The world has long awaited the arrival of the Audi RS5 which will be a high performing RS variant of the A5 mid-size executive coupe. The news is that the arrival of Audi RS5 is hopefully around the corner as a brochure with 18 images of the beast has hit the web. The brochure comes laden with some stunning RS5 images but unfortunately, it doesn’t talk about the engine details and the performance specs.
What the brochure does mention are three types of seating and four types of wheel design choices. As far as gear transmission is concerned, the RS5 will only feature the 7-speed dual clutch S-tronic unit as the catalog doesn’t talk about a six-speed option. Slated to debut at the Geneva motor show next month, the high-performing commuters’ engine is still a mystery and it could stage anything from a Supercharged V6 to the 5.2-liter V10 from the R8.
These convincing looking shots of the new 2010 Audi RS5 have leaked onto the Internet a week ahead of the car’s official unveiling at the 2010 Geneva motor show. From what we’re hearing, under the hood the new Audi RS5 has a naturally aspirated 4.2-litre V8 engine that churns out some 450bhp and 332lb ft of torque, which is mated to an automatic S tronic transmission. Expected to be officially unveiled sometime on March 2nd, the 2010 Audi RS5 will be available as a soft-top version at first, with a sportier coupé (pictured) coming up, soon after. As for what this beast will go for, rumors have it that in the UK it will cost you a good £60,000.
Spying up on a 2010 Audi RS5 has to be a real adventure. I mean imagine that you should chase that monster on a highway … Yes, I know, it sounds hard. Due to be launched next year in July, the two-doors sports car has been found doing circles at Nürburgring. And it was wearing a stylish new retractable rear spoiler. With a rumored 4.2-litre V8 engine paired to a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG gearbox, the new RS5 is expected to output a good 450hp (331kW), to feature quattro AWD and a set of two massive oval tailpipes for an amazing “roaring” sound and a tinge of agressiveness. Looks like a winner all the way down, don’t you think? [germancarscene.com via WCF]
It seems that these days the first look that we are getting of the big, fancy cars is when they are still on testing tracks and long way away from release. Coming from Nürburgring, Germany, the spy pictures of the Audi RS5 reveal the small rear spoiler integrated into the boot, wide fenders, two massive oval tailpipes. And big air intakes at the front, pointing towards an engine that needs its fair share of fresh air and apparently is making quite a beautiful sound as it races across the RS5! At this point it looks like the RS5 will be powered by a 4.2-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine which could have an output of around 450hp. The car is scheduled for release in July 2010, so its release could not be too far away. [via WCF]
The new-to-come Audi RS5 has been spotted at Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany. It’s big teaser to all of us waiting to know more and see it running the streets we live in, but except for these pictures where you can see the beautiful quad exhaust pipes we don’t know for sure what the final design will be. I just hope for an angry face that will charm the ladies.
The new Audi RS5 is expected to debut in Detroit in January and a possible “configuration” is a 4.0-liter turbocharged TFSI V8 engine that will develop 450 hp. Want one? -via WCF
