The Audi RS5 features a high-revving 4.2-liter V8 and a seven-speed S tronic transmission with launch control program. The 4.2 liter, naturally aspirated FSI engine delivers 450 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque to propel the RS5 from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds and an electronically-governed top speed of 174 mph.
The 7-speed S tronic® transmission helps ensure rapid and sure shifts while the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system provides exceptional grip and features a crown-gear center differential to send power to the front and rear axle. The crown-gear center differential operates in conjunction with electronic torque vectoring as a perfect complement to the quattro drivetrain. The sport-tuned suspension renders the body 0.8 inches lower than that of the Audi A5.
The RS5 Coupe Sport edition is developed by the Audi performance division, quattro GmbH. A total of 75 units will be produced with a starting MSRP of $87,575. Optional exclusive paint colors are available to suit customer tastes.
