We posted with great excitement when it emerged that the good folks at the Indian subsidiary of Audi, VW Group’s premium car brand, will soon launch the 2013 Audi RS5 facelift in the fast emerging car market of our country. Seen here in the lead image is a teaser that we found on the official Facebook page of Audi India.
So, what’s the latest development with this, you might ask. Well, we have now got to know that the car could be unveiled in India on July 2. This information comes to us from the Official Facebook page of Autocar India.
The 2013 Audi RS5 facelift comes with minor styling tweaks and some extra features. The RS5 is based on the A5 Coupe but is slightly longer, wider and is a bit shorter.
Powering the 2013 RS5 is the carmaker’s 4.2 litre normally aspirated FSI V8 petrol engine that has a max power output of 450 bhp and a peak torque figure of 430 Nm, enough to frighten the unsuspecting road users. All this power is transmitted to all four wheels though a 7-speed S Tronic automatic transmission and Audi’s trademark Quattro system.
The car is capable of accelerating from zero to 100kmph in merely 4.6 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph.
With distinctive Audi styling and the promise of mind blowing performance, the RS5 looks poised to win the hearts of many Indian performance car enthusiasts.
