Audi A5 B8 – How we achieved 70% power and 56% torque gains with 20% better fuel economy!

We can probably all agree that the Audi A5 B8 platform is already a pretty nice vehicle straight from the factory, right?

However, while the standard performance figures are quite acceptable for most owners, here at Viridian Performance we can greatly improve them, quickly, easily and economically!

Take a look at this mechanically standard Audi A5 Sportback. We installed a custom RD Technik ECU and transmission tune to bring this car to life.

Using our customised tuning capabilities we were able to enhance the car well beyond the OEM Quattro model figures of 155kw/350nm!

Plus, the new 0 – 100 time was achieved without launch control and on old tyres which caused wheel spin through the 30km/h to 70km/h range. It’s like a completely different car in sport or manual mode, and the simulated gear shifts are now incredibly fast and smooth!

Understandably, the owner absolutely loves the car now and can’t get enough of the power and fuel economy!
