Those waiting for a high performance variant of the sexy A5 will have to wait no more. The RS5 is set to make its debut at the Geneva Motorshow in about 2 weeks' time but images from its brochure have already made their way onto the web.
Information from the brochure reveals three types of seating and four wheel design choices. Audi's 7-speed dual clutch S-tronic transmission seems to be the only choice available as there was no mention of a manual option. Availability of a flat-bottom steering wheel is also not stated in the brochure.
The RS5 Coupe makes use of a revised version of the firm's 4.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine found in the previous RS4 and the current R8 Coupe. In the RS5, the tweaked V8 engine delivers a maximum output of 450 hp at 8,250 rpm and 430Nm of peak torque between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. This helps to propel the coupe from 0 to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds and achieving an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
