ABT Sportsline has launched the ABT AS5 Cabrio based on Audi A5 Cabrio upgrade program. The ABT AS5 Cabrio Based on Audi A5 visual kit includes a new front grille, a 4-pipe exhaust unit, a new front apron and the side sills and 19 or 20 inc rims.
There are currently four performance increase packages available: with ABT POWER, which is the optimisation of the electronic engine management system, the 2.0 TFSI receives a sporty 275HP (202kW) instead of the serial 180 HP (132kW) or 211HP (155kW). With the 2.7 TDI, 190HP (140kW) become a high-torque 230HP (169kW). With the three litre diesel this is increased to 282HP or 207kW (series standard: 240HP / 176kW). The ABT POWER S technology is also available to the V6 diesel with the largest engine capacity, which also employs an ABT turbo charger. 310HP (228kW) then provide superior handling in all situations, and with 610Nm torque it’s full steam ahead. Logically this power also has to be restrained.
