2018 Audi RS 5 Coupe Overseas Preview Drive

2018 Audi RS 5 Coupe Overseas Preview DriveThis second generation RS 5 doesn’t follow its predecessor’s lead though. Stricter emissions rules have seen the V8 dropped in favour of a more technologically proficient (and more efficient) twin turbo V6.

We also quizzed Winklemann on the shift from a naturally aspirated V8, to a smaller twin-turbo V6 and what effect that might have upon customers of the high-performance Audi RS5.

Along the flanks, Quattro blisters which emphasize the wheel arches are 15mm wider over the standard Audi A5. The RS5 will also feature 19-inch wheels as standard, 20-inch optional wheels are also offered.

The smaller turbocharged engine and automatic transmission might put off some driving purists, but they should know that the 2018 RS5 Coupe gives up nothing in terms of driving pleasure, and is now a faster, lighter and more engaging car. The new Audi RS5 Coupe will be arriving at dealers in the first quarter of 2018, with pricing to be announced closer to its launch date.
