Few cars at any price point have the street presence of the Audi A5. But even in higher-spec S5 trim, the Audi coupe lacks a certain oomph. The German automaker is out to fix that, however, with the tantalizing new RS5.
The super-coupe packs a 4.2-liter V8 engine worth 450 horsepower, driving through an electronic differential and dual-clutch transmission to all four wheels for a 0-60 sprint in 4.6 seconds. The styling of the svelte coupe carries over, only enhanced by some extra sporty trim, bigger wheels and the like. The new RS5 will make its official debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned. Unfortunately there's no word yet on plans to bring the RS5 to North America, but European pricing will start at €77,000, or about $104,000.
