Audi reveal new RS5 Sportback

Audi has given the RS treatment to the A5 Sportback, adding a third body style to the RS4/5 range.

The exterior upgrades include RS box wheelarch extensions and aggressive enhancements to the front and rear bumpers.  Under the bonnet there’s the same 2.9-litre ‘hot-vee’ twin-turbo V6 that features in the coupe, delivering 444bhp and 443lb ft of torque.

The coupe’s outstanding adaptive dampers are present, along with the same Sport rear differential, although both are expected to be on the options list in the UK.

The jury is out on whether the RS5 Sportback will surpass the performance of the BMW M4 Comp Pack and the Mercedes-AMG C63 S, but it will certainly offer both cars stiff competition.
