Audi Exclusive Releases 2015 RS 5 Coupe Sport Edition
Today is the day of exclusive editions. Since we just saw the new Shelby, now it is time for Audi to show-off with something and this is the 2015 Audi RS 5 Coupe Sport Edition. This model will be strictly limited to production 75 units and will feature some exclusive elements such as the 20'' 5-V-spoke design wheels behind which we see red brake calipers. The Audi comes with distinctive sports styling with "athletic" design elements featured in- and outside.
The vehicle is available in two exterior colors: Daytona Gray pearl effect and Nardo gray. They are complemented by Crimson Red Fine Nappa leather interior accents. Other features in the cabin include RS embossed sport seats in Black and Crimson Red with Crimson Red contrast stitching featured on the armrests, leather-wrapped steering wheel and black shifter boot with the same stitching again and Crimson Red Fine Nappa leather door inserts and body-color inlays.
Audi is driven by the 4.2-liter V8 engine which produces 450 horsepower (331 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. It is coupled with a seven-speed S tronic transmission with launch control program. All this power is capable of propelling the RS 5 from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds. The top speed is limited at 174 mph.
The aforementioned transmission helps ensure rapid and sure shifts. At the same time the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system is what ensures the great grip. It includes a crown-gear center differential to send power to the front and rear axle. The added sport-tuned suspension brings the body 0.8 inches to the ground.
2015 Audi RS 5 Coupe Sport Edition has a starting price of $87,575 USD.
