2012 Audi S5 Coupe by Eibach

When Audi’s 2012 lineup was revealed, there were very little changes made to the car’s overall look. Aside from a few tweaks here and there, Audi’s main concern for the new model year S5 was the downsizing of the engine, from an eight cylinder to a 333 HP 3.0-liter V6 TFSI powerplant that produces less horsepower than its predecessor. German tuner, Eibach, didn’t have a problem with that as the V6 provided equal performance numbers to the 2011 model while also improving the car’s efficiency rating. What they did have a problem with, however, was the car’s handling, so they decided to generate more power with an optimum suspension set-up themed "Inspired by motorsport – Performance for the road."

This new suspension system is composed of Pro-Kit Performance Springs and specially adapted mono-tube gas pressure shock absorbers from Bilstein. The best part of this new system is that it offers a slightly lowered center of gravity that makes the car look even more like the Audi A5 DTM version.

The "Inspired by motorsport – Performance for the road" theme is extended to the exterior of the vehicle with a cool white finish combined with red graphics. Eibach also provided three different wheel options: Show & Shine for representative purposes, Performance for everyday use, and High Performance for the racetrack.

The multipurpose function of this is accentuated by each of Eibach’s modification. Now, it’s even more efficient to use.

Eibach’s intention is for it to become beyond multipurpose.

The S5 Coupe is originally multipurpose, and Eibach just added more components for it to become a car of all purpose.

I like how Audi understands that owners may want to use it in versatility; after all, this coupe is like multipurpose too.

Isn’t it great that its engine has an option whether to get to a performance-level or for a practical use?

I think Eibach’s notion is perfect, judging S5’s appearance. It literally appears to be a mix of something that belongs to both the race track and normal road. The engine helps it to cope with the adjustment of its two environment, impressively.
