Cars.com's test cars are parked amid a vast sea of vehicles in a multistory parking tower; Audi's RS 5 was easy to spot with its unmistakable LED headlights, aggressive grille, carbon fiber accents and Sepang Blue pearl paint. Likewise, its throaty exhaust note is hard to miss.
Our test RS 5 coupe Quattro started at $68,900 but had an as-tested price of $77,320, including destination, thanks to goodies like the pearly paint, MMI Navigation Package, Titanium Package and sport exhaust system. Even without the options, it commands a hefty premium over the S5's $51,795 starting price and makes the A5, which bases at, $38,745, look like a bargain.
