Based on the Audi S5, the ABT Sportsline AS5-R takes that model's standard 4.2 liter V8 with 354 hp and uprates it to a whopping 510 hp. 0 to 100 km/h comes in at 4.5 seconds and top speed is a fairly smoking 292km/h.

The ABT AS5-R has previously been revealed but with little info. Now, here comes the official announcement from ABT Sportsline with all the details.

Based on the Audi S5, the ABT Sportsline AS5-R takes that model's standard 4.2 liter V8 with 354 hp and uprates it to a whopping 510 hp. 0 to 100 km/h comes in at 4.5 seconds and top speed is a fairly smoking 292 km/h (181 mph).

New brakes are required to deal with all that extra push which ABT addresses with 380 millimeter-diameter disks providing the corresponding pull on the vehicle. The ABT Coil-over suspension also tightens the AS5-R's grip on the road.

There's also a cosmetic do-over with a front spoiler and inner fender skirt, new grille, rear skirt and fog lamps all by ABT. A quad exhaust and gill-shaped side air inlets convey all the heavy breathing this pavement muncher will be doing out there on the road. 20-inch alloy wheels round out the serious sports car look of the AS5-R.
