Audi RS5

Brand New Audi RS5 ReleasedFollowing on from the A5 Coupe, Cabriolet and Sportback, the great Audi RS5 has been revitalised for 2012.

Despite introducing an electromechanical power-steering system reducing CO2 emissions to 246g/km being introduced, the original 444bhp 4.2-litre V8 engine remains the same.

In the default setup, the Audi RS5 feels very lightweight, but this can be altered with the Audi Drive Select system, while Dynamic Steering is also available as an addition. This gives you control to amend the vehicle for sharper responses.

Again, the quattro four-wheel drive has a set 40:60 front and rear power divide, although 70 percent can be sent to the front and 85 percent towards the back. This assists the agility of the Audi RS5 and even on ice the vehicle maintains fantastic front-to-rear grip balance. An optional sport diff is available to improve the chassis even further.

The Audi RS5 has a rapid 0-62mph time of only 4.5 seconds and is capable of speeds up to 174 mph if you choose to remove the speed limiter.

As for the design, on the inside, a clear Audi MMI system and flat bottomed steering wheel have been introduced. Cruise control and bluetooth are now included on all standard models. On the outside, brand new stylish headlights and bumpers, sharper bonnet lines and revised alloys are all incorporated. Although these revisions are subtle, the top-of-the-range RS5 didn't need much modification.
