Abt has revealed a new power upgrade for their tuned version of the Audi Q5, saying that one of the three engine choices gets a boost in horsepower. They have also sent out a few new pictures to check out.
German tuners Abt Sportsline will be giving their new Abt Q5 a power boost. The company already increases horsepower on the 2.0-liter TFSI from 211 to 240, but the tuner firm says a 275hp upgrade will be available in due time. The 3.0-liter TDI is available with up 310 hp and 611 Nm of torque.
Along with this announcement, they released some new images of the SUV. Introduced in Essen, Abt's Audi Q5 receives new styling from front-to-back and top-to-bottom, as well as performance upgrades. Modifications are done to each of the three engine choices, which begins with a 2.0-liter TDI getting a boost to 190 hp. Bigger brakes are included to keep the vehicle under control. The company's Level Control air-spring suspension kit is an available option, with lowering springs as standard.
Other benefits include a custom built muffler which leads to quad-exhaust pipes. A new rear wing and apron, larger front grill, new front spoiler, large fender extensions, and door trims round out the list of body improvements. Abt has also added new 22-inch BR alloys, and carbon fiber pattern leather to the interior.
If you're interested in purchasing an Abt Q5, you will be glad to know that the firm has sales partners in many major cities across the world. Sadly, they have no sales outlet in Australia/New Zealand.
