The first spy shots of the 2018 Audi RS5 test mule spy shots have been captured.
While the new Audi A5 and S5 models won’t go on sale until September, Audi is already hard at work testing their faster sibling – the RS5. While these spy shots don’t give us any indication as to the styling of the new RS5, it does give us confirmation that RS5 development is well underway. The shots depict a test mule undergoing development work at the famed Nürburgring.
Audi has been coy regarding the reveal date of the RS5, although many are speculating it could be released as early as next year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. Another possibility is the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The RS5 will feature a more aggressive body kit and a turbocharged V6 under the bonnet. Power output is expected to be in the range of 420 to 450 horsepower thanks to addition of a second turbocharger.
