2013 Audi RS5 [w/video]

Enjoying The Romance, Not Yet Convinced About A Commitment I imagine spending time with a sexy sports coupe is similar to a first date with a supermodel. Before she arrives, there's a buildup of excitement mixed with nervous anticipation. Even though the background work is done, there are many concerns and unanswered questions about how the two of you will get along. What about compatibility, engagement and dynamics? The big day arrives, and you answer the door to find her waiting in the driveway wearing a form-fitting Misano Red Pearl dress and sleek Anthracite stilettos. As you... Read More

    Official: Audi celebrates diesel milestone with triple-charged RS5 TDI concept
    1401400740

    Diesels are typically slower than their gasoline counterparts, but leave it to Audi to turn that notion on its head. After dominating Le Mans and the international endurance racing scene under diesel power for the better part of a decade, the German automaker toyed with the idea of an oil-burning R8 for the road and ultimately made its first performance ...

    Motorsports: Audi reveals revised RS5 DTM for 2014
    1394633760

    There existed an era in German touring car racing between when the DTM series was revived in 2000 and when BMW rejoined in 2012. During that twelve-season span, the wins were pretty evenly divided between Audi and Mercedes-Benz, the only two manufacturers who took part. Audi won six drivers' titles in that time and Mercedes won six (although Benz won ...

    Paris: Audi RS5 Cabriolet debuts in Paris, confirmed for U.S. in Q1 2013

    We would never kick a 450-horsepower convertible out of bed, especially one as pretty as the 2013 Audi RS5 Cabriolet. We'll admit, the chrome wheels aren't really doing it for us – we much prefer the standard alloys – but nevertheless, there's a lot to like about this topless Audi. Most importantly, the RS5 Cabriolet still uses Audi's ...

    A month after paperwork for the RS5 Cabriolet was delivered into the California Air Resources Board for certification, the genuine item is being driven around the Nürburgring for a different kind of sign-off. The folks at CarPix caught the 450-horsepower Audi droptop at the German landmark. When it's not being wrung out, we figure the cabriolet is ...

    Geneva 2010: Audi RS5 is a 450-horsepower two-door tease
    1267547340

    The one thing on our minds as Audi unveiled the RS5 here in Geneva is whether or not the car will come to the United States. We can't get a definitive answer from the German automaker, and although we're guessing the chances are fairly slim, we were told not to completely rule it out. Audi has listed the base price of the car only in Euros (77,000), but ...

    Over the weekend, we got our first look at official images of the new Audi RS5 when a brochure leaked out onto the interwebs, but it didn't contain any technical details of the latest product from Quattro GmbH.

    The next über-model from Audi's Quattro GmbH division won't officially debut in Geneva for another week, but images from its brochure have already made their way onto the web. The Audi RS5 coupe will no doubt take the performance of Audi's B8 platform to levels beyond the much-loved and departed RS4. What we don't know at this point is how high that ...

We knew the S5 was part of the package, but since the newest Audi had two doors, cabrio conjecture wasn't far behind.
