It has been said that beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. I totally agree with Kahlil Gilbran on this. The Audi S5 Quattro definite has a beautiful soul – the engine; amazingly, it also has a build that draws people attention to it.
The S5 Quattro comes branded with superb exterior features. Starting from the rear is the LED taillights and a rear spoiler that is joined to the trunk. The bi-xenon plus headlights and a vertically striped chrome grille stringed by LED daytime running lights, that are stylishly installed at the front of the car, gives it a more aggressive look than most of its predecessors. The headlamps come with a washer. It also has fog lights if visibility dims.
The S5 also comes with special aluminum doorsill inlays, tilting power sunroof with shade, and 19-inch five-double-spoke wheels. It weighs about 3,308 pounds with a wheelbase measurement of about 100.4 inches.
Inside of the S5 Quattro is neatly fitted with suede-like material provided by Alcantara. It is also installed with side bolsters and seat belts. The S5 Quattro is a coupe that sits five adults with three passengers at the rear providing a whopping 52.2 inches of legroom in the front and a skimpy 29.4 inches in the rear. The front seats provide occupants with 51.7 inches of shoulder room and 51.1 inches of hip room.
The S5 Quattro is a high-performance car. It is engineered with the combination of the V8 and the fuel stratified injection technology engine. It is a 4.2 liter engine with eight cylinders that run on all four wheels.
The S5 Quattro can pick up top speed from 0 – 60mph in only 4.5 second. The V8, which maximizes it potential when combined with the innovative FSI direct injection technology, gives the car a supreme free revving character; the response is instantaneous with a continuous power build-up and a lot of thrilling sound.
The S5 Quattro is rated at a top speed of 155mph with a monstrous torque power of 440Nm from only 3,500rpm. It consumes about 21.5mpg of fuel emitting only 298g/km of poisonous CO2.
Like most Audi cars, the security features of the S5 Quattro are superb. At the front of the car is twin airbags for both the driver and the passenger. Also installed is the side and curtain airbags. It is also fitted with ABS stability control. Furthermore, the braking system is uprated high performance brakes that come with black painted calipers. These help bridle the V8’s excesses when on top speed.
The body build coupled with the car’s engine that has been adjusted and shoved way back in the engine bay give the car a good balance. The five link front suspension help further in optimizing balance such that even when the car initiate sharp bends, it maintains its balance.
In every respect, the S5 Quattro has been engineered with a beautiful inside even if the appearance is not as striking as most Audi car. If what you want is a car that can take you from point A to B in the least possible time, then the S5 Quattro is a good choice.
