2014 ABT Audi RS5-R is Capable of Reaching Top Speed of 290 km/h
2014 ABT Audi RS5-R is an exceptionl tuning, which deserves our attention. The reason it grabbed it was that it can reach 100 km/h from standstill in just 4.3 seconds, while its top speed stands at the 290 km/h. In order to achieve such a performance, the popular Audi tuners from Bavaria sent the production sports car Audi A5 to the training camp. The result is marvelous: it now produces 470 hp (346 kW) and 440 Newton metres (324 lb-ft) of torque.
Behind these figures however, stands the work of the engineers, which have added new body kit to the high-performance coupé. The martial look of the car, met the lightweight construction and a host of functional details.
Precisely, the carbon front skirt with AeroFlics improves the airflow. The low side skirts and the rear skirt as well as the striking wing also comprise of the high-tech carbon fibre material. In addition, ABT Sportsline also added special inserts for the front fenders.
RS5-R appears like a real racing car. This is due to the big 20" ABT rims of type ER-F20 that come in "black magic" color. An interesting fact is thah the lightweight, forged alloy wheels only weigh just 9.3 kg each. They were fittedd with 275/30 ZR20 high-performance tires.
The new exhaust system made a significant contribution to the performance increase. As a matter of fact, ABT offers it in two variants. The first one is the conventional style in serial tail pipe look, while the second one is an alternative side-pipe variant going out of the left skirt of the vehicle. The gigantic tail pipe is a feast for the eyes and the ears.
