(continued from above)

With an overall length of 182.1 inches, the 2011 Audi S5 Coupe 4.2 FSI affords both drivers and passengers unmatched interior space, even in the back seats. Extensive use of high-quality materials and a bevy of high-tech driving aids and convenience options continue to make the 2011 S5 Coupe 4.2 FSI a benchmark of the class. A firm commitment to innovative technologies has enabled a refined suspension built on a lifetime of racing experience to deliver a ride that manages to be both comfortable and capable, offering up the world class handling and razor-sharp response buyers have come to demand from their sporty Audi cars.

Audi S5's Design

Arguably the definitive Audi design of recent years, the Audi S5 Coupe presents a low and muscular physique, with an extended roofline and sharply carved contours guiding the eye along its sleek shape. Capitalizing on the styling elements that define a sports coupe, the S5 Coupe 4.2 FSI exudes performance and elegance with a tall shoulder line and steeply raked windshield.

The instantly identifiable Audi Singleframe grille dominates the front of the car, while available purposeful LED taillights illuminate the rear.

Specifically Tailored Interior for Sporty Comfort

The 2011 Audi S5 Coupe 4.2 FSI boasts an ergonomic interior designed around driver and passenger comfort with additions that enhance the feeling of performance. Audi has taken an even greater focus on attractive shapes and precision workmanship to create a space as gorgeous as it is functional. With high-quality leather and rich materials assembled together to the strictest tolerances, it is obvious immediately that there has been no cost spared in interior luxury.

Comfortable sports seats provide ample support, and a driver-oriented center console hosts an exquisitely designed interface, as well as Audi's industry benchmark third-generation MMI system. If optioned, the seven-inch MMI screen is located high on the dashboard to facilitate reading and minimize the amount of time spent looking away from the road. The driver also is treated to a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and brilliant, easy-to-read gauges.

Powerful 4.2-Liter V8 Engine

Buyers seeking prodigious performance and power from their Audi coupes need look no further than the Audi S5 Coupe. The S5 Coupe boasts a powerful V8 engine, dubbed the 4.2 FSI. This all-aluminum 4.2-liter engine provides 354 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Also featuring FSI direct injection, the S5 is capable of an exhilarating 4.9-second rush from 0-60 mph, with the stout V8 providing an immediate swell of power the moment the gas pedal is depressed. When mated to the Tiptronic automatic transmission, the 4.2 FSI offers buyers 16/24 mpg (city/hwy).

Drivetrain Options

The 2011 Audi S5 Coupe 4.2 FSI is available with either a six-speed manual or a Tiptronic six-speed automatic transmission. Both options afford buyers the choice of capable, smooth and sporty gearboxes befitting Audi's dedication to performance.

Also available on the 2011 Audi S5 Coupe is quattro with Sport rear differential, which gives the Audi S5 a new level of road holding ability by actively controlling the distribution of torque between the two rear wheels, effectively overdriving the outside wheel in corners. This "forces" the front end of the vehicle into the corner to eliminate understeer and create more surefooted excitement for the driver. In addition, the Sport rear differential works with ESP during accident avoidance maneuvers to keep the S5 stable and composed in emergencies.
