Definition of Audi Sport®

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.

2019 Audi RS 5 Exterior design

With the Audi RS 5, the designers drew inspiration from the wide flanks and prominent air intakes of the Audi 90 quattro® IMSA GTO race car. The sculpted edge along the top of the flared fenders continues 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.

Carbon side sill blades and rear spoiler

When equipped with the available Black optic carbon package, the RS 5 gets a carbon front blade, a rear diffuser blade and mirror housings to showcase its sport pedigree. Running along the bottom edge between the wheels are two side sill blades in Carbon, an essential Audi Sport® element. The neatly integrated trunk-mounted rear lip spoiler is also finished in Carbon.

2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback Exterior design
It might seem crazy, but for the right driver, the Audi RS 5 Sportback is our most practical vehicle. For them, early arrival[2] is sensible, and dashing looks become functional with a distinctive five-door design.

Wheel options

You can choose to equip your Audi RS 5 with three available wheel options, including the 5-arm-trapezoid design wheel shown here. The RS 5 Coupe and the all-new RS 5 Sportback present different wheels, and with both measuring 20 inches in diameter, the shape and machining of the spokes give the impression of forward motion. 275/30 R20 summer performance tires are 10mm wider than the standard 265/35 R19 tires.[1]

Black optic carbon package

Under the right circumstances, carbon can be the strongest naturally occurring substance on the planet. Carbon exterior side mirror housings and front and rear blades, along with your choice of unique 20" wheel packages, make a powerful declaration of sport aesthetics. And with a carbon rear lip spoiler and summer performance tires,[1] your strong statement leaves the realm of metaphor to become something real.
Matte Aluminum optic carbon package
Carbon and Matte Aluminum optic touches combine to strike an elemental equilibrium of sport and luxury. Carbon exterior side mirror housings, rear lip spoiler and side sills balance with 20" Silver finish wheels to give the sporty looks of your Audi RS 5 a unique chemistry.
