Suzuka Grey RS5 – Audi Got It Right!

Aug 17

Power will come from a naturally aspirated 4.2-liter V8 that produces 331 kW (444 hp / 450 PS) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. I was really hoping for a down tuned V10 TFSI or V8 TFSI, but if they put that powerful engine in the Audi RS5 then it will be too expensive and will step into R8 territory. The good news is that the 4.2 V8 will produce 450Ps and that is 30ps more than the current BMW M3 which the RS5 is aiming at.

RS5 customers will get a seven-speed S tronic DSG 7-speed transmission which allows the 1,725 kilogram (3,803 pound) coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h(0-62mph) in 4.6 seconds, before topping out at an electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph). Audi can even remove the limiter if you pay extra.But despite the enormous power; Audi says that the RS5 will consume 10.8 liters of petrol per 100 km (21.78 US mpg).

The aim of the car wasn’t the M3. It seems the aim of the car was to just have it built. The engine bay is too small for the TT V10. The timeframe was too short to incorporate the newly developed 4.0T.

It seems the aim of the RS5 is to be a Grand Tourer and not a track focused car like the M3 is. Anyone that has an M3 can have fun driving in the snow without the Quattro the RS5 has. I would take the RS5 over the M3 any day.
Do you have any idea when the RS5 is coming to North America? Audi said it was next year then all the sudden its 2012/2013.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
