It has emerged that the Indian subsidiary of VW Group owned premium car maker Audi will soon launch the 2013 Audi RS5 in the country. The official Facebook page of Audi India has already started posting teaser images of the upcoming performance car.
The 2013 Audi RS5 gets minor styling tweaks and some extra features. The RS5 is based on the A5 Coupe but is slightly longer, wider and a bit shorter.
Powering the RS5 is the carmaker’s 4.2 litre normally aspirated FSI V8 petrol engine that has a max power output of 450 bhp and 430 Nm of torque. 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.
