Leaked: first photo's from the brutal Audi RS5



Audi is bringing even more horsepower to the Geneva Autoshow. Besides the Audi RS6 Avant Plus, the long-expected Audi RS5 is coming to Geneva as well. In the meanwhile, we finally have got the official footage of this monster!
The exterior is much more extreme compared to its less powerful brother, the S5. At the front of the car, we see a lot of spoilers in order to create the right amount of downforce. At the back, the huge diffuser is noticed immediately. With the RS-models from Audi, we always see two oval exhausts and this model is no exception. Just as the R8, the RS5 has got an extendable spoiler.

The RS5 produces op to 450 bhp at 8250 rpm. Audi's V8 can do a maximum of 8500 rpm. Since the first pictures were leaked already, Audi will probably come out with further details of this sporty model anytime soon.

Any word on price? I'd venture a guess of ~$65,000

Base maybe. I wouldn't be surprised at $70,000+ though. Their only limit will be the R8 price. People will still line up to buy it. Those LED accent lights in the headlight are really getting old though. I saw so many of them driving around yesterday it turned from cool to annoying fast. Like hearing the same song on the radio too many times.

An RS4 starts at $67k. I'd guess you are looking more at ~$75k for an RS5 maybe even more.

Love the seats but I don't think that is a very good place for the engine start and stop button.

i would say over $80k for sure. Don't get in line as the high-line market is dead too. Just wait 6mo and make an offer.You can even buy a new Porsche GT3 at discount.
COST IN EUROPE 77,000 Euros

BMW usually gives more performance for your $
BMW Blog
The horsepower war took a bit of a hiatus for a few months after Audi’s B7 platform RS4 went out of production and the debut of the Mercedes Benz C63 AMG – both in 2008 and both to do battle directly with the king of the hill: the BMW M3.

However, Audi is back and packing quite a weapon in their arsenal – a powerful coupe of RS caliber. The all-new 2011 RS5 has finally broken cover after much speculation as to what exactly Audi would put into play in the battle between the mid-size, mini-supercar realm. The M3, for an all-round package has managed to keep atop of the list of these mid-size powerhouses over the last few years by providing the most complete package between handling, power, and luxury accouterments.

Audi is out the change the game, of course, with the new RS5. So, let’s take a look at the specifications that have been taken from the “accidentally leaked” brochure of the upcoming Ingolstadt warrior. The wide-bodied two door is anticipated to sport a modified version of the V8 of the now defunct RS4. So, the car will be powered by a 4.2L V8 pushing out approximately 450HP – a full 30HP over the B7 RS4 and the V8 model of the R8 sportscar – coincidentally, about 30 horsepower over the 4.2L V8 of the M3.
This boosted power figure, in part, has been created by the two enormous air boxes sitting just behind the front air dam. In terms of a redline, the RS5 runs out of juice at 8,200 RPMs and is regulated by a dual clutch transmission with 7 forward gears. Rumor has it that the RS5 will not have the option for a traditional 6-speed manual – though this has yet to be confirmed.

The war is on, but will there be a winner takes it all? We’ll find out more after the first test drives.
