Sporty elegance – the new ABT A5 Cabrio

The word cabriolet originates from French and in its broadest possible sense means to do a jump in the air. And the new Audi A5 cabriolet will do a real jump in terms of power. A specially developed control unit enables the ABT Power 'New Generation' to increase the performance of the elegant convertible with its 2.0 TFSI engine to reach 330 HP (243 kW). Compared to the series 252 HP (185 kW), this equates to an increase of more than 30 percent and is almost on a par with the S5 and its significantly higher displacement. At the same time, the maximum torque for the 2.0 TFSI has soared from 370 to 440 Nm. However, diesel fans do not need to feel left out.

The smaller of the two diesel engines is available as standard with only 190 HP (140 kW), but this can be tuned to reach 215 HP (158 kW). The maximum torque is boosted too from 400 to 440 Nm and as a result matches the level of the petrol engine after enhancing its power by ABT. The three liter diesel engine 'tweaked' by the world's largest VW and Audi tuner has even more grunt reaching a staggering maximum torque of 450 Nm, with the standard version peaking at only 400 Nm. The difference in HP is even greater by contrast with the 'smaller brother', the 2.0 TDI. ABT transforms the 3.0 TDI from having an output of 218 HP (160 kW) to an impressive 250 horsepower (184 kW).

Better performance guaranteed

It is ABT’s family tradition to make an engine perform as well as possible. Be it an optimisation of the electronic engine management, turbo chargers or compressor retrofitting – performance increases are what we do and want to do. No wonder, then, that we are the global No. I tuner of cars produced by Audi, Volkswagen, Seat and Škoda. And given our experiences gained in racing we also know that it isn’t only about power, it is also about stability. Only the two factors combined will make driving such cars real fun - permanently.

ABT POWER for your Audi A5 Cabrio – perfect chip tuning.

Be it a petrol-engine or a diesel-engine - modern cars require an electronic engine management. It is the brains, responsible for capturing, analysing and translating into specific commands all the pertinent data and parameters like engine temperature, air and fuel masses. This optimisation is the job of the specially developed ABT Power Software. It guarantees an ideal performance at equally ideal consumption levels and also sees to it that your engine is not driven too hard. You can rely on it and make your Audi A5 Cabrio perform best.  

ABT ENGINE CONTROL - ABT POWER „NEW GENERATION“

Engine technology sees a constant development. Thanks to high-tech electronics, cars are now getting ever more perfect. And in terms of performance, a new era has now also been ushered in by ABT Engine Control. Specially developed for the latest engine generations to optimise the optimum. The advantages are obvious: If you have two “brains”, either can focus upon what it does best. For ABT Engine Control, this means. All performance-relevant measurements and parameters are analysed, fine-tuned and translated into ABT POWER  commands in an extra control unit. And for you, this means maximum fun and even more safety.Even if there is a defect on the ABT Engine Control, which is highly unlikely, the original control unit is still fully functional.

ABT POWER & CO2

A better performance in the same exhaust emission category. A better performance does not necessarily mean higher CO2 emissions. At least not with ABT. While a serial model of the latest engine generation emits 0.9 to 1.0 g/hp, using ABT Power and ABT Power S reduces this level to down to 0.7 g/hp.

So the hp-based CO2 emissions are lowered by up to 30 per cent. A better performance, but no higher CO2 emissions. And the previous exhaust emission category still applies.
