Audi's 5-door performance coupe claims to be the benchmark in a segment with no competitors, and ahead of Benz and BMW launching their interpretations, the RS5 actually is in a class of its own. The latest RS5 gets 155 MPH (limited due to German regulations) performance thanks to its 444 HP/443 lb-ft 2.9 litre TFSI V8 biturbo motor, with 60 MPH coming in under 4 seconds. Paired with the signature Audi Quattro AWD, the RS5 promises blistering performance to match its over-the-top looks and paint.
With relatively low-displacement, one would hope at least one makes it to our shores via Progress Motors Imports Ltd, but the reality is the MSRP for the new RS5 might be prohibitively high for our market. So no poisonous green sportbacks for us yet.
