Audi Confirms RS5 Coupe For U.S., Coming In 2012

November 10th, 2009

Get ready for a rough sort Audi awesomeness, America. Audi RS5 Coupe has just confirmed for your driving pleasure. The only bad news: it will not until 2012. In the meantime, you can use your free cash with the net-priced $ 161,000 R8 quattro Spyder 5.2.

Powered by an up-rated version of the 4.2-liter V-8 found in the regular R8, the front-engine coupe cranks 450 horsepower to all four wheels while better than almost anything with two doors. OK, so that a strong statement, but there is no denying the S5/RS5 ‘s looking good. It touches our shores in 2012 – but Audi has not said when, in 2012. Let’s hope early in the year.

A seven-speed dual clutch S tronic provides cog-swap functions, and a new center differential in the standard quattro all-wheel drive system delivers power to the ground. All-in, the 3803-pound RS5 shoots 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of barrels reach 174 mph. In other words, it is about the same as the M3 coupe, but a bit stronger.

Fuel economy is surprisingly good, as quite often with V-8-powered sports cars, scoring 21.8 mpg in combined European average. This is a solid brand for a car delivering this balance between performance and luxury.
