You can also ask the aftermarket specialist to tweak an unsuspecting standard A5 Sportback, with all modifications neatly including a handsome exterior design checkbook next to the power increase.

There’s no official Audi RS5 Cabriolet just yet, but you can buy the next best thing – the S5 droptop and then give a call to the specialists over at ABT Sportsline that will hook your ride to their modifications and – among other – increase oomph to 425 horsepower. You could also pay them a visit if you wanted a metal roof over – specifically selecting the A5 Sportback – because ABT also has some solutions for the fastback’s milder nature.

As far as design is concerned, both models take it easy on the viewer – ABT front spoiler with an offset air splitter, ABT rear skirt set with diffuser and quad exhaust outlets, along with a family of alloy wheels of the 19 or 20-inch variety should do the trick. The S5 Cabriolet gains a new engine control unit for the 3.0-liter V6 that ensures the arrival of the 425 ponies – which represents a 20 percent power increase from the standard mill. Meanwhile, the engine control unit for the A5 Sportback touches a variety of versions – the 2.0-liter TFSI version for example surges from 252 to 330 hp. A5 diesels aren’t forgotten, topping out with the 3.0-liter TDI jumping from 272 to 325 hp.
