    Audi B8 A5 transformed into 1,000 horsepower drag car by Eklund Racing

    Here is one way to make your A5 fast at the drag strip. This car was built by crazy people in Sweden who seem to do this type of thing with German machinery routinely. Eklund Racing is responsible for the build which is nothing less than impressive. The motor is a 2.5 liter 5 cylinder putting out approximately 1000 horsepower. Some tweaking is still being done and we are not sure what ET they are aiming for. Not much remains from the original car and the curb weight has been dropped considerably so this car should definitely open some some eyes at the strip.

    I just don't get it, why break to pieces a good car just to take its exterior parts when you could add a custom carbon fiber cover at less money and weight ? 98% parts of the original car are gone.

    Because it's ridiculously cool, that's why.

    Also because you can say it is a real A5, which it still is, sort of.
