Audi RS5 2017, first pictures of the mule testing

The new Audi A5 has not yet seen the light of day officially but we will very soon roll by here. Thank you to our section of spy photos we’ve already seen it in its conventional version, in the sport settings S5 and now in its most radical Audi RS5.


The mule testing the Audi RS5 is walking around in disguise trying to mimic the prototype S5 but the difference between both models becomes obvious if we look with attention. Our photographers captured this S5 with a track width substantially wider than than usual that betray you as the Audi A5 more radical of the next generation.

At present, the Audi RS5 equip a block V8 of 4.2 liters, the same who mounted the R8 of the previous generation, which produces 450 HP and 430 Nm of peak torque in combination with the all-wheel drive Quattro and the automatic transmission of seven relationships with camshaft behind the wheel for the manual handling of the gears. Accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and has a limit of speed fixed electronically not to exceed 250 km/h.


In this new generation will equip a propeller more efficient that exceeds the current both in features and in fuel economy. In this task also possess great prominence the new platform MLB thanks to the use of lightweight materials is able to reduce the weight in a few 100 kg of media. All this without neglecting that there is still the possibility that reach the range RS thrusters diesel high performance as in the Audi RS5 TDI Concept.

with Respect to its aesthetics, we have an idea of how it will be this coupé derivative of the new sedan Audi A4 with the new signs of identity that does not throw off the design of a continuation of the Audi, not to mention the innate characteristics of the alternative more radical: wider, lower, with larger air intakes, four exhaust outlets that will make a lot of noise and everything faster and more agile than ever.
