Tuner car reviews


The Abt RS5-R takes the latest generation Audi RS5 and dials it up to 11 as I get to experience in a high speed run! Visually the car is enhanced aerodynamically with new carbon parts, along with power from the 2.9l TT V6 raised from 450hp to 530hp and torque up from 600Nm to 690Nm. Taking a look at both the RS5-R and Abt RS4-R beside it, we then jump in to head to the Autobahn!It was clear the RS5-R would be quick, but the ease with which it clears 250km/h and onwards is impressive. Up to a top here of 281km/h, approximately the same as the car's own limiter, and maintaining a solid feeling at that pace thanks to the Quattro system in part.The particular car in Sonoma Green is accented wonderfully by the contrasting carbon fibre parts throughout, along with sitting lower on new suspension with new 21" wheels and exhaust to boot.
