At least 450hp, 0-100km/h in less than 5 seconds

Audi's 2010 RS5 coupe has once again been spotted undergoing high performance testing on Germany's famous Nürburgring.

While the new photos don't reveal any additional details, the matte black paint scheme is simply out of this world. Up front, the RS5 is distinguished by larger, more aggressive air intakes and a revised mesh grille. Other styling tweaks include 15-spoke alloy wheels, a more pronounced rear spoiler, and a massive dual exhaust system.

As we have previously reported, the RS5 will come equipped with a powerful 4.2-liter V8 engine with at least 450hp (331kW). Boasting quattro AWD and a standard six-speed manual transmission (a seven-speed R Tronic gearbox will be optional), the RS5 is expected to accelerate from 0-100km/h in less than 5 seconds. Audi will likely limit the top speed to 250km/h (155mph), but aftermarket tuners will surely fix that.

Look for the 2010 Audi RS5 to be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

[UPDATE 18.08.2009] five more photos added to article.

There's 7 speed on the R-Tronic gearbox? Isn't it suppose to be S-Tronic?

So far Audi is the only one who brings out a new amg and M competitor without turbo's. I loved this engine in the RS4 and this one can only be better.

 M! M!
so little interest in this car, as seen by number of responses here. audi should consider making their RS's a little more radical. they have the S' to be mildly sporty.

"larger, more aggressive air intakes"..From the pictures, they don't even look like proper air intakes, just plastic covers designed to look like intakes. Even the A5 and S5 don't have air intakes besides the front grille. They're just plastic covers made to resemble air intakes.

WCF its probably worth noting the front and rear fender changes/extensions (and therefore wider track) for those are clearly not the standard items!
