Spy Video: Audi RS5 Caught Undisguised at Nurburgring

The 2010 Audi RS5 has been caught again on video testing at the Nürburgring. It looks almost completely undisguised which leads us to believe a public unveiling is not far off. Providing a harmonious soundtrack to accompany the video wasn't going to be necessary as the RS5 engine already comes with such a beautiful roaring sound.

Although specs are still some way from being released, it's known that power comes from a twin-turbo 4.2-litre V8 with around 450hp (330kW). Quattro 4WD is standard, as is a 6-speed manual gearbox. A 7-speed double clutch R tronic is a possibility given that rivals also employ these new double-clutch changers. The RS5 should be able to rush from 0 - 100km/h in about 5 seconds with a top speed limited to 250km/h.

Enjoy the video clip while waiting for July 2010 (according the Audi 2012 rollout schedule) when the RS5 hits the streets.

It will be more powerful than this - or it will have no turbochargers. And they have to have the RS4 and RS5 produced at the same time. They are to each other what the 3 Series Coupe/Convertible is to the 3 Series Saloon/Touring.

Not enough powerful. And secon thing: are they going to have that "tradition" that only one RS model is producent at the time? Well I would like to RS4 more, instead of this..

RS5 is not going to be as good looking as Jags latest XFR is!

Wow, this car is amazing, though I wish the lights and rear end were a bit less boring. Can't wait to see what the aftermarket companies can turn it into.

truth be told the rendering looks better than the real thing. Not too happy with the look of the headlights and front bumper.
