A powerful meaning takes shape.
Some symbols are so imbued with meaning that they don’t need to be defined. Others, like the RS badging, have defined “racing sport” for generations.
2018 Audi RS 5 Exterior design
APPEARANCES CAN BE INTIMIDATING.
With the Audi RS 5, the designers drew inspiration from the wide flanks and prominent air intakes of the Audi 90 quattro® IMSA GTO racecar. The sculpted edge along the top of the flared fenders continue the theme found on Audi Sport® competition cars of the past, with a modern interpretation moving it forward.
RS design-specific elements
Wider, more muscular front and rear fenders are exclusive to the Audi RS 5 and help accentuate its sporting presence. Massive honeycomb front air intakes and distinctive vents along the outer edges of the taillights allude to an expanded performance envelope.
RS design Singleframe® grille with quattro® script
A Singleframe grille with quattro® script and a flat, wide design complements the broader fenders of the Audi RS 5. The honeycomb pattern is a cue of Audi Sport® styling.
High-gloss Black side sill blades and rear spoiler
Running along the bottom edge between the wheels are two side sill blades in High-gloss Black with quattro® script, a trademark Audi design element. The neatly integrated trunk-mounted rear lip spoiler is also finished in High-gloss Black. The sheen of High-gloss Black complements the luster of the vehicle’s overall finish.

LED exterior lighting
