The Audi S5 is the German luxury automaker's factory tuned version of their sleek two door fast back and features distinct bold bodywork, boxed fenders, 19 inch wheels and a 4.2 Liter FSI V8 making 349 HP and 325 lb-ft of torque when it was introduced in 2008. Future S5 luxury sports cars will be powered by a 3.0 Liter supercharged V6 making a more efficient 333 HP, competing head to head with the BMW M3.

Here, the ground clearance is reduced by about 25 millimeters as compared to the standard model.
