If you're looking to rediscover your passion for motoring, look no further than the new Audi RS5, available today from Lookers Audi.
A feast for the eyes, the muscular structure of the Audi RS5 features a range of innovative details. A single-frame grille in high-gloss anthracite and symmetrical air intakes frame the front, with flared wheel arches and contrasting matt aluminium-look wing mirrors decorating the sides. At the rear, dual oval tailpipes create an almighty roar, and the extending spoiler offers an eye-catching, yet aerodynamic edge.
The interior continues to build upon the athletic theme, with front super sport seats in Fine Nappa leather and grey piping providing the main attraction – or, for that seriously sporty feel, optional RS 5 bucket seats offer a low position for maximising your racing experience. Deceptively spacious, the interior offers an abundance of head and legroom, as well as a range of technology. 14 Bang & Olufsen speakers stream music from either the DAB Digital Radio or the Audi Music Interface, and satellite navigation comes courtesy of the voice-activated HDD navigation system, which includes live traffic updates.
At the heart of this modern roadster lies a powerful 4.2-litre V8 FSI quattro engine, capable of delivering 450PS and torque of up to 430Nm. Coupled with a seven-speed S tronic gearbox and Audi's signature quattro technology, the smoothly transitioning gear shifts and adaptive power distribution allow for huge bursts of speed. Plus, thanks to the inclusion of Dynamic Ride Control, a new sport differential and Audi drive select, the RS5 remains tightly under your control even at high speeds.
The RS5 is as much a masterpiece in safety, featuring Audi's electronic stability programme to reduce the risk of an accident. In case the RS5 takes a knock, groundbreaking features such as the Audi Backguard head restraints, adaptive airbags, and ISOFIX child seat mountings all serve to minimise the risk of injury.
