2012 Audi RS 5 Coupe

2012 Audi RS 5 Coupe

The RS 5 Coupe is a classically elegant coupe with a breathtakingly powerful engine. The high-revving 4.2-liter V8 pumps out a hefty 450 hp, yet uses fuel extremely efficiently. Like all of the high- performance models from Audi, the RS 5 Coupe delivers its power to the road via all four wheels. A new evolutionary stage of quattro permanent all- wheel drive is also debuting on this car. (continued below)

Audi RS 5 Coupe: Classic Elegance and Awesome Power

Source: Audi | Published: Tue Aug 24, 2010

(continued from above)

The Audi RS 5 Coupe has an athletic and muscular road stance. Its flowing silhouette, striking lines, accentuated surfaces, expressive front end and distinctive tail end make it a sculpture in motion. The broad, low body with the long front end, short front overhang and elongated transition from the C-pillar to the tail end define the proportions of classic elegance.

With the RS 5 Coupe, a number of special design details set distinctive accents. The single-frame grille bears a shiny anthracite-gray rhombus-pattern grid with an RS 5 badge. The grille's frame sports a matt aluminum-look finish. Xenon plus headlights are standard; their sickle-shaped daytime running light strips of seven LEDs each in conjunction with the "wings," the wave-like shapes in the headlight housing, are a characteristic feature of the Audi design.

The bumper has been redesigned and now features a splitter edge at the bottom like on a race car. The air flows through large openings adorned with crossbars and black rhombus-pattern grids, and framed by three-dimensional, protruding edges. Two supplemental coolers support the main radiator.

The high-performance coupe requires cooling air and water for the engine, for the power steering fluid and for the hydraulics of the seven-speed S tronic transmission. Its oil cooler is integrated into the radiator loop.

The front and rear fenders are distinctly flared; the side panels have been completely redesigned for the RS 5 Coupe. The sharp edges over the wheel wells are reminiscent of a classic Audi - that all-wheel drive pioneer from 1980, the Audi quattro, had similar "blisters." The sills sport chiseled caps. The trim strips and the side mirror housings, which are fitted with LED turn signals, have a matt aluminum-look finish.
