HS Motorsport Audi S5 Cabrio

Audi S5 Cabrio HS Motorsport Cars lovers expect something jaw dropping from the HS Motorsport tuners in Eching.The Audi S5 is now in their hands. First of all the exterior design is very good looking and doesn't need any modification or upgrade. The tuners focused on performance this time,they managed making some amazing upgrades. The first achievement is the power of the car, 375 horse power from 333 horse power. The torque also increased from 440 Nm to 525 Nm. The maximum speed is 290 km/h. The exhaust was also modified,a brand new exhaust silencer made by Cargraphic was installed on the car. The wheel disks in the front axle and the rear too are produced also by Cargraphic.The braking system is high performance made by Brembo,not to forget that some parts on the exterior and interior are made of carbon.

The customers fairly expect over and over again something extraordinary from the HS Motorsport company from Eching, located near Munich, the more so the perfection for a valuable client is the highest precept for Bavaria's tuner. This time Audi S5 must be exposed to intensive care of the team from Eching.

Strictly speaking, the external look of the cabriolet from Ingolstadt doesn't need any upgrades. Therefore, the crew begins with the engine output increase which is not visible at first glance. This results in the fact that substantial 375 HP instead of standard 333 HP are now waiting for calling. The maximum torque shows 525 Nm in comparison to initial 440 Nm, which is now blasting the crankshaft without mercy. Increasing the limit of Vmax to the new value of 290 km/h is just a logical way at such performance.

Nevertheless, modifications are visible now! An exhaust silencer from Cargraphic with four round inclined rolled-in 89 mm exhaust pipes announces soon arrival of the Audi S5 Cabrio like a post-horn did in its time. At the present moment, there is only one version assigned for export.

A tested version is being prepared for Germany.

Wheel disks at the front axle in 9x21 inch with 255/30ZR21 tyres and in 10,5x21 inch with 295/25ZR21 tyres at the rear axle are produced by Cargraphic also. Use of Bilstein thread suspension B16 PSS10 ensures perfect match of the wheel/tyre combination to the wheel housings.

On demand - and at this performance absolutely advisable - a brake system from Brembo with double 380x32 mm brake disks and 6-piston monoblock saddle for the front axle can be installed. In conclusion, various carbon parts for the external cover and also for the interior should be mentioned.
