ABT AS5 Sportback

ABT AS5 Sportback

German tuner Abt Sportsline just got their hands on the A5 Sportback, before most of us can even see it. The Audi A5 Sportback is described “As comfortable as a limousine, elegant as a coupĂ© and almost as practical as an Avant.” After being given the Abt treatment, the new AS5 Sportback can further be described “as dynamic as a true sports car.”

The fact that the name AS5 looks suspiciously like ASS is only an unintended benefit.

Abt tuned up two available engines on the Sportback:

2.0 TFSI
Audi A5 Sportback: 180 hp
Abt AS5 Sportback: 275 hp

3.0 TDI
Audi A5 Sportback: 240 hp
Abt AS5 Sportback: 282 hp

Audi A5 Sportback: 240 hp
Abt AS5 Sportback: 310 hp


The “POWER S” tuned 3.0 TDI engine with 310 horsepower is able to propel the AS5 Sportback from zero to 62 mph in 5.8 seconds. Bigger brakes provide quicker deceleration and special ABT wheels, available from 18- to 20-inches, add to the style. A new muffler and suspension system add to the sportiness of the car.

An ABT-styled body kit helps with aerodynamics and style by adding a front skirt, front grill, rear wing inserts, and a rear skirt set.
