Audi is featuring a number of vehicles at the show, including the
TT RS, the V10-engined R8 and the previously revealed A1 Sportback concept car.
But the star of the show will almost certainly be the custom Q5 concept. Audi
engineers prepared the sporty concept specifically for the show, and a number of
modifications have been made to give the car its new look.

Under the hood Audi has seen fit to take the Q5's standard 3.0L TFSI V6 engine
and give it some much needed upgrades. While the stock Q5's V6 churns out a
healthy 333hp (245kW), the Q5 custom concept has a much sportier 408hp (300kW),
leading to some massive gains in its straight line performance - the sprint to
62mph is dispensed with in just 4.4 seconds. The upgraded power rating comes
from a modified air intake and a cooling water strut brace in the engine
compartment, helping engineers eek more power out of the supercharged unit.

Most noticeably, the proportions have been dramatically altered
by both widening the car's track by around 90mm, as well as lowering the ride
height by 60mm. Decked out in a custom Daytona Gray color, the SUV also rides on
massive 21in wheels, making its proportions even more aggressive.
For a few
days in May the town of Reifnitz, Austria is overrun with a plethora of Audi and
Volkswagen models as fans of both marques attend the world’s largest Volkswagen
Group gathering. Known as the Worthersee Tour, the event has been running for
almost 30 years and this year Audi decided to offer up some of its most die-hard
fans a special treat in the form of an extensively customized Q5 SUV.
