New Audi RS5 Coupe to be launched in India this month
The new Audi RS5 Coupe is confirmed to launch in India on the 11th of April. The Audi RS 5 Coupe possibly has the most aggressive-looking front-end design among the cars from Ingolstadt. It’s also hugely capable, with its GT ability, quattro AWD, plush-yet-purpose-built interior, and the bi-turbo engine.
India will launch the 2018 Audi RS 5 Coupe at an event in Bengaluru on April 11, 2018. The car will join the other performance-orientated models in the Indian line up, including what’s easily one of the best supercars to live with, the Audi R8 V10 Plus.
The Audi RS5 Coupe will be the fourth car in the company’s A5 lineup, which currently includes the A5, A5 convertible and the S5 Sportback. The new RS5 Coupe will take on rivals such as the BMW M4 and will be priced over Rs 1 crore.
It gets a 2.9-litre TFSI bi-turbo V6 engine that makes 444 bhp and 61.22 kgm. Apart from the safety net of computer-controlled assists, there’s the venerable quattro system (40:60) mated to the 8-speed tiptronic gearbox. The car takes just 3.9 seconds to reach 100 kph from a standstill, exhales a lowly 197 gram of CO2 per km, and boasts a limited top speed of 250 kph.
It’s also about 60 kilos lighter than before, and a bit longer, too. And as we’ve seen with the recent Audis, the company offers Sonoma green metallic paint as an option on the RS 5 Coupe.
