Friends of the four-door Performance can look forward to now that very doll. Because from the looks of it, the rumors are true: Audi is bringing to all appearances, for the first time, an RS 5 Sportback. The S5 emblems fool you, because a quick look at the flared fenders, and oval exhaust tailpipes betrays the new Top model, the future is to compete against the BMW M3, Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Mercedes-AMG C 63.

Biturbo V6 with 450 HP

As we have already tested 2017er-RS-5 the RS 5 Sportback the newly developed 2.9-Liter-Biturbo-V6 with 450 HP and 600 Newton meters of torque. An eight-speed automatic the power is via variable-Quattro drive to all four wheels. The manage is extremely efficient, because the Sprint from 0-100 km/h takes in the RS 5 just 3.9 seconds. The RS 5 Sportback is not likely to need despite the two doors, and a few Kilos more is no longer. The maximum speed is 250 km/h. optionally, Audi raises the Vmax of 280 cases.

Premiere at the beginning of 2018

The Ingolstadt-based company already see the two-door RS 5 rather than Performance GT and less than a Hardcore sports coupe. This approach is likely to come in the new RS 5 Sportback rather more pronounced. The Premiere of the more practical RS-5 shear, we expect the beginning of 2018. Either at the show in Detroit or at the Geneva car salon. Previously, Audi will introduce you to the Frankfurt motor show in September 2017, the new RS 4 Avant.
