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?

      Shmee first off thank you for an exciting and real-world take on this latest ABT iteration of the RS5! It is absolutely wonderful! It's so refreshing to see this car at over 500HP and the carbon fiber add-ons definitely take the look of sportiness to the level that it deserves! It actually looks like it should be that way in stock form, a testament to the class and refinement of the ABT engineers that birthed this and other stylings for a wide variety of automobiles. I'm also HUGELY excited with anticipation for the upcoming 2019 RS5 Sportback coming to the US this fall and when I purchase mine next year I hope that ABT offers an RS5-R Sportback upgrade for it as well!!! Looking forward to your review of the future Audi RS5-R Sportback!
      Keep up the good work Shmee and GOD bless you!

      I love how people actually move to the right for faster moving vehicles on the Autobahn, it isn't common at all to have that luxury in the U.S.

      I will always prefer reviews by individual youtubers over sites such as motortrend as the reviews are honest and not paid for to show specific results. I love how in the motortrend RS5 vs C63S video, Johny Liberman blamed the RS5 for not feeling good at high speeds instead of his own lack of confidence or ability while you have Shmee here blasting down the autobahn at higher speeds in an RS5 with more power over stock and not even flinching.

      Fuck motortrend and their biased crap.
