From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Audi S5 is the high-performance variant of Audi’s A5. It is also the coupé, cabriolet, and five-door fastback versions of the fourth generation (B8) Audi S4 saloon and estate models.

Like all Audi “S” cars, they are only available as standard with Audi’s quattro four-wheel drive (4WD) system, here in S5 using a Torsen-based centre diff system.

Most versions of the S5 are manufactured at Audi’s plant in Ingolstadt, Germany; they are available as a coupé, cabriolet, and five-door fastback (the latter not available in North America). The cabriolets are built at Audi’s factory in Neckarsulm, Germany.
