Seller offering a 2014 Audit RS5 with 5,585 miles and buy-it-now price of $42,500. If you’re not familiar with the RS series Audi, these are worth paying attention to. On the outside, the RS5 is only distinguished from the mere A5/S5 with badging, 20″ 5-spoke wheels, lower hanging front fascia with large air inlets, and larger rear exhaust. It’s under the hood that counts.
Developed by quattro GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Audi, the naturally aspirated 4.2L V8 the RS5 produces 450-hp, 317 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and a electronically controlled top speed of 174 mph (0.4 seconds shaved off the S5). Compare that with the A5 which is equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, 220-hp, 258 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 of 6.1 seconds. The RS5 can operate in fully automatic mode or via shift paddles on the steering wheel.
The RS5 is the only model in which the Blue Pearl paint with Black Optic package was made available. The Black Optic package features a black optic grille with high-gloss surround and gloss-black window surround. Some say the RS is too understated and we think gives the vehicle a little more “pop”.
The interior of the RS is upgraded from the A and S series with premium fit and finishes (i.e. higher quality leather with contrast piping), signature flat-bottom steering wheel, carbon inlays, climate-controlled seats with optional neck-level heating vents for added comfort (not sure if this one has the later option). Seller has the upgraded Bang & Olufsen sounds system, sport exhaust system, side assist and rearview cameras. Comes with a clean CarFax. This 2014 Audi RS5 is for sale in Kansas City, Missouri.
