German tuner Senner Tuning has released its take on Audi's S5 Coupe. The call it the White Beast - apparently the Germans learned their "lesson" after last year's "White Power" RS6...
Visually, Senner has added a new front fascia, mimicking that of the Audi RS5, as well as a rear lip spoiler, LED taillamps and a new rear apron. Large 21-inch wheels better fill out the wells, and the suspension has been lowered (40 millimeters in front, 35 in back) to give the car a more aggressive road stance. Inside, a carbon fiber interior trim package has been added, as well as a new tachometer display screen.
Not only the optics but also the engine power has been upgraded. An additional 30hp and 35Nm are available for Audi S5, creating an overall power of 384hp and 475Nm. They have achieved the increase by installing a performance air filter plug-in package and a different exhaust system. Furthermore, the speed limitation of 250km/h was raised, so now the car can reach 285km/h. The acceleration up to this speed was boosted by the Power Converter, an electronic module of acceleration of the signal from the gas pedal.
The interior has strong carbon fibre finishes to emphasise the car's performance abilities. Senner charges €18,990 (US$25,338) for the package, including technical inspection costs.
White beast - by Senner Tuning AG
The German art of tuning: a worthy example is the new S5 that had taken the form of a truly individual "sports car" in the hands of Senner Tuning AG tuners from Ingelheim. Apart from the decent design kit, Senner Tuning still has various upgrades ready to apply on the S5 series.
A front spoiler, stretched deeply below, with a large air inlet in RS5 Look with a well-suited radiator grill, designed in the form of cells, contributes to the perfect car body along the sliding air streams and optics. Additionally, we can find a rear spoiler lip at the body, as well as a rear apron unit performed in Carbon Look by Rieger tuning house. To make the appearance complete, the car is equipped with modern LED back lights, and a number-plate light has light-emitting diodes in clear white, too.
But this is still not enough. As the name "white beast" implies, not only the optics but also the engine power have been upgraded. With parametric surface optimization, performance air filter plug-in package and exhaust system, additional 30 ph and 35 Nm are now available for Audi S5, and the overall power now makes 384 ph and 475 Nm.
Furthermore, the speed limitation of 250 km/h was raised, so now the car can reach the full 285 km/h. The acceleration up to this speed was boosted by the Power Converter, an electronic module of acceleration of the signal from the gas pedal.
The corresponding sound of the newly acquired power is produced by the Senner Tuning exhaust system which emphasizes the car's sport-style appearance optically, too, with its four exhaust pipes of high-grade steel. The exhaust system includes a sport exhaust silencer and an X-pipe and is provided with an EU grant for vehicle operating.
To make the performance of the reinforced motor core optimal for the street and allow no losses, the craftsmen from Senner Tuning use lowered suspension springs with 40-mm suspension at the front axle and 35-mm suspension at the rear axle which also create a nice-looking aspect between the body and the rims.
In addition, giant and two-parted 21-inch polished light alloy wheel rims Work Varianza T1S in diamond black, that were produced exclusively for Senner Tuning, find their application with the white beast. High-performance tyres by Hankook with an S1 Evo label, as big as 255/30 R21 and 295/25 R21, were installed on 9x21" and 10,5x21" rims. And there is no need to adjust the wheel arch edges!
The interior has also undergone some changes. A carbon fiber interior package, including the tachometer display screen, sticks out from the rest. There is also a fancy foot mat of high-quality velour - this is where sport ambitions merge with individuality.
The cost of the whole renovation kit is 18,990 Euro including technical inspection fees!
