This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Audi S5 is the performance-oriented version of the A5. It provides more muscular styling, more power and additional standard equipment. The S5 is powered by a 333-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine. Transmission choices on the Coupe include a standard six-speed manual or optional seven-speed S tronic including manual gear selection and steering wheel paddle shifters. Cabriolet models are outfitted exclusively with the seven-speed S tronic transmission. Audi's legendary quattro all-wheel drive system is standard along with exclusive S5-specific features such as a sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch aluminum wheels, aluminum-optic exterior mirrors, front sport seats and brushed aluminum interior trim elements. An available Prestige package boasts adaptive headlights, MMI navigation plus, Bang & Olufsen premium sound and Advanced Key passive entry/start. Standard safety features include six airbags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, electronic stability and traction control systems, and a tire pressure monitor; rear parking sensors, a blind spot monitor and adaptive cruise control with active braking guard are also available. The Audi S5 receives a freshened exterior and interior design for 2013.
