Check out these very cool modifications to the Audi A5. Do you think they're worth nearly €12,000?
Audi customizer Senner Tuning has released details about their latest modification. The German company's Audi A5 Black and White is now available.
Engineers first attacked the cars aerodynamics and weight by installing a carbon fiber spoiler apron with matching side-mirror housings. Carbon fiber is also used on a new rear bumper, one of many alterations at the back. Also found is a new rear spoiler and lip, new LED taillights, and a customized stainless steel quad-exhaust. Total cost of these mods: €3377.
New 20-inch ASA GT1 alloy wheels were also mounted. The wheels are available in either Shiny Silver or Matte Black, with the possibility of a separate color ring trim near the wheels' edge. Choices for the rim lip include orange, white, red, and silver. Measuring 9x20 in front, 10.5x20 in back, the wheels are wrapped in Vredestein ultra Sessanta XL tires. The company mounted a Bilstein B16 PSS10 fully adjustable coilover suspension to enhance the handling capabilities. These changes cost just under €4600.
Track wheels are also available for an additional €250.
Senner Tuning also retuned the engine to make it more powerful and performance-driven. The 3.0-liter TDI now produces 300 horsepower and a maximum 600 Nm of torque. Speed is electronically limited to 280 km/h. When combined with the new sport air filter, the cost of the under-the-hood modifications is €1649.
Last, designers looked at the car's interior, and decided some further changes needed to be made. They used silver-lined carbon fiber to surround the ashtray cover, center console, and both the front and rear door panels. Total price for this is €1690. The company charges an additional €395 to trim out the instrument cluster.
All in all, the car does look pretty hot with all these changes. But for over €11,700, maybe mix-and-matching only select modifications is a better decision than getting the full package.
