Under the hood, the Audi RS 5 gets a 4.2-liter V8 that puts out a healthy, if not class-leading, 450 hp and 317 pound-feet of torque. Transferring that power to the ground is a seven-speed automated manual gearbox -- the only transmission offered -- that can be run in fully automatic mode or manually shifted via steering-wheel-mounted paddles. Audi's well-tuned "Quattro" all-wheel-drive system rounds out the important powertrain details. In Edmunds performance testing, the RS 5 coupe sprinted from zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds.
