The ABT upgrades are expected to produce and additional 80 hp, boosting it from 450 to 530 peak horsepower.

The ABT muffler system offers improved sound from the V6 engine with its four carbon 102 mm tailpipes. The Audi RS5-R sits on ABT Sport GR 21 inch wheels with 275/25 ZR21 tires.
ABT built a new front lip, front flics and a front grille frame with RS5-R logo. Optional carbon fibre ABT wheel arch vents and a glossy rear skirt finish off the exterior with a sporty look. The interior includes partial leather seats with the RS5-R logo, ABT gear shift cover and ABT RS5-R “1 of 50” badging.
