Default ABT shows real life Q5 photos ahead of Essen debut

ABT's tuned Audi Q5 is scheduled to debut at the Essen Motor Show, but the company has released specifications and photos in advance. The SUV has been given an aggressive, sport-tuned treatment similar to that used on the Touareg, Tiguan and Q7, and will be available in the first quarter of 2009. ABT's Q5 is a fully upgraded package, from power and suspension upgrades to a full body kit.

Power is increased in all three of the available engines: the 2.0 TDI jumps from 170 horsepower to 190, the 2.0 TFSI from 211 to 240, and the range-topping 3.0 TDI jumps from 240 horses to 310, with 611 Nm torque.

ABT hasn't boosted the power without improving the underpinnings, of course. A choice of a tuned suspension with lowering springs or an ABT Level Control air-spring suspension is available. Larger, 380mm brake rotors are the focus of the enhanced braking package, which also includes a choice of ABT 20-inch rims in two styles.

With the bigger brakes visible behind those wheels, you'll want the body tweaked to match of course. ABT's Q5 body kit includes matching front and rear skirts with underride protection, fender extensions and a unique grille. Side skirts, quad exhaust outlets and a rear wing complete the package.
