Audi AG (Public, ETR:NSU) saw the changes of its RS5 appearing on the internet even before its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The changes begin with restyled headlamps, new daytime running lamps and a revised lower fascia. The vehicle still has its 450-horsepower, 4.2-liter V8 engine that revs to over 8,000 rpm and the Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The powerful Audi RS5 can go from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds.

The Audi RS5 Coupé is the top of the line for the A5 series. The car offers more than just amazing handling and power, but has a body that is extremely pleasing to the eye as well as classically elegant and luxurious interior.

Other new developments to the Audi RS5 are the sharp accents to the car. There are many different features to the vehicle that characterize the other A5 models, but on the Audi RS5, they shine brighter.

The Audi RS 5 Coupé was hand-built at the auto manufacturing plant in Györ, Hungary. The vehicle, with is V8 engine, can reach speeds from 155.34 up to 173.98 mph. What makes this possible is the combination of the Audi modular efficiency platform. The high-tech V8 engine is known to consume far less fuel on average than its direct rivals, which makes it less necessary fill-ups at the gas station as often than one would have to if driving the Audi’s competitors. High efficiency and long top gear adds to its good fuel economy. Good for the pocket book and good for the environment.

The RS 5 Coupé has quattro permanent all-wheel drive which is compact and lightweight. The vehicle ensures sporty handling. The car also has fast and precise turn-in, high cornering speeds and supreme stability which is great for Audi enthusiasts who enjoy highly precise road feel. The driver of the RS 5 is supported with slight steering corrections when braking on surfaces with different amounts of grip and the power steering helps to enhance efficiency.

Audi RS 5 Coupé sports newly designed, 19-inch forged aluminum wheels with 265/35-series tires, which are standard. However, as an option, customers can request 20-inch wheels with 275/30-series tires for the high-performance coupe.
