Matte Grey Audi RS5 Is A Smooth Criminal

The new Audi RS5 may not be as well-rounded as the Mercedes-AMG C63 S, but it does have stellar looks, particularly compared to the relatively benign C63 and M3.

So, when an RS5 owner in the U.S. decided to equip the car with a set of Forgiato Wheels, the results were always going to be eye-catching.

The aftermarket wheel manufacturer fitted the sports coupe with a set of lightweight Tec 2.5 wheels, complete with matte black spokes and candy apple red inners. Working in conjunction with the matte grey paint of the car, the wheels help to create one of the most eye-catching RS5s you’re every likely to come across.

As a reminder, the new 2017 Audi RS5 is powered by a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 delivering 444 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) as standard or 174 mph (280 km/h) with the optional RS dynamic package.

    A lesson in how to make a super dull looking “sports car” look even more boring with matte paint but just tacky enough to be ready for the next fast and furious by lowering and it giving it ugly wheels. Assuming the writer is an Audi fan boy the A5 2 door in any form looks dull and boring it has a sedan roofline and a front end that doesn’t match the rest of the body it just doesnt look good .The S5 sportback looks nice and oddly sportier than the 2 door
