The new Audi RS5 Coupe demonstrates its sporty character as a gran turismo at first glance. The designers drew inspiration for the car from the distinctive motorsport details of the Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO. The front, sides and rear exhibit RS-typical differentiation. Measuring 4,723 millimeters (185.9 in) in length, the second generation of the Audi RS5 Coupe is 74 millimeters (2.9 in) longer than the predecessor model. The height is 1,360 millimeters (53.5 in) and thus 6 millimeters (0.2 in) lower than previously. At 1,861 millimeters (73.3 in), the vehicle’s width is almost the same as before.
The standard headlights use LED technology, while the optional Matrix LED headlights are distinguished by their darker tinted bezels. Alongside them are additional lateral air inlets, which make this top-performing athlete appear even wider and more aggressive.
Sporty interior in black and red: the flat-bottomed RS sport leather steering wheel is standard, as are the stainless steel pedals and RS sport seats. As an option, they can be covered in fine Nappa leather with honeycomb pattern. Red contrasting stitching adds emphasis to the steering wheel, center console, armrests, seats and floor mats. Carbon decorative trim underlines the dynamic appearance. The horizontal architecture of the instrument panel creates a vast sense of spaciousness in the high-quality, sportily appointed interior of the new RS5 Coupe. As standard, it welcomes the driver and passengers with illuminated door sills bearing the RS5 logo. LED light guides trace the contours of the doors and the center console - doing so in 30 different colors in combination with the optional ambient lighting. The interior is black. RS sport seats with rhombus pattern and embossed RS emblem underline the character of the high-performance Coupe. They are available in a combination of leather and Alcantara, and feature seat heating and a lumbar support. The RS sport seats are optionally available in fine Nappa leather with honeycomb pattern and contrasting stitching. They are also available in perforated Milano leather.
The fast, spontaneously and sportily shifting eight-speed tiptronic with optimized shift times is standard on the new Audi RS5 Coupe. The layout of its gear sets and shifting elements results in low drag torques and thereby to a high efficiency level. Its large number of gears very frequently makes it possible to operate the engine close to its ideal load point. The lower gears have short, sporty ratios, while the upper gears are long in order to reduce revs and fuel consumption.
