CAR Magazine has the full lowdown on the new Audi RS5 – including spy photos and computer illustrations that strip away the disguise on this eagerly awaited challenger to the BMW M3. And this could be the hot Audi to rekindle our affections for the brand, now that the RS4 is defunct.
The new October 2008 issue of CAR Magazine, on sale this week, reveals the look of the new RS5 in our exclusive cover story; we compare how Audi’s new super coupe measures up to the class benchmark, the BMW M3, and publish the full technical story on the RS5:
• All about its 450bhp twin-turbo 4.2-litre V8
• Details on the quattro drivetrain, trick diff
• How Audi’s developing active aero for the RS5
• Why it’s getting an S-tronic auto with wet clutch
• Full targets for weight and performance
You can read a preview of our new October 2008 issue of CAR Magazine here. But we’ve added the latest spy photos of the RS5 online – confirming a car that Audi PR handlers deny exist.
Judging by recent form, this could be a high-performance Audi to propel the company right back into contention with the best from BMW and Mercedes. Get the full story – and extra photos – only in CAR Magazine.
