Audi has released details of the new member of the RS high performance family before its official debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

It’s the 2011 RS5 coupe, which clearly guns for the BMW M3, and because it’s facing such a tough competition, it’s very well prepared!

Audi has given this car a new version of their 4.2 lite V8 with 450 hp and 430 nm of torque. That is 30 more than the M3 and thanks to its 7-speed S Tronic gearbox and Quattro system it is also quite fast to 100 km/h at 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h, but you can ask Audi to remove the limiter so you can hit 280!

It also gets high performance brakes (ceramic discs as option) and 19-inch light weight alloys (20-inch optional) with fat high performance tires.

You may also adjust the suspension and chassis setting through the new drive control switch which offers auto, comfort, and dynamic. Audi promises a perfect sporty handling.

Other features of the RS5 worth mentioning include the retractable boot lid wing, sport bucket seats, and LED head and taillights.
