The new Audi A5 combines a sporty and an unobtrusive design to a powerful, elegant and individual appearance. “A uniquely beautiful car and thus a real challenge for us,” says Hans-Jürgen Abt. The managing director of Abt Sportsline raved about the new Coupe from Ingolstadt, but he emphasizes that “our designers and engineers were able to improve the outstanding base model even more”. The character of the noble sportscar still maintains but after getting a special treatment in the Allgaeu it appears more dynamical.

By means of improved motor management, Abt turns the serial 240 hp (176 kW) into powerful 272 hp (200 kW). With an extra Abt turbo charger, the power even increases to 300 well feeded horses. Diesel and sportiness belong together since long. Certainly, Abt
Sportsline will successively modify later developed A5 engines.
To ensure a perfect handling of the noble power package, Abt also makes use of its adjustable sports suspension, besides the serial Quattro engine. All the more, the Abt AS5 will be brought to a standstill by means of the Abt brake system with a disc diameter of
