This all-wheel drive quattro sports coupe takes the A5 platform and gives it a sport suspension, larger 18-inch alloy wheels with performance tires, performance brakes, a multi-link front and rear suspension, and an engine mounted behind the front wheels for a more balanced ride. The brand new 2008 Audi S5 is poised to strike with its 354-hp 4.2-liter FSI V8 and 6-speed manual. A 6-speed automatic will also be available.
The quattro system comes with a center limited-slip differential and front and rear locking differentials. Extra stability comes with standard traction control, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, stability control, and dual front and front-side airbags. Other safety features include foglights, xenon headlamps with washers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic headlights, and a tire monitor. To complete the sporty look, the 2008 S5 boasts body-colored moldings and side sills, a chrome-trimmed grille, four exhaust pipes, a rear spoiler, and a front air dam.
The coupe seats four, with rear seats split-folding down onto a 16.1-cubic-foot cargo area. A ski bag is included to keep wet snow off the leather upholstery. It comes well equipped with full power features, an 8-way power driver's seat with memory settings, remote entry, cruise control, push-button ignition, a tilt sunroof, automatic dual-zone climate control, leather trim, and Recaro leather seats. Other conveniences include Smart Key, intermittent wipers, and a trip computer. For entertainment, you get a 6-CD/MP3 player and satellite radio. Options add Alcantara leather, wood or carbon fiber trim, and a navigation system.
