The Appeal 

The RS5 marked Audi’s return to the coupe market. The styling was sleek and handsome and beneath the bonnet was the firm’s revered 4.2litre FSI V8. 440bhp made this a proper M3-beater. 
Finished in subtle black with black wheels and a contrasting linen leather interior, this is a well specified 2012 facelift car. Full Audi service history - it was last attended to just 300 miles ago in December - plus a long MOT to November reinforces the sense of a cared for super coupe with scintillating performance.

The light grey leather upholstery is well maintained, showing few signs of wear. The deep sports seats provide excellent support, ensuring occupants enjoy a snug yet comfortable experience while relishing the RS5's performance. All trim and driving control elements are in good condition, with only minor marks or blemishes. The vendor confirms no functional issues or faults. 
The spacious rear hatch provides a practical amount of boot space. The boot area is trimmed in grey carpeting with no visible staining or deterioration.
Finished in popular Panther black, this is a handsome RS5. The paint is in good order with only the odd swirl and some minor scratches and chips here and there. These are barely visible in the photographs. 
The widened track and bodywork and lowered ride give the car a mean, hunkered down look. The smooth, swooping bodywork is well kept with no dents, corrosion or damage visible. The exterior trim presents well. The Panther Black mirrors are paint-matched and there is an electrically deployed rear spoiler and subtle body kit. 
The badging, glasswork and light lenses are undamaged with no cracking, chipping or UV damage visible. The car is fitted with standard forged five spoke 19-inch wheels in good order showing only light marks. 
Underneath the floor and sills look straight and clean, with no damage or corrosion in evidence. Likewise, the drivetrain components are in good order, with no obvious issues.

The Mechanics 

  • 4,163cc naturally aspirated V8 delivering 440bhp 
  • 7spd ‘S-tronic’ automatic paddle-shift dual clutch transmission
  • Quattro all-wheel drive system
  • Drive Select system offering multiple drive modes
  • Sport differential
  • Multi-link front and rear suspension
  • Full Audi service history 
  • Serviced in December 2023 at 99,990 miles 
Few mid-size coupés share their engines with a genuine supercar, but the RS5 is one of them. Featuring the heart of the first-generation R8, the RS5 delivers an impressive 440bhp to all four wheels, ensuring a potent performance. The Sport Differential system enables up to 85% of the engine's torque to transfer directly to the rear, giving the car the entertainment and agility of a rear wheel drive car. 
The result is a car known for its confident road-holding and engaging dynamics. It can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in just 4.6 seconds. 
The vendor reassures us that there are no mechanical issues or concerns. There is full Audi service history, including a recent service in December 2023 just 300 miles ago. 
Powerful, with discreet but purposeful styling and a handsome and well-appointed interior, this RS5 would make for a great high-performance daily.
