Audi Exclusive releases RS 5 Coupe Sport limited edition for 2015


Audi's A5 models are lookers, and have been since their introduction years ago. The classically styled sport coupe's design was so "right on the money," that few changes have been made...period. For 2015, Audi's Exclusive group has put together a special, limited-edition model that comes with just about everything, the RS 5 Coupe Sport (the rear end shot below is a regular A5). Being an RS performance model, the RS 5 Coupe Sport comes with the 4.2-liter V8 (450 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque), a seven-speed S tronic transmission with launch control program, special suspension tuning, special 20-inch V spoke wheels with red brake calipers, quattro all-wheel drive, RS Sports seats in black with Crimson Red accents, Nappa leather interior, and more. The RS 5 Coupe Sport is available in Daytona Gray pearl effect or Nardo gray paint with multiple Audi exclusive paint colors available optionally. The best of everything doesn't come cheaply, though. The '15 RS 5 Coupe Sport will start at $87,575 plus taxes, license, fees, destination and options. If the RS 5 Coupe Sport looks like your ideal car, get to your local Audi dealer ASAP, since only 75 units will be built for the US market. More info after the jump...

The 2015 RS 5 Coupe Sport edition features distinctive and sporty design elements on the interior and exterior. The vehicle’s already compelling RS-specific performance design is accentuated with 20’’ 5-V-spoke design wheels and red brake calipers, and is available in Daytona Gray pearl effect, Nardo gray and multiple Audi exclusive paint colors (optional) that are complemented by Crimson Red Fine Nappa leather interior accents.

The Audi RS 5 features a high-revving 4.2-liter V8 and a seven-speed S tronic transmission with launch control program. The 4.2 liter, naturally aspirated FSI engine delivers 450 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque to propel the RS 5 from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds and an electronically-governed top speed of 174 mph.

The 7-speed S tronic® transmission helps ensure rapid and sure shifts while the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system provides exceptional grip and features a crown-gear center differential to send power to the front and rear axle. The crown-gear center differential operates in conjunction with electronic torque vectoring as a perfect complement to the quattro drivetrain. The sport-tuned suspension renders the body 0.8 inches lower than that of the Audi A5.

The RS 5 Coupe Sport edition is developed by the Audi performance division, quattro GmbH. A total of 75 units will be produced with a starting MSRP of $87,575. Optional exclusive paint colors are available to suit customer tastes.
