ABT has announced the availability of its brand new kit for the first ever Audi RS5 Sportback, and the package brings about both aesthetic and mechanical upgrades. Dubbed the ABT RS5-R Sportback, only 50 examples will be made, so order yours now if you fancy.

Let’s start with performance. The ABT RS5-R boasts an output of 503 hp and 680 Nm of torque, up from the standard 444 hp and 600 Nm figure. The century sprint is done in 3.6 seconds (0.3 seconds quicker than standard) and top speed is capped at 280 km/h. This is achieved with ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit, an ABT auxiliary water cooler kit, ABT exhaust system and ABT air intake. Other upgrades include ABT height-adjustable suspension springs, as well as ABT sports stabilisers on both axles.

On the visual side of things, the RS5-R benefits from a range of aggressive-looking aerodynamic trim, starting with the ABT front lip, ABT front flics and ABT front grille frame with RS5-R logo. The flanks with optional ABT wheel arch vents and carbon fins add more menace, and the wheels are 21-inch ABT Sport GR items wrapped with super slim 275/25 profile tyres.

The rear features an ABT rear spoiler and ABT rear skirt add-on with RS5-R logo. A four-pipe ABT exhaust system with 102 mm diameter carbon sleeves is also included. All the carbon-fibre exterior parts are given a high-gloss finish.

Inside, there’s no shortage of carbon-fibre trimmings as well. The lightweight material graces the front seat shells, door cards, steering wheel, dashboard, and centre console. Even the gear stick comes with CF cover. Elsewhere, there’s the “ABT RS5-R‚ 1 of 50” badge, ABT door sill strips, as well as ABT integrated entrance lights with RS5-R logo.

How much does this cost, then? Well, the kit alone plus paint and installation costs slightly over 33,000 euros (RM154k). Otherwise, you can order the car with the ABT kit as well, with prices starting from 116,700 euros (RM545k). What do you think of this? Too much carbon-fibre?
