2010 Audi S5
The Audi S5 is one of the most breathtaking coupes on the road today. When it drives towards you, you cannot help but stare at her beautiful eyes and sexual curves. The 2010 S5 features Audi's direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 engine, basically a detuned version of the one found in the RS4 and R8, which produces 354hp and 325lb-ft of torque instead of the 420 hp /317 lb-ft.
Just like the A5, the new S5 features an engine placement behind the front wheels, resulting in better weight distribution between the axles, which results in better handling. The A5 and S5 sit on Audi’s newest platform, which is called the B8. The S5 can climb from 0- 60 mph in under five seconds, and hit an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
Along with all the Audi “S” models, the S5 has sportier suspension, unique front and rear fascias, performance wheels and brakes, carbon fiber interior elements, and the choice of a six-speed manual or DSG gearbox.
Unlike most sports coupes, the S5 is offered exclusively with all-wheel drive, making it more reliable on the road and a better choice for those who live in areas where it snows. The Quattro system is tuned to provide a more sporting driving experience thanks to its 40/60 front to rear bias.
The car features an optional Bang & Olufsen surround sound system with 14 speakers and 505 digitally amplified watts. Microphone-based noise compensation ensures optimum sound under varying road conditions and speeds.
Other major options include a navigation system with coverage for all of North America, a 7-inch touchscreen display and six-disc CD changer, as well as a technology package comprised of a parking assistance system with rear view camera, adaptive headlights and a keyless entry and vehicle start system.
