2013 Audi RS5 Exhaust Note in Exhilarating Video

Audi released a video of their new generation RS5 during some glorious snow drifting and exhaust-burning desert runs. Liken, if you will, an engine to a guitar. Within that vein, it seems Audi has mastered tuning their instrument.

The new generation S5 made some Audi enthusiasts nervous and sent others into an excited frenzy. Why, you might ask? The German automaker decided to swap their throaty V8 for a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that makes more power, yes, but might lack the allure some drivers may crave. Thankfully the RS5 featured in the clip, does actually keep the up-rated V8 engine.

Enjoy the eye and ear candy below.

Audi RS5 Tuned to 500-Horsepower by SKN [video]

While we’re still anxiously awaiting the release of Audi‘s RS5 in America, tuners in Germany have already gotten their hands dirty with the car and finding gobs of horsepower with very little effort. While the stock 450-hp figure already seems potent enough, especially given how beautiful the RS5’s styling is, SKN has already taken the 4.2-liter V8 past 500-hp with a simple ECU re-tune and Milltek Hockenheim Edition exhaust system.

Actual horsepower figures and pricing hasn’t been released by SKN yet, just that they’re already finding the real potential of the RS5. Suspension wise they lowered the car on a set of Bilstein PSS10 coilovers and mated a set of 20-inch BBS CH-R wheels onto each corner. The 20×10.5-inch wheels are wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero rubber in a 285/30/20 size.

It’ll be a little bit longer until we’ll see the RS5 in America, and with the price tag it comes with it’ll be interesting to see how popular it’ll become. But there’s no question that we should be seeing plenty more from the aftermarket for Audi’s new player in the sports coupe segment.
