Updated Audi RS5 Coupe Makes It Debut In Australia


The all new Audi RS5 Coupe has finally landed in Australia where it has a starting price of AUD $161,400. This model is the same normally aspirated V8 4.2-liter FSI engine that delivers 444 hp (331 kW / 450 PS) at 8,250 rpm and a peak torque of 317 lb.-ft. (430 Nm) available between 4,000 rpm and 6,000 rpm. When compared to the model it replaces, the new version of the RS5 Coupe consumes 0.3 liters / 100 km less fuel, hence fuel consumption is rated at 10.5 liters / 100 km.

The power unit is coupled to a seven-speed S tronic transmission which allows the car to sprint 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds, on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). On the owner’s request, the top speed limiter can be increased to 174 mph (280 km/h).

The Aussies are able to get the RS5 Coupe with two Dynamic Sports packages that both come with the Sport Suspension Plus with Dynamic Ride Control and the many 20-inch alloy wheels, blackened tail pipe rims and other accessories as well.
