Video: Audi RS5 – One Take
Audi’s RS division is tasked with the job of turning ordinary, though stylish and comfortable, road cars into high-performance track monsters. The latest in the line of RS models is the RS5, the logical upgrade to the stunning S5 coupe. Powered by a 450 hp / 317 tq 4.2L V8, the RS5 can hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, and is given suspension, brake, and wheel upgrades to match, along with more aggressive styling.

Matt runs the RS5 up and down Mulholland Highway’s “Snake” section and brings a thorough review, all in one take.
