The 2018 Audi RS5 is all new. Starting with its massive air intakes, it’s clear the RS5 is no average beast. The meanest version of Audi’s sports coupe now has a 444-hp twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 instead of a naturally aspirated V-8. That’s six less horsepower than the outgoing V-8, but torque has increased dramatically to 443 lb-ft. The output routes through Audi’s rear-biased Quattro all-wheel-drive system via an eight-speed automatic. Find out if this a the highest performing RS5 ever!

      Le Mans...... they ran a diesel in an endurance race what did you expect? Then Porsche came along recently and won but it was staged and it was sickening to see all the Porsche fan boys with their flags and hats. Le Mans is dead because of Audi.

      thanks for the video but some misinformation here. the transmission is a ZF 8 speed auto, not a dual clutch. the red stitching is one of the seat choices, not a RS exclusive thing.

      I saw one of these that the owner mostly blacked out with the front splitter, the side sill, and spoiler accented with red. It was a very nice car. Someday I'll have one. Or a ttrs. Either would look great next to the scat pac shaker I plan to get next year

      I think Audi does some of the best interiors in the industry. If you compare this care to the TTRS, I actually think that car has nicer interior pieces. You are right though that rattles and creaks can be very annoying and detract fro the whole driving experience.

      Nice car, but very similar to the Audi you did the other day. Is there a car that you can say actually has a complete interior of all nice plastics and what not. I feel like this is a HUGE thing nowadays where people talk about the cheap pieces or the entire interior is cheap. For instance the Focus Rs, i personally like my interior so i don't really get what people are knocking on it. If i had one thing to complain about ANY car i think it would be...if i hear rattles or what not, i can't deal with noise other then the bumps and road, but when it sounds like it's falling apart i get irritated, i find the problem and fix it asap haha. That wet carbon fiber in that Audi looked so nice though
