After aesthetic upgrades that involved the entire A5 range the coupe, sedan and Sportback, it’s the time to redo the look for the Audi RS5 that the German auto maker has just presented this month at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show along with numerous new models. The facelifted RS5 Coupe measures 23 mm longer, 6 mm wider and 6 mm lower. As every one thought the 2012 Audi RS5 comes with the same engine, the natural aspirated 4,163 cc V8 that delivers to the wheels 450 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and a constant 430 Nm of torque between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 Km/h, but it’s possible to move this limit to 280 km/h as optional. Acceleration from 0 to 100 is 4.6 seconds. In the video below you can appreciate the unique soundtrack of the excellent V8 engine.
