Muscle, luxury, wind in your hair

I’ve owned many cars, ranging from Acura to BMW to Volvo. This RS5 convertible is possibly the best overall drivers car I’ve owned. In comfort or Auto, easy daily driver. Dynamic will exhilarate and the exhaust will garner some attention. I get compliments almost every time I take it out. I bought it 2 yrs old w under 10k miles and have had it almost 5. Tires, brakes (pricey), routine maintenance and that’s it. Fast, aggressive when you want it, smooth all the time.


A Wolf in Sheep’s Colthing!

After owning multiple “muscle cars”, the driving experience and looks of this V8 AWD, super car sounding grand tourer is incredible. The Dual Clutch is incredible, the engine sound makes the B&O sound system almost unnecessary...almost. A super car V8 with amazing handling gives you confidence. It’s wide body and shape make it look unassuming, every sleepers dream. I’ll always keep this car because of its NA motor and luxurious interior for the wife. The best Audi Coupe I’ve ever driven. M4, M3...just not comparison!


Best 40K all around luxury sports car in the world

Hard to part with this car.. AWD sports car with luxury and style! and all the TOYS you could want.. Mean exhaust as well! Loved it!!!
