Another report from the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show as we spotted that the Audi RS5 has new look. The coupe sedan has gone some facelifted program to be able to strike a pose at the event. You might know that the Audi A5 is just regular coupe and can be considered to be the best looking cars which carry the Quattro all-wheel drive. But, the German automaker thought that it is time to give the Audi A5 new look. The Audi RS5 coupe sedan is now has more angular grille and different headlights.
The German automaker decided to give the Audi RS5 not only cosmetic make-over, but also giving new boost for the coupe sedan. Okay, time to see what Audi has done with the new RS5, shall we? The biggest make-over we spotted on the Audi RS5 coupe sedan is the bevels on the top of the grille, wavy headlights – signature of Audi, don’t you think? – and sharp-looking new hood.
The Audi RS5 coupe sedan offers to roll on 19-inch forged aluminum wheels with 265/35 tires or the optional 20-inch wheels with 275/30 tires.
The interior of the Audi RS5 coupe sedan equips with new steering wheel with a flatter bottom, new stalks, and a different shifter knob. Judging by the interior photo, we think that the inside of Audi RS5 coupe sedan carries sportier and more vigorous style.
We’re done with the cosmetic parts, and it means that we are ready for some figures here. The Audi RS5 coupe sedan is powered by the same-old 4.2L naturally-aspirated V8. That is a bit disappointing, right? Anyway, that particular V8 is able to give power output around 450 horsepower at 8,250rpm and the torque reaches at 430Nm (317.15 lb-ft). To complete the performance, the 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system are mounted under the hood of Audi RS5 coupe sedan.
