Audi RS5 comes to America with minor updates

by Gareth Mankoo

The bunch of eager Audi fans living in the stateside may have surely let out a cry of victory after hearing about the RS5’s launch in the country. I must say it wasn’t unexpected, given the reception that the car received at its release hubs. The RS5 will pack the same cool features that made it so endearing, including the hand-built 450hp, 4.2L V8 engine, known for the air-slicing 175 mph runs and 4.6 second performance. Among the other features that potential buyers can look forward to include a 7-speed dual clutch S tronic transmission and Quattro all-wheel-drive.

The spec additions include a single-frame grille, new headlight treatments and LED rear lamps. Overall, the car seems to be more sharply crafted.
