If looks could kill, then we don’t want any part of this Audi RS5 in our crosshairs.
Those red headlights alone are enough to make us twitch in fear, but for aftermarket company OSS Designs, this build, which it described as a "pissed off stormtrooper," is one it hit completely out of the park.
OSS Designs had some help from Vossen Wheels, but for the most part, this RS5 Coupe had the imprint of OSS through and through.
In itself, the RS5 already looks and performs like a tried-and-true sports coupe, complete with the pedigree of being built by one of the industry’s preeminent automakers in Audi .
But just like every car, there’s always room for some aesthetic and aerodynamic improvements. OSS proved as much with this bodykit that will clearly attract some serious attention from owners of the Audi sports car.
Heck, if we had one of our own, we wouldn’t mind getting this kit installed on it.

Those Headlights Are Evil
The front end updates include a gloss-black finish between the lights and the grille. But the real treat of the program are those smoked headlamp lenses and the red LEDs that succeed in giving the RS5 a more sinister look.
The Rear End
Notwithstanding the side skirts installed on the RS5, the program also did a pretty splendid job on dressing up the exterior, complete with a wider rear fenders with vents, a new rear diffuser and bumper, and a ducktail rear spoiler that supposedly works with the RS5’s factory retractable rear spoiler.
The Vossen Wheels
For its part, Vossen Wheels had to pick the right kind of wheels that would complement that aggressive look of the RS5. 18- or 19-inch wheels were out of the question because they wouldn’t look big enough. Conversely, 22-inch rollers would have been a bit too much. So, Vossen opted for a set of 20-inch VVSCC5 concave wheels that not only looks proportionate to the car’s dimensions, but looks pretty fantastic fitted into the RS5.
The base 2013 RS5 comes in putting down 450 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque from its 4.2=liter V-8 engine. This powerplant mates to a seven-speed S tronic transmission that launches the RS5 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and up to a top speed of 174 mph.
On the inside, you get a laid-out interior that features a leather multifunction steering wheel, aluminum inserts and RS5 badges. Optional items include MMI Navigation, adaptive lighting and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. In the U.S., the RS5 starts at $68,900.
