Audi has prepared for the American market a limited edition RS5 in a unique dark purple paint with the effect of black crystal. In addition to color, special model Panther Edition will feature 20-inch alloy wheels familiar from European wagon RS4 Avant, matte quattro logo and a special interior design.
In the cabin of the RS5 Panther Edition stand out armchairs, upholstered in dark nappa leather with contrast stitching, black seat belts with red inserts, steering wheel and centre console Alcantara.
In the future rich purple hue interspersed with a La black quartz will be available on other Audi models.
Technically the RS5 Panther Edition does not differ from the analogues with conventional treatments and color palette: under the hood is a 2.9-liter V6 supercharged with 450 horsepower and a torque of 600 Nm. The power unit works in pair with 8-band “automatic” transmission, transmission quattro. From standstill to 100 kilometers per hour RS5 in the five-door body accelerates in 3.9 seconds.
Audi promises to release 75 copies RS5 Panther Edition Sportback and 25 in the coupe. Prices including delivery start at 89 thousand, US $ 13.8 thousands of dollars more than the regular version. The special model will be available in the salons of the American dealers in December.
