RS Audi

At the risk of inducing a mild state of déjà vu, we again find ourselves saying that we’re never quite sure what kind of car we’re going to get from an RS Audi: a smooth-riding, agile M3 beater such as the RS4, or something altogether less appealingly sophisticated, like the early RS6.
This is the second RS model to rival the current BMW M3 since the demise of the RS4, which was short lived but shone brightly during its all too brief time in production.
Like the RS4, the RS5 has a 4.2-litre V8 engine and permanent quattro four-wheel drive. Unlike the RS4 saloon and estate, the RS5 comes only as a two-door coupé.
What we know about this car already is that it posted a very respectable performance at our recent Britain’s Best Driver’s Car contest, impressing our testers to the extent that many thought it the best front-engined Audi since the RS4.
Whether it’s better than that model, though – or indeed better than the M3, which has been subtly yet convincingly revised since it and an Audi last locked horns – is the subject of today’s test.

I work for the VAG, I love audis, especially the RS5 but I've got to ask.... wtf does any of that have to do with Efficiency or EM'ing??

talk about its direct injection FSI engine by all means and how it does produce some of the lowest Co2 figures in that class or that even though it weighs close to 2 tonnes it can still provide respectable fuel economy from a v8 but otherwise put the advertising elsewhere
good things come to those who wait, sh*t turns up pretty much instantly
