The technology of the S5 was upgraded by Audi in the middle of 2019 and is now resplendent with, among other things, a 48-volt on-board power supply and a mild hybrid system. As a power source, there is now a 347 hp (255 kW) TDI, which provides a maximum torque of 700 Nm.
From 0 to 100 km/h, even this standard S5 TDI – with 4.9 seconds – beats the magical 5-second limit by a narrow margin. But the Audi can do even better – with the newly developed ABT Power performance upgrade. To achieve this, we use the high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC). In doing so, the available power increases to 384 hp (282 kW) and the maximum torque is boosted to 760 Nm.
