ABT gave the Audi Q5 TFSI e Quattro crazy aero kit and power bump
Gotta love ABT
ABT Sportline is a German company that spends most of its time giving standard Audi vehicles more grunt and crazy aero kits and as you can imagine, they're quite good at it. The Q5 TFSI e quattro is the latest Audi to be given the ABT treament with a mad cosmetic makeover and an even madder power upgrade.
They began by fitting a new front skirt at the front and a new bumper paired with a new diffuser at the rear and then they changed the fog lamp surrounds to make them more sporty, gave the car extended fenders and a brand quad-tip exhaust system. Other parts are also available as optional extras such as an additional roof-mounted spoiler and 22-inch wheels with diamond finish.
Don't let the cosmetic alterations trick you into thinking this is all show and no go because the Q5 also gets the ABT Power performance upgrade. The turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine now develops 306 hp and 310 torques - the standard version produces 248 and 273 respectively - for a combined output, when you factor in the small electric unit, of 419 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Excellent.
Official ABT performance figures aren't available but the standard Q5 TFSI does 0-60 in 5.3 seconds and will then keep on going all the way to its 149 mph top speed. With the extra oomph, I think we can safely assume a 0-60 time under 5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 150 mph. Wishful thinking?
