B&B, the specialist Audi tuner, unveiled a comprehensive tuning package for the new Audi A5 and S5 Cabriolets. The whole range is given special B&B treatment and comes out of their garage probably feeling but definitely looking like new. An aerodynamic kit, 20-inch wheels with 255/30-20 tyres, adjustable suspension and large tailpipes give the cars a sporty stance.

Bottom of the range is the A5 Cabriolet powered by the 2.0 TFSI engine. The first stage of tuning consists of an electronics modification and an increase in boost pressure to take power to 184kW (250hp) and 400Nm. Second and third stages increase power to 191kW (260hp) and 217kW (295hp) respectively while the final stage achieves 228kW (310hp) and 465Nm. New airflow systems, a different turbocharger and other changes help.

For the 2.0 TDI common rail turbo diesel normal power and torque are 125kW (170hp) and 350Nm. B&B can do two stages there, one for 147kW (200hp) and 400Nm, and the other for 162kW (220hp) and 420Nm. The bigger 3.0 TDI goes from a 206kW (280hp) and 585 Nm stage one tune, to 221kW (300hp) and 600Nm, and finally up to 239kW (325hp) and 640Nm.

As for the S5 the engine electronics were optimised, a sport exhaust system installed and thus power gains made. The car gets a bump to 305kW (415hp) and peak torque of 520Nm. How's that for a fast hairdryer?
