In January, popular Indian playback singer Krishnakumar Kunnath bought a new RS5 Sportback, known as KK. He chose the Tangi Red Paint Scheme. The RS5 is one of the best 4-door sports coupes. Now, RS5 has been spotted on the streets of Mumbai.
The video was uploaded to YouTube by CS 12 Vlogs and we can see RS5 clearly. Audi RS5 is priced at Rs. 1.04 crore ex-showroom. We don’t know much about K-owned cars. However, the RS5 indicates that KK’s car tastes good.

The Audi RS5 comes with a 2.9-liter V6 petrol engine that is twin-turbocharged. It gives maximum power of 450 PS and maximum torque output of 600 Nm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission that drives all wheels via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Being a sports coupe, Audi has tuned the Quattro system to send 60 percent of the power to the rear wheels under normal driving conditions. The RS5 can hit a ton in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 250 kmph which is electronically limited. This goes against the BMW M3 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C63.
Being an “RS” model, the RS5 looks very aggressive. It gets a huge hexagonal grille, muscular bumper and RS5 badging on the grille. Audi always has great looking headlamps and the RS5 is no exception. On the side, there are alloy wheels, frameless doors and a fastback design. We don’t get many fastback cars nowadays, so the RS5 stands out from the crowd.
Despite being a sports coupe, there is plenty of animal comfort. You will find a digital instrument cluster called the Audi Virtual Cockpit. Being an RS model, it has an RS-specific view mode that shows the tachometer horizontally. Featuring three-zone climate control, ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, and heated and auto-dimming outside rearview mirrors. Features a touchscreen infotainment system with a flat-bottom steering wheel, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, keyless entry, push-button to turn the engine on / off, cruise control, rear parking camera, parking aid plus, a multi-function steering wheel. And much more.
The dashboard layout is quite simple with a design that looks like air vents are spread across the dashboard. There are RS-specific seats that get diamond stitching and electrical combinations. RS seats are more sporty than regular seats, they keep people in place as they go through the corners, but they are also comfortable enough for long journeys.
For safety, you’ll find ISOFIX child seat mounts, front and screen airbags, seat belt reminders, a tool kit, front and rear disc brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system, engine immobilizer, speed limiter, heel hold assist and more. .
