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
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.
15 years after,F1 still misses you.
