    • Official: The new facelifted 2013 Audi RS5, 450 horsepower, 108 hp per liter, and 8250 rpm redline - Pictures and details

      Well, here it is. We knew it was coming and the final result is stunning. The revised headlights and taillights make for what looks like a far more modern and aggressive car. Inside, the interior is slightly revised and the two tone color scheme and seats are simply gorgeous. The seats will likely not make their way to the USA due to crash test standards. Under the hood is the same old 4.2 liter V8 which has been tweaked a bit more to 450 horsepower. That makes for 108 horsepower per liter and it revs to 8,250 rpm. And yes, it has a dual clutch transmission. Well done Audi!

        It will be slow for current standards but hey, this is our last high revving NA V8 available in something other than a Ferrari.

        Looks stunning and that old ass V8 is so sonorous!

        Outdated? Sure. Unrefined? Not in the least bit!
