Avus appears to be making a comeback after their controversial “White Power” model they dished up last week. They have done this in the form of their new matte black Audi A5 coupe and toned things down a bit by simply labelling it the “A5 Coupe Matte Black”.
Avus have focussed mainly on handling and appearance mods to the car and left the V6 Tdi under the hood with only a few minor tweaks. Some of the mods include: A new set of KW coil-overs to give the car fully adjustable compression and rebound plus a lower, stiffer set of springs.
Rubber is wrapped around a fine set of 21 inch alloys that are also finished in matte black giving the car an aggressive stealth bomber look. Apparently the paint finish is achieved by wrapping the car in matt black foil and painting other components including: front grill, mirror covers and the rear diffuser with a black finish.
The 3.0L V6 TDI engine does get beefed up a little to 275hp (205kW) and 442lb-ft (600Nm) of torque from the stock 235hp (175kW) and 370lb-ft (500Nm) of torque. These engine mods, together with the handling upgrades will definitely spark things up a bit and make the car much more fun to drive.
