ABT AS5 Dark based on 2014 Audi A5 Sportback

Article by Christian A., on September 22, 2014

If you are a fan of Star Wars and want to enter the dark side, the ABT AS5 Dark might be the perfect vehicle to take you there. Available as a Coupe or Sportback, the AS5 Dark takes the Audi A5 to the next level and as expected it arrives with plenty of aerodynamic elements. The new vehicle gets a new front spoiler lop, side sills, a rear spoiler, a rear skirt set, an ABT ‘Dark’ decal set and the ABT ‘Dark’ emblem set.

The exterior design is completed by the 20-inch CR-Design wheels wrapped in high performance tyres. The AS5 Dark was brought closer to the ground thanks to new ABT spacers, while the new rear muffler with four end pipes (black-chromed) provides a better sound of the engine.

The interior offers new ABT ‘Dark’ floor mats and emblems at the headrests.

There are no details regarding any engine upgrades, but we do know that the standard vehicle is offered with the 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine that produces 211 hp (155 kW) as well as with the bigger 3.0-liter TFSI delivering 272 hp (200 kW).

For diesel fans, Audi A5 comes with the 2.0-liter TDI engine with 177 hp (130 kW) and with the 3.0-liter TDI that generates 245 hp (180 kW).

ABT AS5 Dark

Be it Batman or The Shadow: even heroes like dark clothes. The new ABT AS5 DARK is one of them and available as a Coupé or Sportback. Even without the optional ABT Power, the Bavarian styling package radiates superiority. “Designer Walter de’Silva is proud of his creation and rightly so – but as an AS5 DARK the Audi A5 is multifaceted and even more assertive“, says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt: “And since we are offering the comprehensive re-design for a bargain price right now, it’s high time to visit your nearest ABT Partner.“

The Audi A5-based ABT AS5 DARK only fully comes into its own when painted or car-wrapped in black. The effect of the set, however, cannot be reduced to its colour, which is excitingly contrasted by bright red elements, e.g. on the front spoiler lip and the rear skirt set, which make the Audi A5’s silhouette seem even more exciting.

The Coupé also features a rear spoiler and side skirts. Acoustically the ABT AS5 DARK is also “dark”: the sonorous 4-pipe exhaust system has a compelling smoky “voice” and, depending upon the engine, emits quite a variety of sounds. And, needless, to say, the tailpipes are chrome-plated in black.

Another highlight are the 20’’ ABT CR wheels, making the car more muscular when combined with wide 265 tyres and wheel spacers. The red flange leaves a dynamic and aggressive impression and, when rotating, an almost hypnotic one through its spoke neck gaps.

And since a real hero also needs his own logo, ABT Sportsline has adorned the AS5 DARK with letterings and emblems within and without. You also get the right set of floor mats, of course. After all, a hero’s motto should always be “Stay clean!”
