Audi A5 Sportback was been unveiled in 2010 and no other updates have been announced since then, except for a minor facelift in 2012. Lucky us, we have tons of tuners that have showed interest in the A5 and we can update the look and the output of the sports coupe. The latest kit we have comes from ABT Sportline and fits any A5 Sportback with a build date of November 2011 and later.
The tuner started by adding a new aerodynamic package that includes a new front lip spoiler, fender vents, and a new rear skirt. There is also a new exhaust system with four end pipes and a new set of wheels, sized 19 or 20 inches, depending on the customer’s wishes. Unfortunately, ABT does not list a price for these upgrades.
The biggest updates however, will be made under the hood. In here the tuner is offering updates for every possible engine, so no matter what car you drive - petrol or diesel variant - you can significantly improve the performance of your A5.
The updates will start with the base 1.8 TFSI engine which will be increased from the standard 170 horsepower up to a total of 211 horsepower for only €1,949 ($2,596 at the current exchange rates). Next, there is the 2.0 TFSI, which jumps from the 211 to 270 horsepower – this upgrade comes in at a grand total of €2,349 ($3,129).For the 3.0 TFSI, the output goes from the standard 272 horsepower up to an impressive 380 horsepower at the tune of €3,419 ($4,555). Diesel fans can increase their standard 2.0 TDI version from the standard 177 to 205 horsepower and the 3.0 TDI version goes from 245 to 300 horsepower for a price of €1,949 ($2,596) and €2,849 ($3,795), respectively.
In order to support the extra power, the tuner is also suggesting a new sports coilover system which can lower the car’s ride by 50 millimeters (1.96 inches). Additionally, ABT offers up some extra stopping power with its performance front brakes that include 345 x 30 mm (13.58- x 1.18-inch) discs, flexible steel lines and upgraded calipers. Just like the exterior upgrades, ABT does not offer up a price on the suspension and braking components just yet.
You can purchase the entire kit at ABT’s website and we’re pretty sure you’ll get a nice discount for purchasing all of the components at once.
