Audi has revealed the redesigned two-door RS 5 Coupé, which now has an even sharper shape and a more commanding performance. It is equipped with a 4.2 FSI V8 engine, which generates 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm. The 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) peak torque is available within a range from 4,000 rpm to 6,000 rpm.
The high-performance coupe, equipped with the normally aspirated, high-revving V8, accelerates to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) from a standstill in 4.5 seconds. The engine uses an average of 10.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (22.40 US mpg), which is far less compared to its main rivals.
The new Audi RS 5 Coupé has an even more muscular and athletic road stance with the hood having a more sculpted appearance with sharper edges and the upper corners of the single-frame grille beveled. The most prominent features at the front part of the automobile are the new headlights in wedge form that uses xenon plus technology and comes with narrow LED strips for the daytime running lights. Audi has also redesigned the rear bumper and the taillights. The interior has also been updated. Among the redesigned features are the leather-wrapped RS 5 multifunction sport steering wheel with the ring flattened at the bottom, the ignition key, redesigned controls, the steering column stalks and the buttons for Audi drive select and the knob of the gear selector lever. The MMI navigation plus comes as an option. The vehicle's interior is a study in black with carbon as standard inlays, with aluminum, piano finish or stainless steel mesh available as options.
