2013 Audi RS 5 Sport Coupe Springs Forward, Releases Video

  One negative of entering a new year in the northern hemisphere on Earth is being plunged right into the worst driving weather. Fortunately, with each passing day, the horizon of spring grows closer eventually allowing the icy, snow-covered roads to clear. Just in time to exploit the bare pavement surfaces in 2012, Audi has prepared their latest, refreshed high-performance street machines. Premiering their new S Line S6, S7 and S8 models at the past Frankfurt Motor Show for public release later this year, 2012 welcomes the infectiously dashing Audi RS5. Both a personal luxury coupe and a high-performance car, the Audi RS5 is reborn this spring.

Still making a firm statement for Audi’s modern luxury, the new affirmative angles of the sport coupe insures the vehicle will be an unmistakable speed demon (at the appropriate obeying the rules of the road).

This whole package rolls on Kahn’s 22″ RSX gunmetal grey alloy wheels. Inside, they did quite a number on the interior as well, giving the front and rear seats black quilted perforated nappa leather with red stitching as well as a speedometer and tachometer in red and cream and Kahn foot pedals. Take a look at the seats below in the gallery – they look great. Of course, with enough money, you can have them make you a completely custom interior as well.

Audi S7 Sportback Slays Vampires in 2012 Super Bowl Ad

Though the ad features an exclusive cast of vampires, these Audi luxury car TV spot have not be the blood-like elixir fans of the myriad of romantic drama-based vampire flicks will enjoy.

As the crowd of vampires celebrate in the darkness, one of their comrades was rushing to the party in the five-door coupe. Showing up with the vampire’s equivalent of a keg of beer (a cooler of blood), the 2013 Audi S7 Sportback illuminates the night with its available LED headlamps. Serving as one of the more recognizable features obtainable on Audi vehicles, the LED headlights are not only four times more efficient than convention halogen light but project a much higher intensity of white light. As the vampire drives his S7 Sportback to the ‘blood-sucker’s’ social gathering, the pure white light energy from the Audi S7 Sportback (an innovation that helped Audi win the 2010 and 2011 Le Mans 24-Hour race) resulted in a side-effect from the partying clan. Once arriving at his destination, the vampire driving his Audi S7 Sportback unknowingly...
