Audi S5 Special Edition introduced in the U.S. image

The German based automaker Audi has recently introduced in the United States a special edition of the S5 model.

According to the car manufacturer, the brain behind this Audi S5 Special Edition is the A4, S4, A5, S5 and RS5 product planner, Barry Hoch, and the automaker is saying that this model has been developed for enthusiasts. The Audi S5 Special Edition doesn’t stand out from the crowd with its exterior design, which is basically unchanged, except for the 19 inch alloy wheels and the Daytona Grey paint job. Besides these, the Audi S5 Special Edition is also coming with two-tone sports seats on the inside, along with piano black badges, carbon fiber trim, unique floor mates with aluminum badges and white piping.

Audi is also saying that the S5 Special Edition isn’t powered by the 3.0 liter TFSI V6 engine and this model is actually coming with the 4.2 liter unit, which is closing the gap a bit too much between the S5 and the RS5 models. The Audi S5 Special Edition will be limited to just 125 units and the sports car will come with a choice of either the six-speed manual or tiptronic automatic transmission and the Quattro manual has a starting price of 68.700 USD, while the Quattro tiptronic costs 69.900 USD.
