The release of the Audi RS5 is coming closer, this undisguised Audi RS5 was testing at the famous Grossglockner pass in Austria. Our friends Brady and David Dwyer snapped some photos and a short video of the Audi RS5 in action.
The Audi RS5 will be equipped with the well-known 4.2 V8, pushing out a little over 450 hp. And like the S5, also the RS5 is likely to see a topless version. In the video below you can hear the sound of the new Audi RS5 as it’s produced by the V8 driving up the mountain.
The Grossglockner, where the Audi RS5 was spotted, is one of Austria’s main tourist attractions. The 48km long alpine road that starts in Bruck and ends in Heiligenblut leads you through the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park, to the highest mountain in Austria, the Grossglockner (3,798m) and its glacier, the Pasterze. The Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse as it’s called in German, features 36 bends, and an altitude ascent to 2,504 metres! If you’re ever in Austria make sure to visit it, it’s open from the beginning of may till the end of october.
