After the wide body version presented at the Geneva Motor Show, the ABT Audi Q5 and SQ5 are now also available with the ABT Aero Package Slim Body. Depending on the production engine, a lot more horsepower are also possible – for example 425 HP (313 kW) for the SQ5. Long live sports!
“The kit includes a sporty, elegant front skirt, dynamic door strip attachments and an imposing rear skirt set, including the sonorous ABT Rear Muffler with 102 mm carbon tailpipes for the SQ5 or with black stainless-steel tailpipes for the Q5,” explains CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt: “In contrast to the production version with just two chrome brackets, this finally makes the exhaust visible again.” Owners of a Q5 or SQ5 can literally “top up” with a particularly attractive ABT Rear Wing. While the alternative wide body version offers a little more space in the wheel housings, the 20 and 21 inch wheels available for this version are certainly not frail either: Customers can choose between the models DR in gun-metal (21 inch) oder mystic black (20/21 inch) as well as ER-C (20 inch) in matt black and FR (21 inch) in mystic black. Optionally, ABT Coilover Suspension Springs are used to provide an even more dynamic handling and a variable lowering from 35 to 60 mm.
To ensure that the suspension does not get bored with the production engine, the leading tuner for cars from the Audi and Volkswagen Group can also supply a power boost on request. ABT Sportsline takes the three-liter turbo gasoline engine in the SQ5 from originally 354 HP (260 kW) to a fiery 425 HP (313 kW) and a torque increase of 10% to 550 Nm. The power boost compared to the production car is provided by the specially developed ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit with software which is specially adjusted to the respective vehicle model. The AEC continuously adjusts more than 25 different parameters and communicates directly with the original engine control unit. Optimum use of power and maximum protection for the engine at the same time are the result. The AEC is also available for a large range of other engines. The top diesel of the Q5 with 286 HP (210 kW), for example, grows to 330 HP (243 kW), with the maximum torque increasing from 620 Nm to 670 Nm. Expert certificate and warranty are always included.
On request, the engine can be started in style with the ABT Start-Stop-Switch-Cap. An ABT Shift Know Cover from real carbon makes shifting gears a pleasure. And when the time comes to exit the car, the ABT Integrated Entrance Lights bid a silent goodbye!
