The A5/S5 models from Audi have enjoyed tremendous success ever since their introduction in 2007. The Sportback and Cabriolet followed in 2009. Over 320,000 units of the Coupé alone have been sold to date since the market launch.
In 2007, the S5 Coupé was equipped with the 4.2 liter V8 engine producing 260 kW (354 hp) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) of torque. The S5 Sportback and S5 Cabriolet, which followed somewhat later, already had a new 3.0 liter V6 engine with supercharging under the hood. The two-door Coupé followed suit in 2011. Its output data: 245 kw (333 hp) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft).
Numerous top placements in reader and expert polls underscored the strong position of the A5/S5 model family. In 2010, the renowned German Design Council honored it with the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany. Customers are fascinated by the design of the A5/S5 models. It is by far their most important reason for buying.
The Audi RS 5 Coupé as the model athlete and the RS 5 Cabriolet as an open-top, high-performance model have been fascinating customers with supreme performance since 2010 and 2012, respectively. Their 4.2 FSI engine, a high-revving, naturally aspirated V8, catapults them from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) with 33 kW (450 hp) in 4.5 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.9 seconds). Top speed can be optionally increased to 280 km/h (174.0 mph).
