It's a significant upgrade over the previous RS5, which first hit roads in 2013.

This new one does away with its predecessor's V8, swapping down to a twin-turbo V6.

But don't fret, because the horsepower stays the same at 444, but the torque is way up to 443 pound-feet.

The 0 - 60 sprint takes place in just 3.7 seconds, making it quicker than BMW's M4 or the Mercedes-AMG C63 S.

And with a 21-mpg combined figure, the new RS5 is far more efficient than before.

But of course it's the performance that's really worth getting excited about...
