Audi RS5 2013 After our first drive at the Ascari circuit in southern Spain, we were even a little more encouraged by the RS5 than we had been after our previous track session in the TT RS. Subsequent high-spirited comparison drives on warm and dry surfaces, however, revealed the original 444-horsepower RS 5 as no match for the sheer dynamic satisfaction of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupe and BMW M3 coupe. The RS5, even with its improved lighter and quicker-reacting Quattro, simply had too hard a time resisting prodigious amounts of understeer. We were left begging for effortless and soul-stirring oversteer whenever exactly that would have been called for. Everything else on the RS5 is so good that this one bit just made us whiney. Checkout the Dynamic Video of Audi RS5 2013 showcasing the best performance, engine sound, acceleration, speed, exterior and interior from different angles. Definitely going to like Audi RS5 2013. There is a trade-off, though, and this new drive of the slightly updated 2013 RS5 in wintry white central Sweden brought this to bear more clearly than any other test could. When the going gets tougher and the drive surface is no longer warm and dry – heck, not even asphalt or earthbound – there may be no other sporting coupe we’d rather be driving. If we hit wet and oily pavement in rainy weather, or perhaps ice on a Swedish lake, we want the RS5 wrapped around us if we still want to have a fast, fun ride.
