It’s been a while since we last spent some time with the sharpest iteration of Audi’s A5 sports coupe. As such, we thought we’d reacquaint ourselves with the RS5, see how things have progressed in the interim, and get a better sense of what it’s like to live with it in the real world.
Much like it did with the old RS4, Audi has followed up its RS5 Coupe with an RS5 Cabriolet.
Audi’s potent 2013 RS5 whose details were recently divulged, should be heading to our shores this coming summer according to a recent report on Inside Line.
The Audi RS5 coupe really has everything going for it if we stare it down while it’s sitting still or if we study the spec sheet. How can you go wrong, after all, with a 444-horsepower, latest-generation, 4.2-liter FSI V-8 with all that power maxing out at the 8250-rpm redline? The torque comes out to assist nicely, too, at 317 maximum pound-feet between 4000 and 6000 rpm.
