280km/h Abt RS5-R Test Drive on the Autobahn! | REVIEW

The Abt RS5-R takes the latest generation Audi RS5 and dials it up to 11 as I get to experience in a high speed run! Visually the car is enhanced aerodynamically with new carbon parts, along with power from the 2.9l TT V6 raised from 450hp to 530hp and torque up from 600Nm to 690Nm. Taking a look at both the RS5-R and Abt RS4-R beside it, we then jump in to head to the Autobahn!

It was clear the RS5-R would be quick, but the ease with which it clears 250km/h and onwards is impressive. Up to a top here of 281km/h, approximately the same as the car's own limiter, and maintaining a solid feeling at that pace thanks to the Quattro system in part.

The particular car in Sonoma Green is accented wonderfully by the contrasting carbon fibre parts throughout, along with sitting lower on new suspension with new 21" wheels and exhaust to boot.

Thanks for watching, Tim

      The Abt RS5-R pushes on with incredible power and comfort as I go for a test drive on the Autobahn! Reaching over 280km/h, it also looks the part with the new carbon fibre aerodynamic parts. What do you think of their take on the Audi RS5?

      Buy a Merc if you want this overt styling..... think it actually has cheapened the car. Wouldn't mind the engine upgrade though for my RS4.

      Idk about the Rs5 r Abt it looks a bit riced in a modern way and rather confused as if Abt wasn't able to decide wether to go full out or just nicely detailed so it's just a weird thing inbetween, I think it's mainly because of the canards, they make the car look like something is totally missing

      "Abt solutely" everywhere. Very Great Exterior design package from Abt. The car could have even more power (620-680ish) in my opinion, since it seems so stable at high speed.
      Thanks for looking in the back mirror at around 230 Km/t – on the Autobahn there might always come something faster.

      Been wondering lately if we all now care to much about car sound. Just a few years ago i didn't notice people talking about it that much now gigantic discussion. Maybe it because of turbos, hybrid cars, and electric cars. People have become afraid of loosing car sounds they take for granted and have become obsessed by engine noise

    • Daniel Godlewski
      Daniel Godlewski In reply to Allen Saunders

      Allen Saunders what u guys mentioned is true, but perhaps its also due to many sports cars being powered by smaller motors compared to years past. Yes, the cars of present day are amazingly fast, and starting to incorporate more turbos, hybrid systems, etc. for additional speed, despite being down in size. The rs4, rs5, (and many other cars as a whole) used larger motors like v10, v8’s to power the same cars using turbo v6s today. Turbos and forced induction cars are wonderful, but maybe the change in the overall sound is partially due to a smaller motor then cars of yesteryear...

      Allen Saunders, you are probably right. IMO, exhaust note comes second to visual aesthetics. I own b8 Audi S5 with V8, and love it. It is slower than nearly all competitors, but is still excitingly fast. Sounds better than all the competition. I wish it was quicker but won't sacrifice that exhaust note. I upgraded to Armytrix for exhaust ftw.
