RS5 coupe will come to North America image

According to InsideLine, Audi will bring its powerful coupe – the Audi Rs5 to the United States. An insider from Quattro GmbH, the Audi’s performance division told:

“We have voted on it and the car is coming over definitely. But,” he adds, “it will be more than a year out from the start of deliveries in Western Europe.”

Every Rs5 that will come to US will be fully optioned and include the rear-axle sport differential, Dynamic Ride Control software upgrades, and possibly the chromed thundering Boysen sport exhaust — all optional in other markets.

The RS5 features a new 4.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 with 444 bhp (331 kW; 450 PS) and 317 lb·ft (430 N·m) of torque. The engine is a re-worked version of the old RS4/R8 V8, which is closely related to the V10 in the R8.
