Alongside a new A5 coupe automobile, the German auto maker Audi has launched a new S5 for the model year 2008. It will feature a powerful new V8 FSI Configuration, which can produce torque of up to 354 hp and 325 lb / ft. Similar to the Audi A5, the Audi S5 will feature an Configuration placement directly behind the car’s front wheels.
This should result in an ideal balance of weight, however like all Audi cars in the S series, the S5 boasts a sportier suspension, as well as unique rear and front fascias. High performance brakes and wheels make the Audi S5 a beauty to drive. It has also received rave reviews for its carbon fiber interior elements. The Audi S5 can be acquired in either a DSG gearbox or as a six speed manual transmission.
Audi hopes to answer drivers’ more aggressive steering demands with the help of its wide 108.3 inch wheelbase. This is bound to be the widest wheelbase in the sport coupe segment.
What is more, the Audi S5 will feature a sound system from Bang & Olufsen that comes complete with 465 digitally amplified watts as well as twelve speakers, not to mention noise compensation that is microphone based.
