ABT Sportsline has unveiled their latest project based on the stylish Audi RS5 Convertible. The cabriolet comes with a number of styling upgrades and new top speed.

Audi RS5 Convertible has a brutal 4.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 with 450HP (331 kW) at 6,000RPM and 430Nm (317 lb-ft) at 4,000RPM. The redline of the engine is all the way up to 8,250RPM. It is connected to a 7-speed S-tronic gearbox, which sends the power to Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

The performance – 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) with speed governor and 280 km/h (174 mph) with optional package. ABT raises the top speed to 290 km/h (180 mph).

The exterior of ABT RS5 Convertible features new fender inserts, a set of enormous wheels – 8.5J x 19" at the front and 9.5J x 20" at the rear fitted with 255/35 R19 or 275/30 R20 sport tires, respectively. The height adjustable suspension springs can lower the ride height between 15 and 40 mm. The tuning company also offers wheel spacer kit – 4 x 15 mm or 4 x 25 mm.

Last, but not least is the ABT muffler system including new mid and rear mufflers giving sensational sound to that powerful V8 engine.

The ABT RS5 Convertible is thus always a fresh breeze – be it closed or open.
