2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport Limited Edition: Can It Justify Its Price?
The 2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport will be available in only 75 units. It has been designed by Quattro GmbH, Audi’s performance division, and it’s really something special, but are its features good enough to justify the price? The 2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport MSRP starts at $87,575. That’s pretty steep, but let’s take a look at the car first. One of the most important features of a sports coupe is its character and performance. The 2015 RS5 Coupe Sport is powered by the same old 4.2-liter V8 naturally aspirated FSI engine. The mill is connected to the all four wheels via a seven-speed S-Tronic transmission. Since the gearbox and the permanent Quattro all-wheel drive aren’t new, is there any reason one would like to buy a car whose price is $17,000 higher than the price of the stock RS5? Well, there is.
Sports Car Appearance and Customized Style
The exterior of the 2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport is very attractive, although it will probably be replaced by a new design language soon. The body will be painted in either Nardo Gray or Daytona Gray. Of course, the performance coupe could be customized by other, optional colors, but these two are standard. The 2015 RS5 Coupe Sport sits atop of an impressive set of 20-inch V-spoke wheels which subtly reveals red brake calipers.
Interior and Style
Inside, the seats are wrapped in Nappa leather upholstery in black and Crimson Red contrast. Contrast stitching on the steering wheel, RS logo embedded in the leather of the seats, and Crimson Red door inserts are just various details which disclose the level of meticulousness of the manufacturer’s team.
2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport Specs
The powertrain hasn’t suffered essential changes, as we stated before. There’s the naturally aspirated 4.2-liter V8 FSI engine which delivers 450 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to this engine, the seven-speed S-Tronic transmission and the permanent Quattro all-wheel drive, the 2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds. Its top speed is limited to 174 mph.
Is $87,575 Too Much for 2015 Audi RS5 Coupe Sport?
Maybe there are some other performance cars which can be bought for $87,575, but not so many performance coupes are this exclusive. Owning a car which comes in only 75 examples is something special.
