I love the Audi Exclusive Nardo grey exterior on this 2014 Audi RS5. Similar to BMWs individual program Audi allows owners to choose exterior colors that normally not available and this RS5 is been painted a creamy and rich looking grey.
This Audi RS5 was a demo vehicle for TAG Motorsports in California. I recently featured their Brabus E63 wagon a few weeks back and though this build isn’t as crazy as the Mercedes this RS5 been upgraded with a focus towards aesthetics over performance.
The Audi RS5 is the highest performing variant of the B8 chassis and uses a naturally aspirated V8 with an all-wheel-drive layout. The 4.2L engine makes 450hp with 317 lb-ft of torque and unfortunately a 7-speed dual clutch automatic is the only transmission offered.
Even with a fairly high curb weight of 4,000 pounds, the large V8 can muscle this RS5 from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds and the standing quarter mile is completed in 12.5 seconds – pretty impressive numbers.
The aftermarket parts chosen might hurt performance but does a lot to improve the bland styling of the RS5. A set of 21″ Voseen SPS306 forged wheels in a satin bronze finish stands out first but if you look closely you’ll notice this Audi is sitting on airbags with an Accuair B8 sport kit allowing the driver to choose the ride height of this car. Behind the nicely styled wheels are Audi’s famous wave rotors with custom painted calipers with the orange hue that was taken from a Lamborghini.
