2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport — Is It Worth the Wait?

By | 12/25/2014

The famous German manufacture Audi has just released its new version of the RS5 coupe. The 2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport will come in 75 units only, which says enough about its extravagance and uniqueness. The new model will come with some luxurious and interesting perks compared to the regular model, but it will also come with higher price than the latter. The reason to such price increase lies in the small number of units the model will be sold in. However, many sources disagree with such Audi move, stating that the price increase is too high, since the limited edition of the sport coupe only brings some smaller design changes and improvements. Reportedly, both the regular RS5 and the RS5 Coupe Sport will be powered by the same engine and the same powertrain setup. Therefore, it seems illogical that the new model is $17,000 more expensive that the normal coupe, with the starting price of $87,575. However, we believe that such assessment is something the buyer should make – therefore, we will give you the specs, and you decide.

The 2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport will come with an attractive and aggressive exterior design. Its appearance will be based on the appearance of the regular RS5, but the new model will definitely look more modern and impressive. The overall shape and style of the coupe should remain unchanged, but there will be some details which will make the new coupe stand out from the crowd. The 2015 RS5 Coupe Sport will come with two standard colors – the Nardo Gray and Daytona Grey, while there will be other nuances offered as option. Also, it will sit atop of 20-inch V-spoke wheels with red brake calipers which will add more racing and sporty feel to the overall design. As for the size and dimensions, expect no changes.

The 2015 Audi RS5 Sport Coupe will be powered by a 4.2-liter V8 FSI engine that is capable of generating 450 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. This unit has been used for the RS5 model for quite some time, and its performance has been flawless so far. However, we were expecting some novelties with the limited edition coupe, so truth be told, we were a bit disappointed to find out there will be none. The aforementioned unit will be mated to the seven-speed S-Tronic transmission and it will come with Quattro all-wheel drive as standard (there will be no other option but the Quattro). The new 2015 Audi RS5 Sport Coupe will reach 60 mph from a standstill in 4.5 seconds, while its maximum speed is set at 174 mph.

Price Tag – Is the New Model Worth It?

The new model is released, and its 75 units should be sold quickly. If you believe that the new model is worth additional $17,000 compared to the regular RS5 coupe, then you should hurry up and get one while you still can. The starting price is set at $87,575, though there is no information about the additional costs for, for example, a different exterior color or similar.
