having an M3 or M5 class vehicle from BMW.

am sure there is a market for this car, but wish Audi Product Planning would recognize that many enthusiasts would prefer a 4 door or Avant version.

since this is a 5 hole I think they will properly fit in your mazdaspeed3 you only have to use a lowering spring and a good set of shocks with stopper for the tires not to starch underneath your chassis.

lovely set of wheels, Looks compatible with my MazdaSpeed3, I wonder what brand of wheels is that. well back to the car, I’m really amazed with the a5 it performs well and very agile one. for sure senner had made this baby more than what I’ve said.
