Audi’s Latest A5 Coupe Dressed Up In Virtual RS Guise

Following the official unveil of the all-new A5 and S5 Coupe, Audi will at some point top of the range with the RS5.

Setting it apart from the standard models, on the visual side, will be a beefed up body kit, similar to what X-Tomi did in this latest rendering, comprising of an RS-specific grille, new bumpers and larger side skirts and bigger alloys.

Tweaking the suspension, brakes, steering and electronic limited-slip diff will make the car corner faster than its predecessor and its newly developed twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, which will replace the old 4.2-liter naturally aspirated V8, will position it against the likes of the BMW M4 Coupe and Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.

Its predecessor did the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 4.6 seconds. The power race is definitely on and the new RS5 wiil be faster, although its top speed will probably continue to be electronically capped at 250 km/h (155 mph), at least officially.

Audi will launch the new-gen A5 and S5 Coupe in Europe this fall, so the RS5 will not come out before 2017 at the earliest.

    I cant help but think how cool this car is, and waited for years to see it on this new lighter platform. But at the same time how sad I would feel now owning one because a Tesla on a track is able to easily blow it away speed wise. Seems like Audi should have made this with hybrid power???

      A Tesla is not a track car.

    Soooo boring. They all look same.

    It’s seems right but unlike the TT, the Audi rings are up the grill on the A5, not the hood.

    This should’ve had the inline5 turbo instead of the V6 TT

    I would like to take this opportunity to paraphrase Bob Lutz AND Will Ferrell, “My, you’re an *angry* little toaster!”

  • stelvio

    Audi should fit this with the Inline 5 Turbo instead of the TT V6
