Our overall rating:
Let’s say you fancy an Audi A5 Coupe but you want to go fast, really fast. Yes, there’s the S5 Coupe but for some it might be a little too subtle. And slow. If you won’t get out of bed for less than 400bhp and you want to get noticed, then the 444bhp RS5 Coupe is probably the car for you.
Like the S5, it has a turbocharged V6 up front powering all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. However, the RS5’s motor gets an extra turbocharger and is more highly strung, allowing it to outgun the S5’s 3.0-litre despite being a 2.9-litre lump.
Externally, you can tell an RS5 by its more aggressive bumpers, wider wheel arches to hide fatter wheels and twin oval exhaust pipes. It certainly looks similarly aggressive to rivals such as the BMW M4 and Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.
