On the heels of the reintroduction of the RS performance brand last year with the incredible TT RS, the next track-tested RS model to be come to U.S. shores is the RS 5. Performance design, a high-revving naturally aspirated 4.2 liter V8 engine and a sport tuned suspension deliver impeccable performance. The RS 5 goes from 0 – 60 in just 4.5 seconds. With a rear sport differential and crown gear standard, the RS 5 epitomizes the next level of quattro performance. Each RS model undergoes 8,000 kilometers of durability testing and tuning at the treacherous Nuerburgring to ensure it can perform at the limit as well as simply enjoy a weekend drive. Combined with RS design elements such as the honeycomb Singleframe® grille, unique front and rear bumper, front splitter and rear diffuser as well as offering the latest in technology through Audi connect and Audi MMI Navigation plus, the RS 5 is sure to attract many customers who appreciate having performance under foot whenever they choose.

Wait NA 4.2 V8 and 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. This thing gets destroyed by cars that cost considerably less.

My guess is that 4.5 is a conservative estimate from Audi. Hopefully that number drops to the high 3's when testing comes around. Not seeing how an AWD, 450 horsepower Audi can be equally as fast as a 420 horsepower, RWD Mustang.

Holy shit. Just realized this is an RS5... That is poopy slow for an RS model considering the fact that a regular 335i can do 60 in under 5 seconds.
