This is the RS5, Audi’s latest high performance coupe.
On show at the Geneva Motor Show this month, the 444bhp beastie will be on sale later in 2017.
Whereas the outgoing car had a 4.2 litre V8, the new model gets a 2.9 litre V6 that is lighter and more efficient.
Audi claims a 0-62mph time of 3.9sec, which is 0.6sec faster than the old RS5. Top speed is nominally limited to 155mph, though buyers can extend with to 174mph by choosing Audi’s “dynamic package.” The exterior is suitably butch, with spoilers, flared wheel arches and giant oval exhausts. Inside, there’s a wealth of “RS” branded stitching, a flat-bottomed wheel and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display.
It should go on sale in the UK from June with prices starting at around the £63,000 mark.
