ABT Sportsline, the world’s largest Audi/VW tuner will unveil a 510hp Supercharged version of the Audi S5 at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show in just a few days. Called the AS5-R, the fully reworked coupe gets a boost of 156hp thanks to a supercharger system. ABT first showed a modified version of the S5 at the 2008 SEMA Show

ABT claims the added power is enough to rocket the AS5-R to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 181 mph! Possibly even more impressive is the fact that this super-coupe maintains the same level of fuel consumption and emissions as the standard vehicle.

As expected with ABT, the AS5-R is includes a whole host of modifications including a coilover setup, 20-inch BR alloy wheels and 380mm rotors at all four corners.

As is obvious, the car features an aero kit, designed to keep the car planted at high speed on the German autobahn. It includes a new front grille, a new bumper with a specific fog-light design, front fender gills, side skirts and a rear bumper with cutouts for the 4-pipe muffler system.
