Audi has gambled on sportiness with the luxury and elegance of its new creature: the S5, a 2+2 Coupe with a marked temperament and heartstopping features.

The revamped Hummer H2 SUV, one of the best off roaders on the planet, has undergone substantial changes in its exterior appearance. It now offers a more luxurious, attractive and functional cabin and its drive train and engine have been significantly improved to make it even more powerful.

 

AUDI S5

Power and Comfort in Perfect Balance

The new Audi SS in the ideal car. Its powerful 354 HP V8 engine, its studied sports chassis and advanced technology make it a true projectile that devours straights and bends with total majesty. Its interior offers luxury and com- fort worthy of a top range saloon. An unusual platform has been used in the development of this 2+2 coupe to bestow it with great structural rigidity and low weight to ensure low fuel con- sumption.

 

Luxurious interior

The cabin is characterized by its attractive design and impeccable finish, which together create a very sporting ambience. The S5 is very spacious and comfortable, even in the rear, thanks to its sports seats.

The car has a highly functional key that elec- tronically communicates with the network when inserted into the ignition. This system is able to memorize all kinds of information such and up to the minute mileage and warning messages generated by the car’s information system.

 

Sporting temperament

Under the skin of this beautiful coupe beats a 4.2 liter FSI engine that develops 354 HP and 440 Nm of torque, which linked to a six-speed manual transmission and permanent Quattro four wheel drive, propels the car from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds and then on to an electronically limited maxi- mum speed of 250 km/h.
