Rear Spoiler Tuned


Audi

We have again spotted a real prototype for the upcoming Audi RS5 while doing handling tests on the challenging Nürburgring race circuit in Germany. The sensation is the rear spoiler that lifts out of the body at higher speeds.

Again you can see very clearly the typical oval tailpipes – a signature of Audi’s RS series of cars. Also the car’s front gives it away as an RS5, but it remains unclear what powerplant those air-intakes lead cooling to. However, sources indicate that the RS5 will be powered by the same twin-turbo V10 found in the Audi RS6 Avant. In RS6 guise, that powerplant is good for 580 horsepower. No word on when the RS5 will debut, but it looks as though the BMW M6 has been put on notice.
