Audi launch new 444bhp RS5 coupe

Audi’s racy new RS5 coupe is available to order this month, with first deliveries expected in the summer.

The second-generation RS5 comes complete with a Virtual Cockpit digital instrument display and quattro sport rear differential as standard.  A carbon-fibre roof, Dynamic Ride Control suspension and a louder RS exhaust are all available as options.

The new 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine delivers 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds (versus 4.6 secs for the old V8 powered RS5), reaching 174mph with the limiter removed.  As well as being faster than the previous model, the new RS5 is also more efficient.  CO2 emissions are 17% lower, at 197g/km and the car manages 32.5mpg.

Power is split 40:60 between the front and rear wheels, running through an eight-speed tiptronic automatic gearbox, and the driver can choose between several different driving modes.

Pricing for the new RS5 coupe starts at £62,900.
