There’s nothing quite like getting behind the wheel of a breathtaking new coupe designed to deliver the very best in performance.

If there’s one word to best describe the exterior appearance of the new RS5 Coupe, it’s muscular. This is a vehicle that knows it’s athletic and isn’t afraid to demonstrate so. Low slung and with big alloy wheels, this model exudes confidence, with the effortlessly refined body all flowing lines and careful contours. Plus, with twin oval exhausts letting the engine truly roar, it has the ability to excite in all manner of ways.
Stepping inside the new Audi RS5 Coupe reveals the model for what it truly is: a supremely crafted and premium quality vehicle. Every inch of the interior has been carefully considered, with such luxurious materials as Fine Nappa leather with diamond stitching enabling you to sink back in complete comfort. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit - with special RS displays - provides all the critical information you need, while the rotary dial set between the front seats lets you control the infotainment measures on the Audi MMI system.
One listen to the howl of the new V6 engine, and it’ll come as no surprise to learn that this has been developed alongside Porsche for the ultimate in performance. Replacing the former 4.2-litre V8 with a 2.9-litre turbocharged V6 may seem like a step backwards, but with quattro four-wheel drive and a slick automatic gearbox, racing from a standstill to 62mph can be achieved in a little as 3.9 seconds. Throw in a body weight that is 60kg lighter than before, and you’d be hard pressed to identify any loss of performance in comparison.
A selection of standard safety features will provide peace of mind when on the road. Audi Side Assist, for example, monitors areas behind your vehicle during lane changes, informing you should any vehicles be appearing in your blind spot. Hill hold assist, cruise control, and Parking System Plus - which uses ultrasonic sensors to help guide you into your chosen space - are also standard measures, while optional features as a head-up display and rear-view camera can also be added.
Cutting edge technology isn’t reserved for safety. In fact, the RS5 Coupe offers plenty of infotainment measures to support your drive. In addition to the Audi Virtual Cockpit, you can benefit from MMI Navigation Plus with MMI touch and access your music and satellite navigation systems on the 8.3-inch colour touchscreen, while the Audi Smartphone Interface lets you control your smartphone’s apps and communication functions safely and easily.
