Audi proudly announced its 2015 RS5 Coupe Sport Edition, a limited edition model of its popular coupe. Developed by Audi performance division, the RS5 Coupe Sport Edition will be priced from $87,575 and if you want one you’d better hurry up as the German company will only offer 75 units.
Each unit will feature 20-inch 5-V-spoke design wheels wrapped in high performance tires, red brake calipers, Crimson Red Fine Nappa leather interior accents and will be available in Daytona Gray pearl effect, Nardo gray and multiple Audi exclusive paint colors as an option.
Other highlights include RS embossed sport seats wrapped in Black and Crimson Red with Crimson Red contrast stitching on the armrests, a flat-bottomed steering wheel wrapped in leather as well as a black shifter boot with Crimson Red contrast stitching.
In addition, the doors inserts and body-color inlays feature Crimson Red Fine Nappa leather. Under the hood, there is a high-revving 4.2-liter V8 engine that produces 450 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque.
Bolted to a 7-speed S tronic transmission that delivers the power through the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, the RS5 is able to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, while top speed is limited at 174 mph or 280 km/h.
In terms of exterior aesthetics, the Audi RS5 Coupe is provided with an expressive yet long front end, a characteristic rear end, precise lines, taut surfaces and a muscular road stance. Featuring a wide and low body, the RS5 Coupe comes with C-pillars flowing harmoniously into the dynamically arched shoulder line.
When viewed from the front, the Audi RS5 Coupe boasts of a flatter and wider appearance, thanks to its sharper design. Its single-frame grille feature beveled top corners as well as a honeycomb grid finished in high-gloss anthracite gray with the RS5 badge.
The grille frame comes with a matt aluminum-look finish. Its contoured bonnet features sharper edges while large air inlets come with deeply sculpted edges. Divided by struts, these inlets are covered with honeycomb grilles. The bumper of the RS5 Coupe bumper tapers downward into a splitter.
The front end of the new Audi RS5 Coupe is also defined by the wedge-shaped headlights featuring wave-shaped bottom edge. As standard, these headlights employ Xenon plus headlights as complemented by LED daytime running lights. These energy-efficient DRLs encircle the Xenon plus headlights and turn signals as a narrow clasp. The adaptive light system with dynamic cornering light and turning light is also available for the RS5 Coupe.
Audi provided the new RS5 Coupe with flared front and rear fenders as well as harsh edges -- above the wheel wells – that pays tribute to the 1980 Ur-quattro. The trim strips around the windows as well as the side mirror housings feature a matt aluminum-look finish. The new RS5 Coupe also sports side sills with muscular caps.
The new Audi RS5 Coupe can be finished in any of the eight available colors: one solid finish, two crystal-effect finishes and five metallic or pearl-effect finishes. These colors include Daytona Gray, Ibis White, Misano Red, Panther Black, Phantom Black, Prism Silver, Sepang Blue, Silver and Suzuka Gray.
Customers may also avail of the two new styling packages, one of which includes bolt-on parts in black, while the other comes with matt aluminum-look accents. A carbon design package is also available for the engine compartment.
