Finnentrop, Germany. For Eibach, 2018 will be coloured in red. Misanred with a pearl effect, to be precise.

This is the shade of the new project car by the chassis tuning expert from Finnentrop, who will present itself with an Audi RS5 Coupé from now on. The second generation of the powerful Audi A5 family member will set hearts of sports car drivers racing. Equipped with a 2.9-liter V6 engine, the four-wheel drive vehicle mobilises 450 horses and sprints from 0 to 100 kph in 3.9 seconds. Eibach and its project partners Race Chip, Remus, BBS, Castrol, Hankook and Black Falcon packed even more performance into the powerful car.

The Eibach Pro-Kit Performance springs lower the suspension setting by 15 mm in the front and 15mm at the rear axle, improving handling and allowing a true racing sensation. In addition, the RS5 is equipped with Eibach Pro-Spacer Wheel Spacers that add to the impressive looks of the sporty Coupe.

Even more power under the hood and a substantial extra in performance comes from RaceChip and their chip and throttle tuning. Both products can be controlled via a smartphone and make the individual adaptation of the vehicle to any driving situation very easy. „The project car with its 2.9 TFSI engine gave us an opportunity to develop our RaceChip further. Our XLR throttle tuning is the ideal addition because it communicates accurately with the Audi RS5`s SENT signals.

The plus in performance and increase in torque through chip tuning in combination with the direct throttle response through the gas pedal tuning elevate the power of this vehicle to a whole new and very sporty level. „, says Dirk Bongardt, Managing Director and COO of RaceChip.

Top performance, a refined sound and impressive looks are guaranteed through the Cat Back stainless steel exhaust system by global market leader Remus. Developed specifically for the new project car of Eibach, the sport exhaust enables an optimised gas routing thanks to the integrated throttle and increases torque in the medium rpm ranges.

Pemium wheel manufacturer BBS equipped the RS5 Coupe with the CH-R Nürburgring Edition of its Performance Line. Thanks to Flow Forming and grooved spokes, the wheel weighs only around 12.2 kg and is unique due to its red bumper buffer device and the red laser writing „Nürburgring Edition“. The CH-R Nürburgring Edition combines technical refinement of lightweight construction and driving dynamics with the special motorsport feeling for the street.

This is complemented by the tyres of Hankook: A special 20 Zoll version of the Flagship product Hankook S1 Evo² in the dimension 275/30R20Y allows for the ideal grip in all circumstances and every dynamic driving demand.  

The new project car was first presented to a small group of clients at the ADAC Masters races at the Nürburgring. From autumn onwards, Eibach fans will get to see the Audi RS5 Coupe regularly at trade shows and events of Eibach and its project partners.

„The Audi RS5 Coupe marks the start of a new era for us We look forward to an exciting time with the new project car“, says Stephan Stöcker, motorsport manager of Eibach.
