Audi RS5 500HP tuning by Senner

The Senner Tuning AG Company from Ingelheim willingly took an Audi RS5 as a challenge, making it the most powerful version of the model, an expected result when it comes to appreciate Benno Senner's work.
10-stage adjustable damping in both the compression and rebound cycles were possible by adding the Bilstein coilover kit, which was named B16 PSS10, while performance was increased by developing a valve-controlled stainless steel exhaust system, resulting in a 4.2-liter V8 FSI engine, which delivers 506 hp, 478 Nm, a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, with a maximum speed limit of 280 km/h and there are also great chances to reach a top speed of 300 km/h, provided that the tires are changed.
Additional front grille, window frames in the Black Edition, together with mirrors in shiny black carbon fabric, describe the outer shell of the Audi in a kind of elegance. On customers' request, custom leather trim and optional carbon fiber are available.
The complete vehicle was priced at about $113,900 and the cost of reconstruction raised to $18,900.
