- Ferocious power harnessed in an exclusive performance vehicle
- New RS 5 available now in Australia for $161,400*
The new Audi RS 5 has arrived in Australia and is sharper in almost every way: design, performance, dynamics and
pricing. Available from $161,400*, the new RS 5 is optionally available with two special dynamic packages so that the
true performance potential of this exclusive vehicle can be realised.
The Audi RS 5 Coupé is an elite 'athlete'. Its 4.2 FSI engine, a high-revving, normally aspirated V8, produces 331 kW
at 8,250 rpm, with the peak torque of 430 Nm available between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. It consumes an average of just 10.5

blackened tail pipe trims and a choice of 20-inch alloy wheels styles: the contemporary ‘Rotor’ design aluminium or
Visually, the Audi RS 5 Coupé now has an even more athletic and muscular road stance. The upper corners of the
single-frame grille are bevelled, and sharper edges lend the bonnet an even more sculpted appearance. The most striking
elements at the front of the car, however, are the new wedge-shaped headlights. Utilising xenon plus technology, they
include narrow LED strips for the daytime running lights. The taillights and the rear bumper have also been
Two new Audi exclusive packages are also now available to RS 5 buyers, with Valcona leather coming with a choice of
diamond quilting ($14,990*) and contrasting red leather (from $9,400*) elements to provide an even more exclusive
appearance. A flat-bottomed steering wheel now comes standard on the RS 5, while MMI Navigation functionality has also
“In the two short years since it arrived in Australia, the Audi RS 5 Coupe has generated a huge amount of interest
among enthusiasts. The combination of a powerful, high-revving V8 engine, fast-shifting S tronic dual-clutch transmission
and quattro all-wheel drive makes the RS 5 a formidable buying proposition. Early interest in the new model has been even
stronger than we anticipated and we look forward to continuing that trend,” said Audi Australia’s Managing Director,
The Audi A5 Coupe, Sportback and Cabriolet range was comprehensively updated in May and the new RS 5 Coupe completes
the line-up in Australia.
