The new Audi RS5 is pretty easy to identify compared to the regular A5. It's got massive air inlets, a wider grille, additional lateral air intakes and outlets, tinted bezels for the optional Matrix LEDs and wider wheel arches.

Other visual features include the RS-specific diffuser insert, oval tailpipes of the RS exhaust system and the surface-mounted spoiler lip. Then there's the standard 19" wheels, though buyers might consider going for the more imposing 20" optional alloys.

Powering the all-new RS5 is a 2.9-liter TFSI V6 bi-turbo engine, which Audi built from the ground up. It produces 450 PS (331 kW) as well as 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, which is an increase of 170 Nm (125 lb-ft) compared to the previous generation model. In a straight line, it will go from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and max out at 280 km/h (174 mph) with the optional dynamic package.
