Audi RS 5 (8T) Coupe (2010-2017)

Neoscore 76%

Product Overview

Audi RS 5 (chassis code 8T) is the high-performance variant of the A5 mid-size coupe in production from 2010 to 2017. It was powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.2L V8 petrol engine paired to a 7-speed DCT. This is the final application of the 4.2L engine that has powered numerous premium Audi models.
Compared to the standard A5 and the S5, the RS 5 does not significantly stand out. The main difference being its markedly higher output (compared to the S5 with the "same" 4.2 FSI engine).
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi RS 5 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners.
