Audi Al Nabooda, the official Audi dealer for Dubai and the Northern Emirates, has launched the new Audi RS 5 Coupe across its showrooms.

The new Audi RS 5 Coupé is the first Audi Sport model in the new RS design idiom. The car’s all-new 2.9 TFSI biturbo engine produces 450 horses and delivers 600Nm of torque. Standard quattro drive distributes the power to all four wheels.

Ali Al Nabooda, General Manager at Audi Al Nabooda, said: “The new Audi RS 5 Coupé is the gran turismo among the RS models from Audi Sport. The high-performance Coupé combines elegant aesthetics with high everyday usability, providing significantly more performance coupled with higher efficiency.”

The RS 5 Coupé sprints from 0- 100kph in 3.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250kph. Featuring 20in wheels and the Audi virtual cockpit as standard, the exterior styling  packages in either gloss black, carbon or matt aluminium — provide a wide range of customization options.

Whilst the standard paint colours for the RS 5 include both modern and sporty combinations, Audi Sport also offers the striking launch color of Sonoma green metallic as an exclusive paint finish for this new performance  coupé. The RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC), ceramic brakes and dynamic steering with RS-specific tuning gear the drivining experience to a performance tailored experience. Drivers can make their personal driving experience even more individual, dynamic or comfortable using the standard Audi drive select system. Bathed in black, the interior of the new Audi RS 5 Coupé is extremely upscale and sportily appointed. Details such as RS sport seats with optional quilted diamond stitching in the fine Nappa leather and the flat-bottomed RS multifunction sport steering wheel underscore the character of the high-performance coupe. The statement RS logos on the seats, steering wheel, door sill trims and the selector lever remind the driver of its Audi Sport heritage  ‘Born on the track, built for the road.’
