Alongside a new A5 coupe automobile, the German automaker Audi has launched a new S5 for the model year 2008. It will feature a powerful new V8 FSI Configuration, which can produce a torque of up to 354 hp and 325 lb/ft. Similar to the Audi A5, the Audi S5 will feature a Configuration placement directly behind the carâ€™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 driversâ€™ 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.
