2013 Audi RS 5 at Roebling Road Raceway Video

By Matt Schmitz  on March 7, 2013

If the 2013 Audi RS 5 didn't quite have Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder at "hello," it had him saying "You complete me" within a few turns around the track at Roebling Road Raceway in Georgia. Wiesenfelder was initially enticed by the exterior styling, which is more imposing than the A5 with its "giant" grilles, lower profile and aggressive diffuser. But the S5-besting 450 horsepower courtesy of the RS 5's 4.2-liter V-8, along with the cohesion of the powertrain, brakes, all-wheel-drive system and overall driving dynamics, was what really made this a case of love at first drive. For more of this Roebling romance, watch the video above.
