The exterior of the Audi RS 5 Coupé

There is an unmistakable sense of menace about the RS 5 Coupé. Even stationary, it gives the impression of an athlete tensed and waiting for the starter’s gun. The enormous RS brakes with six-piston red calipers offer optimum deceleration and are clearly visible inside the 20-inch alloy wheels, while details like the twin oval exhaust tips, rear diffuser and air outlets pay homage to the car’s racing forbears.
