One of Audi’s sexiest sedans gets even bolder.
Audi’s A5 Sportback incorporates the sleek styling of a coupe with the comfort of a sedan and the utility of a wagon to create a versatile and refined five-door. The top model in Audi’s sportback series adds some athleticism with a supercharged V-6 and a sport-tuned suspension. Senner Tuning however, has taken it a step further, adding a bit more sport and power to the S5 with some engine, chassis, and wheel upgrades for a more unique and sexy Sportback.
An important aspect during the tuning process was to preserve the Sportback’s stunning features by not adding bodywork or aerodynamic upgrades. Instead, Senner Tuning highlighted the Sportback’s appearance with new Work T1S VARA wheels. The two-piece, 20-inch wheels are finished in a diamond black polish and measure 9 x 20 at the front and 10.5 x 20 at the rear. The wide wheels are shod in new 245/30 R20 front and 295/25 R20 rear Vredestein Sessanta Ultrac for superb grip and ride quality. New Senner Tuning lowering springs that bring the ride height down 40/30 mm (1.6/1.18 in) and maintain the S5’s comfortable, yet athletic ride.
The highlight of the S5 Sportback is its 3.0-liter supercharged V-6, making a healthy 333 hp and 324 lb-ft. stock. To boost performance Senner Tuning has added a stainless steel exhaust system, high-performance air filter, and retuned engine electronics to produce 370 hp (375 PS) and 365 lb-ft of torque. While no performance specifications were released, expect a quicker 0-62 mph time than the stock 5.4 seconds, and a top speed of over 155 mph.
Inside, Senner Tuning preserved the Sportback’s premium interior, and kept the cabin mostly stock. The lone modification is the carbon fiber clad gauge cluster, which gives the interior a sportier feel.
The sexy, sleek, and powerful Senner Tuning S5 Sportback is currently available in markets where the A5 Sportback is sold (sorry United States). Individual modifications are also available through Senner Tuning.
