Senner Tuning's Audi S5 "White Beast"

. Friday, March 26, 2010

Senner Tuning has revealed their newly tuned Audi S5 today. Named "White Beast," the latest Senner Audi S5 features various aerodynamic improvements, a bump in horsepower and torque, suspension and wheel upgrades and curiously cool "Hot Wheels" decals. Full details and photo gallery after the jump.

The "White Beast" features a host of aerodynamic upgrades, most notably the larger RS5 style front air inlets, splitter and grille. In addition to the car's facial cosmetic pleasantries, Senner also adds a rear spoiler and Rieger Carbon-Look rear apron to round out the aesthetic improvements.

Under the hood, the new Senner S5's 4.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 boasts a fairly noticeable bump in horsepower from a stock 349 bhp to a more impressive 378 bhp. Torque also gets a nudge to 350 lb/ft. The power and torque boost comes thanks to a performance air filter, "plug-in package" and performance exhaust system. To top off the car's performance upgrades, Senner has raised the S5's speed limitation from 255 km/h to 285 km/h (177 mph).

The "White Beast's" suspension is lowered 40mm at the front and 35mm at the rear. Featuring custom 9 x 21" (front) and 10.5 x 21" (rear) Work Varianza T1S, polished light alloy, diamond black wheels wrapped in Hankook S1 Evo rubber. More details can be found in the press release following the photo gallery.

Now, time for the eye-candy.

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!
