The RS 5 is Audi’s meanest sports coupe. It now comes with a 2.9-liter V6 that generates 444 horsepower. This is 6 horses less than the previous V8 engine. However, the torque numbers have risen drastically to 443 pound-feet of torque. The output is channeled through an 8-speed automatic transmission affixed to the automaker’s rear-based Quattro AWD system.

There’s little in its handling that would get a first-time driver nervous. The handling is dutiful, and the car behaves well in both wet and dry conditions. The steering is responsive and precise. Despite it being more natural and predictable, it delivers tiny ground action to the driver. The standard torque-vectoring differential and Quattro AWD system work hand-in-hand to provide a smooth ride. Drivers can feel the car as it shifts its torque backwards to deliver more thrust. The usual split is 60% rear and 40% front. These numbers change significantly when there’s slip. The understeer is more balanced in the new model.

The RS 5 comes with an optional Dynamic Plus Package that adds to the standard iron rotors huge carbon-ceramic brakes to the front. The system is responsive and foreseeable. The optional brakes provide extra strength and are more capable. It is ideal for racetracks and mountain roads.

The RS 5’s sound quality is impressive. It’s based on that produced by a 2000 2.7-liter V6 RS 4 that never made it to the U.S. market. It sounds mean during upshifts and growls belligerently – much like the outgoing V8. The cabin is well-insulated from the outside anger, and the noise from the engine feels like it’s coming from next door.

Audi has managed to enhance low-range frequencies and keep them below 3000 revs. There’s also a “shaker” device located behind the instrument panel which acts on the metal plate using the car’s vibrations.

The RS 5 owes its aesthetics to the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO race car. It comes with a larger grille than the one found in the S5 and the A5. The front air intakes are also larger. The overall feeling is sophisticated. The black cabin can be improved with red stripes stitched to the seatbelts.

The car comes with a fantastic driving position, a supportive forward and rear view, massaging and multi-adjustable front seats. The coupe’s roofline allows four passengers to sit comfortably. They also have access to 4 cup holders.

The coupe starts at $70,000. The standard features include 20-inch wheels and a Black Optics appearance package that darkens the rear lip spoiler, mirror caps, lower-front fascia, and the body-side flourish. Optional packages include a $3,000 Dynamic package, $6,000 Dynamic Plus, and the RS Driver-Assistance package. The first one adds adjustable dampers, black-tipped RS Sport exhaust, and red brake calipers. The second includes a carbon-fiber engine cover, a 19-mph increase in top speed, and ceramic brakes. The last bundle adds a lane-keep assist, a head-up display, 360-degree-view camera. Traffic-sign recognition and automatic high beams. The steering also automates at 40 mph and below, and the car’s top speed reaches 155 mph.

The Individual mode allows consumers to adjust the transmission shift points, steering response, the Quattro rear differential and enables configuration of the dynamic control. The RS 5 also comes with a self-locking center differential that distributes torque between both axles. It boasts of 18/26/21 mpg EPA ratings, but a 15.3-liter gallon tank means that drivers will need frequent fueling.
