With a new V6 engine and looks that kill, the RS5 promises to act as sporty as it looks.
Audi surprised the crowd at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show with a debut nobody knew about -- the 2018 RS5 coupe.
The look is very close to the A5 and S5 coupes. But, you know, sportier.
The wheels are larger, the air intakes on the front bumper are larger, and the tailpipes are much larger.
The interior ramps up the sporting pretension with leather sport seats with optional diamond stitching and a flat-bottomed RS steering wheel.
RS badges are just about everywhere.
The old RS5 used a V8, whereas this one makes do with a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6.
It puts out 450 horsepower and 442.5 pound-feet of torque. 62 mph arrives in 3.9 seconds.
Power heads to all four wheels by way of an eight-speed automatic.
The 2018 Audi RS5 will hit dealerships in Germany this June, and a US debut is very likely.
Its MSRP is 80,900 euros. That's $85,495 directly converted.
