The facelifted version of the Audi RS5 has been recently launched in Australia where the coupe has a starting price of 161, 400 AUD.

After being officially presented to the public last year and arriving in several markets across the Old Continent so far, the Audi RS5 facelift has been launched in Australia too, where its future owners will have to pay 161,400 AUD before they will be able to get their hands on one. Even if the price set on the Audi RS5 facelift seems a bit too much, the model is still 13,900 AUD cheaper than the regular version.

According to the German based automaker, the Audi RS5 facelift is still offering the same 4.2 liter V8 engine, which is developing a total output of 444 BHP (450 PS / 331 kW) at 8,250 rpm and it has a peak torque of 317 lb-ft, available between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. Power is being set to the four-wheel drive system through a dual clutch seven-speed S tronic transmission and the model can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.5 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 15.4 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 174 mph.
