Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/grouptests/258376/audi_rs5_vs_bmw_m3.html
When it comes to sporting heritage, few marques can match Audi and BMW. Both have succeeded in the white heat of competition, and proved that the race track and rally stage are the best proving grounds for new products.

2013 Audi A5 S5 Sportback
The RS line up of Audi majorly stands for powerful vehicles which are always ready for racing attitude. 2013 Audi RS5 is one of the most awaited cars of the year coming from the German car makers manufacturing units. This is as you would already know is a super sports coupe. The huge power is quite a treat for the owner of the car. The car seems to be very heavy in its built which is not a surprise considering the stance of Audi towards this lineup. At the same time, the car does have the Quattro technology which is quite a thing to be happy about but as we all know it, the technology makes it difficult for the person who is driving the car to corner hence making it a little tough to drive. But one does not have to worry as all the other things in the car are so exciting that one would not mind having this minor steering issue.
The car has been ringing great sales figures around the world which is why the brand has launched the 2013 Audi RS5 as a face-lifted version of the car which is a very ambitious product by the German car maker Audi AG. There is a news which is making rounds in the car circuits that 2013 Audi RS5 coupe model will soon be followed by a convertible model as well for the convertible lovers.
The performance of the car is the major USP. The car is powered by a 4.2 liter V8 engine which can generate a whopping 450 horsepower and 317 pound feet of torque. The engine is mated with a seven speed S tronic dual clutch gearbox. The car is unquestionably an all wheel drive system and it is powered by the much talked about launch control system. The engine produces a roaring sound which symbolizes its power capabilities.
The QUATTRO all wheel drive system of Audi comes with a self locking crown gear center differential which can control and then fetch the amount of torque being sent to the front and rear wheels. Usually the amount of torque distributed between rear and front wheels stands at 60 and 40 respectively. But this could change to 85 percent to the rear and upto 70 percent to the front.
The interiors of the new Audi RS5 are a treat for the user. The seats are covered in Nappa leather or one can even opt for the Alcantara covered seats. Most of the color coordination on the inside is dominated by black. The usage of aluminum on the inside gives it a high end feel which is further pushed up by the RS5 logos.
The exterior of the car are a treat as well. One can see the high end feel from the various RS5 markings on the exterior. The 19 inch wheel base makes the car look real powerful.
Although official price has not been released yet, but we believe the car should be available for around $70000 around March this year.

The Audi S5 Coupé uses the 3.0L Supercharged V6 TFSI engine producing 245 kW, previously used in the S5 Cabriolet and S4 Sedan/Avant since the 2010 model year. The other major change under the bonnet is the introduction of stop-start technology for better fuel efficiency. Audi claims an average fuel economy of 8.9 litres/100 km (compared to the current 12.6 litres/100 km in the V8 coupe and 10.7 litres/100 km in the Cabriolet). Audi also mentions the S5 is a single-frame vehicle (there is no mention of whether this is an aluminum frame to reduce weight and give the car better performance or if it remains a steel frame).
As part of the mid-generational refresh, the S5 undergoes some major front-end changes including a complete redesign of the headlights - this means new DRL's, a brand new grill loosely based on the 2012 Audi A6 grill, new fog lamps. Audi has also introduced a new rear diffuser that appears to be more cosmetic than the one found on previous models.
Inside, the S5 receives some new features. Dials in the center console get the chrome treatment along with the edges of the buttons for the windows and the 4 MMI control buttons. Audi has brought the shift knob from the RS5 to the S5 which is a welcome change to the antiquated, A6 shifter drivers had to deal with in the past. The MMI looks like it's going to be upgraded with changes to the button configuration in the center console. There is a shift from having four buttons down each side of the console, to just two with the addition of a Menu and Car buttons below the MMI control dial (Audi has removed the skip forward / backward buttons that previously occupied the space on either side of the back button). Lastly, a revised steering wheel will have a new circular airbag cover as well as piano black trim.
Sales of updated S5 would begin in 2012 as 2013 model year vehicle in North America.
