New Audi rs5 in Andorra

AUDI RS5 in Andorra (Pyrenees)

The Audi A5 is a series of compact executive coupe cars produced by the German automobile manufacturer Audi since June 2007.

The A5 range additionally comprises the coupe, cabriolet, and “Sportback” (a five-door liftback with a fastback roofline) version of the Audi A4 saloon and estate models. Under Audi’s internal platform numbering convention, the A5 is a member of the B-platform series of vehicles, sharing its platform designation with the A4 saloon and Avant. The first generation A5 (Type 8T) is therefore a member of the B8 family, whilst the second generation model (Type 8W6) is based on the B9.

Both are derived from the Volkswagen MLB (Modular Longitudinal Matrix) architecture.

Second generation (2017) RS

The RS 5 Coupé is powered by a 2.9 liter TFSI V6 twin turbo engine producing 331 kW (450 PS; 444 hp) and 600 N⋅m (443 lb⋅ft) of torque that is also used in the Panamera 4S. It is 60 kg (132 lb) lighter than its predecessor. Power is delivered to the quattro system with a 8-speed automatic transmission.

The RS 5 accelerates from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, with a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). It also comes with a honeycomb grille, wider fenders, and aggressively-styled front bumper with bigger openings than the A5 and S5.

Further developments include a new chassis featuring a five-link front and rear suspension coupled to Audi Sport’s Dynamic Ride Control system offering variable damping control. Other options included with a carbon-fiber engine cover and ceramic front brakes.

The RS 5 Sportback was unveiled at the 2018 New York Auto Show.

The RS 5 facelift was unveiled on December 10, 2019.
