The RS5's V8 engine develops 450 horsepower
The Audi RS5 is the top-spec version of the A5, sitting above the S5 in the model range. It's taken Audi a few years to develop the car - the S5 has been around for two years now, and the A5 for three - but it's been worth the wait.

The RS5 features a naturally aspirated 4.2 litre V8 with direct injection. This high revving unit produces 450 horsepower @ 8,250 rpm, and 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm. Good enough to allow the RS5 to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds, and up to a 174 top speed. But that's only if you ask Audi to take the limiter off - otherwise you'll top out at 155 mph. The engine is coupled to a 7 speed S-Tronic, double-clutch, semiautomatic gearbox. As usual for a top-of-the-notch-Audi, the RS5 comes with the obligatory quattro AWD system.

For the exterior design there's no unexpected surprises. It gets the same chrome trim elements which are standard on all RS Audi's, beefier wheel arches, a choice of four different wheel designs unique to the model, twin chrome oval tailpipes, and discreet RS5 badging. At the rear the RS5 is fitted with a retractable spoiler mounted on the decklid.

With regard to the suspension setup, the RS 5 chassis exhibits a sporty configuration which sees the ride height lowered by 20 millimeters (0.79 inches) - when compared to the standard Audi A5. The 19-inch alloy wheels fitted with 265/35 tires are standard. They are executed in an exclusive 5-arm structure design. The RS 5 optionally comes with 20-inch wheels and 275/30 tires. Winter wheels featuring the same dimensions are available; the 19-inch wheel is suitable for snow chains... Wait what! Now that would be something to see!

As you'd expect, the RS5's brake system employs powerful and internally ventilated discs, which measure 365 millimeters (14.37 inches) in diameter at the front axle. In order to maximize the dissipation of heat, the steel friction rings are perforated and connected by pins to the aluminum brake discs. The high-gloss black brake calipers bearing RS logos are likewise made of aluminum; the front calipers are fitted with eight pistons each. Audi can optionally fit the front axle with ceramic carbon-fiber brake discs measuring 380 millimeters (14.96 inches) in diameter. They are extremely lightweight, strong, and durable. The electronic stabilization program (ESP) integrates a sport mode and can be switched off entirely.
