It takes a discerning eye to spot an Audi RS 5 in the wild, but not necessarily a discerning ear: its high-revving V8 gives this all-new sports coupe a sound and character like nothing else. To complement the engine's vigor, the engineers at Audi gave the RS 5 upgraded suspension and brakes, along with quattro® all-wheel drive in its most potent form yet. Combined with its luxurious interior, high technology quotient, and all-weather capability**, the RS 5 makes other performance coupes seem one-dimensional.
Because a machine with such refined, ferocious performance deserves a body to match, the Audi RS 5 gets the royal treatment. Adaptive xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, widened fenders, and a silver diamond mesh Singleframe® grille create a sophisticated, toned, muscular body. Its 19-inch ten-spoke forged wheels enhance the side profile, and massive oval tailpipes blast the glorious V8 soundtrack to other motorists as you pass them by. As you crest 75 mph, a rear spoiler deploys automatically to maintain high-speed stability.*
The cabin in the RS 5 is the result of taking the best in materials and technology, then laying it all out with the elegance inherent to the Audi approach. Because the RS 5 means business, a monochrome color scheme extends from floor to ceiling, while red instruments and LEDs hint at its underlying passion. Exclusive RS 5 carbon inlays highlight the center console and doors, with Nappa leather enveloping the twelve-way sport front seats.
