2010 Audi S5 Coupe
We've had two different Audi S5 models in the office this month: this V-8 coupe and also an S5 Cabriolet with Audi's fabulous new supercharged V-6 engine. Whereas the supercharged V-6 makes 333 hp, the V-8 surpasses it with 354; torque figures are identical: 325 lb-ft, but the V-6 delivers it starting lower down in the rev range.
Both powertrains are appealing, but power purists may prefer the coupe's V-8, which is offered with either a traditional automatic or, as on our test car, with a six-speed manual. This makes for an extremely attractive and exciting luxury coupe for the relatively low price of about $58K. This is not small money, but it is a bargain when compared with cars like the BMW 6-Series and the Mercedes-Benz CL, models that arguably have no more prestige than the S5.
Joe DeMatio, Executive Editor
The roar of a premium V-8 engine is simply mandatory in a sports car. After driving the Audi S5 coupe with the "old" 4.2L V-8 back-to-back with an Audi S5 cabriolet with the "new" supercharged 3.0L V-6, I must say I enjoyed the coupe's driving experience more. There's no doubt the V6T makes more sense in today's economy, what with almost equal horsepower (333 vs. 354), better gas mileage (20 mpg vs. 17 city/highway combined), and the V6T doesn't burden you with a gas guzzler tax ($1300). But once you climb behind the wheel of the coupe, fire up that V-8, none of that stuff matters. Instead, you find yourself looking for any excuse to press your right foot to the floor just to hear the engine come to life.
Audi's 6-speed manual transmission is near perfect, with a short, crisp throws. The Audi S5 Coupe is very well balanced and, even with snow tires, provides good steering feedback. The ride is a little harsh thanks to the 19-inch wheels and 35-series winter rubber, but if you like the style of big wheels, you're usually going to pay a penalty in comfort.
Mike Ofiara, Road Test Coordinator
The S5 cabriolet's supercharged V-6 may be more politically correct and an equally good performer, but Audi's 4.2-liter V-8 just speaks to me. It's such a smooth, gorgeous-sounding powerplant, and it revs so quickly that its somewhat peaky characteristics are never an issue. The super-precise six-speed manual makes it even easier and more enjoyable to keep the V-8 on the boil, though it was a bit difficult to put in first gear before it warmed up. Oddly enough, our dearly missed Four Seasons R8 4.2 had the same issue with its gearbox.
David Zenlea, Assistant Editor
Right before the holidays, I spent a week in our Four Seasons Audi Q5; the S5 feels identical as far as the controls are concerned. Everything from the steering wheel to the MMI controller feels spectacular and consistent, which says a lot about Audi's attention to detail. Many other automakers have some inconsistencies between vehicles that are annoying.
As others have said, the S5's V-8 isn't dramatically more powerful than the new supercharged V-6, but it sounds spectacular and performs just as well.
Phil Floraday, Senior Online Editor
It's interesting that Audi still uses the V-8 engine in the S5 hardtop but the new, supercharged V-6 in the S5 cabriolet. It's probably just a matter of rollout, and I would expect the coupe will make the switch next year.
The V-8 does seem a bit like overkill in this car, and its city gas mileage is really poor (14 mpg). But for those who are comfortable with excess, the V-8 does offer rewards. The sound is magnificent, both the low rumble at startup and the rising note as the tach needle climbs. Speaking of which, another delightful aspect of this engine is its free-revving quality. And the manual gearbox encourages you to enjoy it to the fullest.
Like platform-mates the A4 and S4, the S5 has the same, weird power-steering boost curve, with way too much assist at low speeds, transitioning to moderate amounts once you're moving along.
The big, nineteen-inch wheels might make a fashion statement, but their ultra-low-profile, 35-series tires provide precious little cushion for sharp-edged bumps. On this 19-degree day, impacts were sharp enough to rattle the oversize sunroof.
Joe Lorio, Senior Editor
I've said it before, but I still think that the S5 might be the perfect evolution of the classic American pony car: It's got a lovely sounding V-8, a slick yet involving six-speed manual transmission, very comfortable seats, a beautiful cabin, lovely exterior lines, lots of available features, good outward visibility, and space for a cross-continental sprint. Granted, fifty-plus grand is a lot to pay for a superior Camaro, but the S5 is a sweet ride in any case.
I thought that the V-8 was already gone from the S5, but I was pleasantly surprised to find eight refined yet rowdy, high-revving cylinders under the hood of this gorgeous white-on-brown S5. The supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 that's in the S4 sedan and the S5 convertible offers better fuel economy and just as much performance. Still, I think that the V-8 fits just as well, if not better, with this car's character.
I concur with Mr. Lorio that the nineteen-inch wheels can cause sunroof-rattling ride harshness. However, that ceiling-filling glass panel did allow for the light of a full moon to pleasantly shine into the cabin on the clear winter night on which I drove the S5.

First Test: 2010 Audi S5 quattro Cabriolet
Could've had a V-8, but Why?Audi S5 Full Overview
If any engine puts the final nail into the coffin of the mainstream V-8, it's the new 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 in Audi's 2010 S5 Cabriolet and S4 sedan. Rated 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet, it's 20 horses shy of the 4.2-liter V-8's power number and its match on twist. We got a quick sampling of the new engine in the cloth-lid S5.
Our testing reveals the S5 ragtop is just half a second slower -- or less quick -- from 0-60 mph than the V-8 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG and V-8 S5 coupe. In the quarter mile, it's 0.8 second slower than the Benz, 0.5 slower than the S5 hardtop. The Cabriolet's new engine seems poised for the new CAFE order, with 17/26 mpg EPA numbers, versus 16/24 for the S5 V-8 coupe with the S tronic and 14/22 for the manual coupe. (The S4 sedan with the supercharged 3.0 gets 18/27 mpg with the manual; 18/28 with S tronic.) Engine downsizing, even among expensive German performance cars, is the Next Big Thing, and Audi has trumped BMW, which is going back to a six-cylinder engine for the next M3.
The 3.0 TFSI features gas direct injection and the intercooled supercharger -- "T" typically means "turbocharged" in VW and Audi engines, but apparently SFSI doesn't seem sporty enough. While its sound is distinctively blown-V-6, Audi has tuned it to sound the part of a V-8 killer, but with a higher pitch. The brappy soundtrack is accentuated by back-pressure burbles during upshifts of the seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission, when you get aggressive with the throttle.
Audi's facelifted '10 A6 sedan is available with the new supercharged 3.0, detuned to 299 horsepower. Even in the larger, heavier car, the engine is a match for any non-tuner V-8 competition, whether BMW 550i, Mercedes-Benz E550 or Audi's own 4.2-liter-powered A6. And we averaged 21.9 mpg.
The S5 ragtop is more a Mercedes AMG competitor than a BMW M competitor. It's substantially bigger and heavier than a BMW 3 Series/M3, and it feels a bit more relaxed, more like a big AMG Benz. As with all Audis, the brakes feel like they could stop a locomotive on a dime. Our 60-0-mph figure beats the Benz SLK55 by nine feet and a Lexus SC 430 by 14. The seven-speed S tronic remains perhaps the best dual clutch in the industry, with close ratios that will have you upshifting and downshifting maybe a bit too much. While we were unable to figure-eight-test it, the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GTs offer tons of grip and the suspension is sufficiently stiff for flat cornering and slick handling. If you're seeking a more relaxed convertible, look elsewhere. The S5's suspension feels stiff over road imperfections, and the car feels heavy. There is enough suspension compliance for the casual enthusiast, however. Steering is quick and direct, with good feedback. Cowl shake is minimal, but it's there -- this is a unibody car designed first as a coupe, after all.
Because our time in the car this fall missed indian summer, the top was up constantly. Even though the A5/S5 Cabrio is available with head-level heating built into the seats (Mercedes calls its version "air scarf") for extending the top-down season. It's a richly lined, snug top offering the feeling of a coupe. Audi has even added effective rear seat keylights built into the headliner. Both A5 and S5 convertible come with an active roll bar behind the rear seats.
Only a confident and successful (despite the economy) automaker like Audi could delineate its S4 and S5 models like this. The S4 sedan and S5 Cabriolet come with the new engine, but only the S4 couples it to either the seven-speed dual-clutch or six-speed manual. Audi figures, correctly, that ragtop buyers simply aren't interested in a manual (this is a different kind of ragtop buyer than a Porsche Boxster or Mazda Miata customer). The S5 coupe, meanwhile, carries on with the 4.2-liter V-8, with its distinctive sound and power-to-weight advantage and choice of either transmission.
The downsized/supercharged 3.0 continues Audi's aggressive move toward a more balanced diet of power and efficiency. By now, all Audi gas engines have direct injection. The 2.0-liter TFSI turbo four is the predominant choice in the A4 and that engine has been added to the A5 line for '10, lowering the coupe's base price by $4,700. Meanwhile, Audi has dropped the A5 3.2-liter/manual combo. Audi hasn't given up on V-8s, though its upcoming 4.0-liter supercharged V-8 is designed for larger models and probably the R8.
Audi charges a $16,250 premium for the S5 Cabriolet over the base, 2.0 turbo, front-drive A5 Cabriolet ($14,150 over a quattro A5 cab), and it's worth it if you're looking for an aggressive, elegant V-8 convertible with decent fuel economy. Based on our first experience with the 3.0 supercharged V-6, the better drivers' choice might well be the S4 sedan, at $46,725 for the manual, $48,125 for the S tronic. Not only is it cheaper, it's 386 (S4 S tronic) to 463 (S4 manual) pounds (manufacturer's estimate) lighter as well.

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 quattrofour-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 sportback, which was previously not available in North America until the 2018 model year, which was released in the United States in mid 2017. The cabriolets are built at Audi's factory in Neckarsulm, Germany. The Chassis in an S5 and A5 are different.
S5 B8/8T (2007–2012)
The Audi S5 was released in coupé form to the public at the same time as the A5. The Audi S5 Sportback was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, and went on sale in the spring of 2010 with a MSRP of €57,900.
The Audi S5, in comparison to the A5, features a more aggressive body style (typical design for Audi S and RS models) which consists of side skirts, bigger air inlets on front bumper and dual-quad tip exhaust. The S5 includes a string of LED daytime running lights around the bi-Xenon headlamps and a vertically striped chrome grille as well. In many markets, the S5 includes as standard, 19" alloy wheels with a five-parallel spoke design, bigger brakes, heated leather sport bucket seats, and other convenience features, some of which are available only as an option on the A5. Changes for 2010 model year include LED tail lamps, the introduction of Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels and new optional equipment such as leather/Alcantara seats.
Despite sharing the same nameplate, the powertrains were different between the coupé and the Cabriolet/Sportback for the 2010–2012 model years. The 2007–2012 Audi S5 coupé had a 4.2-litre Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) V8 engine that produces 260 kW (350 hp), while the S5 Cabriolet and Sportback have a supercharged 3.0-litre TFSI V6 engine producing 245 kW (329 hp) which is shared with the 2010 Audi S4 3.0 TFSI quattro sedan and avant. The coupé had a choice of either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed Tiptronic, while the Cabriolet/Sportback have the 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission. Despite minor differences in peak power output, both the V8 and the supercharged V6 provide very similar performance.
Sportback Sportback Convertible Coupe
S5 B8.5/8.5T (2013–2017)
The (B8.5/8.5T or Facelift) Audi S5 Coupé uses the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 TFSI engine producing 245 kW (329 hp), previously used in the S5 Cabriolet and S4 Sedan/Avant since the 2010 model year. The other major change under the bonnet is the introduction of stop-start technology for better fuel efficiency. Audi claims an average fuel economy of 8.9 L/100 km (32 mpg‑imp; 26 mpg‑US) (compared to the current 12.6 L/100 km [22.4 mpg‑imp; 18.7 mpg‑US] in the V8 coupe and 10.7 L/100 km [26 mpg‑imp; 22 mpg‑US] in the Cabriolet).
As part of the mid-generational refresh, the S5 undergoes some major front-end changes, including a complete redesign of the headlights – this means new LED DRL's, a brand-new grille loosely based on the 2012 Audi A6 grille and new fog lamps. Audi has also introduced a new rear diffuser that appears to be more cosmetic than the one found on previous models and updated LED tail light design.
Inside, the S5 receives some new features. Dials in the center console get the chrome treatment along with the edges of the buttons for the windows, 4 Audi MMI control buttons and Audi's 3G+ MMI which has a slightly refreshed interface and now features Google Earth maps. Audi has brought the shift knob from the RS5 to the S5. There is a shift from having four buttons down each side of the console, to just two with the addition of a Menu and Car buttons below the MMI control dial (Audi has removed the skip forward / backward buttons that previously occupied the space on either side of the back button). Lastly, a flat-bottom steering wheel style will have a new circular airbag cover as well as piano black trim.
Coupe Coupe Sportback Convertible
S5 B9 (2018–present)
The Audi S5 (B9) is an all-wheel drive coupé, sportback, & cabriolet built by Audi from late 2017, after its unveiling in June 2016. Its sportback trim adds rear doors and a hatchback rear. It is part of the second generation model line following on from the Audi S5 (B8) that had been in production since 2007.
As part of the refresh, the new S5 has undergone some major front and rear end changes, including a drop in weight to 1,615 kg (3,560 lb) (Coupé) and a complete redesign of the headlights and bonnet, LED front and rear lighting, sharper body lines, and a new larger one piece grille. There are also a number of optional safety options available such as drive assist and head up display. Inside, the S5 also receives some new features. A redesigned dashboard and centre console, updated tablet style 8" Audi MMI, Virtual Cockpit (optional), and features Google Earth maps and Apple CarPlay. The new Audi S5 also has new electrically adjustable front heated seats with cross stitching, and has an optional flat-bottom steering wheel style with circular airbag cover as well as a variety of trim options.
Fitted with a completely new and more powerful 3-litre V6 petrol engine, the S5 has direct injection as well as a twin-scroll turbocharger to reduce both weight, and cost. The turbocharger is mounted within the engine V and as a result has reduced turbo lag response times. The quattro all-wheel drive system receives power through a locking centre differential that splits torque sent to the wheels at 40% to the front and 60% to the rear. The system can also divert up to 70% to the front or up to 85% to the rear. 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time is around 4.4 seconds (coupé) & 4.5 seconds (sportback), with a limited top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h), although tests have shown times closer to 4 seconds.
In 2019, Audi introduced a new facelifted version of the B9. In Europe, the new 2019 S5 was only made available with a diesel V6 TDI engine.

Only that he would be godfathers to her children, but also decided to show off to his future godfather, and when she told Artyom about everything, Peter threw angry glances, but Nastya only laughed and continued to tell. More than ten years have passed since then, and finally, I decided to tell my story. In those early days, I was a simple student at the physics and mathematics department at a university in a small town.
