The RS version of the new Audi A5 is one car that definitely needs no upgrades, but German tuner, ABT Sportsline, chose to do it anyways. The tuner will unveil its RS5-R tuning kit, which will upgrade both the look and the engine output of the RS5, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
For the exterior, ABT prepared an aerodynamic kit that includes a new front apron, front splitter, side skirts and rear wing - all made in carbon fiber. The car sits on a set of 20-inch alloy wheels combined with high-performance tires. For the interior, ABT combined the highest quality black and red Alcantara with carbon-fiber insertions on the door panels. The bucket seats received racing stripes and for increased safety a stainless-steel roll cage and four-point seat belts.
The best upgrades were made under the hood where the tuner combined the V-8 engine with a new exhaust system with lateral dual pipes. As a result, the standard 450 horsepower output has been increased by 20 horsepower and the 0-to-60 mph sprint is now made in 4.6 seconds - 0.3 seconds quicker than standard version.
