Audi to unleash Q5 custom concept at GTI Meet

Audi Q5 concept fq

Every year, Europe’s Volkswagen and Audi hardcore fans head to Wörthersee, Austria for the annual GTI Meet, a huge annual gathering of the brands’ faithful. Over the past few years, the Wörthersee Tour has been home to the unveilings of several concept cars, like the ridiculous 650-horsepower VW Golf GTI W12. For this year’s meeting, Audi has unveiled the Q5 Custom Concept — a dressed up version of the new compact CUV.

In addition to the obvious cosmetic changes designed to display Audi’s range of factory accessories, the crossover packs a serious whack under it’s bonnet, where a 408-horsepower version of the new, supercharged 3.0 TFSI six-cylinder resides. The Q5 concept is apparently good for a zero-to-100 sprint of just 4.4 seconds, and won’t stop till a governed top-speed of 250 kph. Other mods to the show car include Spendy ceramic brakes, active sound exhaust system, a modified air intake, cooling water strut brace in engine compartment and 21-inch rims.

At the show the Audi stand will also be home to many other Audis from throughout the marque’s history, including examples as varied as the legendary Ur-Quattro and the much more recent A1 Sportback concept.
