Audi Q5 Custom Concept at Wörthersee Tour 2009
Audi made their first appearance at the Wörthersee Tour in Austria this year, with quite a display. They showcased 20 cars total in their 3,000 sq ft stand, from the TT RS, to the R8 V10, and A1 Sportback Concept.
The highlight of the Audi display however was a heavily modified version of the 2009 Q5, called (quite descriptively) the Audi Q5 custom concept. For this new concept, Audi engineers lowered the Q5’s suspension by 2.36 inches, widened the track by 3.54 inches, added big 21-inch custom wheels, and gave it a special Daytona Gray paint finish.
They didn’t stop there, of course. They also tuned the output of the Q5’s 3.0-liter TFSI V6 engine from a decent 333hp to 408hp, which gives this Q5 an incredible 0-62 mph time of only 4.4 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph.
Some vehicles of note on display at the Audi booth were both the coupe and roadster versions of the TT RS, the R8 5.2 V10, R8 GT3, and the A1 Sportback Concept. Also on display were the production A3 Cabriolet, A4 allroad quattro, A5 Cabriolet, S5, RS 6, TT Coupe, A4 Avant, and A3 Sportback. They also displayed some historic Audi models: Audi 50, 100 Coupé S, Ur-quattro, 100, TT Coupé (1st generation), and the A2.
Also announced at the Wörthersee Tour is the Audi Customizing club, which allows chosen participants from the event to submit creative design ideas for Audi A3 accessories (spoilers, headlights, steering wheels, wheels, etc.) The participants will log in at www.audi-customizing-club.de with their invitation code and submit their designs this summer. Three winners will be chosen, and their designs will be featured on an upcoming Audi showcar and shown to the public at an event in the future.
