Audi has released the UK price of the new 2012 Audi RS5 Facelift. Customers can order the new model now at an OTR price of £ 58,725. It will reach its first British customers in April.
The RS5 features a high-revving 4.2 liter V8 with 450 horsepower and a seven-speed S tronic transmission with launch control program. The 4.2 FSI delivers 450 horsepower at 8,250rpm and between 4,000 and 6,000rpm, and transmits a maximum of 317lb-ft of torque. The engine propels the RS5 on to an electronically-governed top speed of 174mph.
Dynamic ride control and dynamic steering options are available individually or combined as part of a new Sport Package, which also includes larger 20 inch rotor design titanium-look alloy wheels to replace the standard 19 inch examples and a sports exhaust system that further amplifies the bass-heavy growl of the V8. Priced at £ 2,250, it offers a saving of £ 2,915 compared with specifying the options individually.
