The RS hardcore lineup from Audi is definitely a challenge for the hot divisions from Mercedes-Benz or BMW, with the models getting plenty of optional features at the exterior, inside or under the hood, adding as well a greater money value.
For instance, the German carmaker has recently released the online configurator of the hot and brand-new 2018 RS5 Coupe, with an array of characteristics to choose from. However, they come with a price. The model costs $69,900, but with the new features the total price tag is set at $96,650.
At the exterior, the 2018 Audi RS5 Coupe is offered with the standard Nardo Gray paintjob. Should you choose other colours like Navarra Blue, Sonoma Green, Daytona Gray, Glacier White or Misano Red, then you have to empty your pockets for another $575.
Besides the colour and the 19-inch standard wheels, you can also add more aggressive looks by purchasing the $2,500 worth of 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.
The list of optional goodies are limitless. There are also a couple of packages that transform your RS5 Coupe into an extremely sexy and appealing car. The Dynamic Package costs for instance $3,350 and features red brake calipers and sport exhaust system, while the Dynamic Plus Package is set at $6,000 and adds electronic speed limiter to 174 miles per hour, ceramic front brakes and carbon fiber engine cover.
The inside goodies refer to $1,500 worth of honeycomb quilting with red or gray stitching, on top of standard leather upholstery/Alcantara with diamond quilting, or sport seats.
As for power output, the 2018 Audi RS5 Coupe comes stock with a 2.9-liter bi-turbo V6 engine with 444 horsepower and impressive 600 Nm of torque. This is paired to a high-performance eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive configuration. The driving system sends 60 percent of the power to the back, with help to receive from a torque-vectoring sports rear differential as well.
