Special Edition RS5 Panther Edition will be released in a circulation of 100 copies

Audi has prepared for the American market a limited edition RS5 in a unique dark purple paint with a black crystal effect.

In the future, a rich purple hue interspersed a la black quartz will be available on other Audi models.

Technically, the RS5 Panther Edition does not differ from its analogues with the usual interior and color scheme: under the hood, a 2.9-liter gasoline V6 with supercharged power of 450 horsepower and a torque of 600 Nm. The power unit is paired with an 8-speed automatic tranmission, the drive is full, quattro transmission. From standstill to 100 kilometers per hour, the RS5 in a five-door body accelerates in 3.9 seconds.

Audi promises to release 75 copies of the RS5 Panther Edition in the Sportback and 25 in the coupe. Prices including delivery start from 89 thousand US dollars – 13.8 thousand dollars more than the regular version. The special version will be available in the salons of American dealers from December.
