Audi is now ready to launch the all-new RS5 Coupe in India by this month end. Built from scratch, the new second-generation model of Audi RS5 Coupe comes equipped with a new platform in addition to witnessing a weight reduction of around 60 kgs due to the fitting of an optional carbon fibre roof. Furthermore, the vehicle would be bigger in size as compared to its predecessor. Other special highlights of this new Audi RS5 Coupe include brand-new design language by the company so that you are expected to see the most aggressive Audi rolling out until now.
With a single frame grille up-front, the new Audi RS5 Coupe will get new design bumpers, as well as Quattro Blisters, complimenting the muscular wheel arches. The patented matrix LED of the company will come up with a new RS Coupe too. Some other add-ons are new air intakes, 19-inch wheels, and much more. There is also an optional 20-inch wheel option available to the Indian customers. A sporty conclusion will be given to the vehicle by a surface-mounted spoiler lip, the oval tailpipes of RS exhaust system, and the RS-specific diffuser insert.
Bathed in black, the vehicle’s interior is extremely high standard and even equipped sportily. Special RS displays will be located in the Audi virtual cockpit so as to offer information on torque, pressure, and g-forces. RS sports seats are optionally offered in Nappa leather together with a honeycomb pattern. The character of this high-performance Coupe is underscored by the flat-bottomed steering wheel with RS multifunction sports leather. The rim of the steering wheel will bear the RS badge just like the shift gate and front seat backrests. The RS design package will bring the sporty contrast red color into play on the armrests, center console, floor mats, and seat belts with RS logo. The knee pads, selector level, and the steering wheel are all enveloped with Alcantara. The cabin is also revised in this new Audi RS5 Coupe.
Yet, the engine has undergone a prominent change as the new Audi RS5 Coupe 2018 will get forces from a 2.9 L turbocharged V6 engine, which is good to churn out a maximum power of 450 bhp and peak torque of 600 NM. This seems to be the same engine running the Porsche Panamera. The mill would avail better outputs as far as the previous version of the 4.2-liter V8 mill is considered. The new 2018 Audi RS5 Coupe would come with a standard Quattro all-wheel-drive system. There will be 8-speed automatic gearbox unit while compared to the previous 7-speed transmission. The automaker claims that this new 2018 Audi RS5 Couple would run 0-100 kmph within 3.9 seconds because of lesser weight and extra torque. Though the top speed will be limited to 250 kmph, the dynamic pack would help you in achieving 280 kmph if you would like to go even fast.
It is expected that the price of 2018 Audi RS5 coupe will come around INR 1.25 crore.
