Once you lay eyes on the S5's bodacious bodywork and hear the sweet sounds of its V8, you might decide to just buy one for yourself. Its sexy shape and muscular stance are irresistible. Audi designers really know how to evoke an emotional response with their designs.
The Audi S5 is a sharp-handling coupe, with nicely controlled body roll and tenacious AWD traction.
The mandatory 4.2-liter V8 is a revelation -- acceleration is authoritative, yet it never seems to be working hard, emitting an intoxicatingly exhaust burble from idle to redline that will have you driving with the windows down in the rain. The manual transmission features long but reasonably precise throws.
Inside, the Audi S5 sports a cockpit with a tight feel and well placed controls on the dash. There are plenty of buttons for radio controls and a generous application of aluminum and chrome trim, too, making the interior stunning, and the red leather to amplify everything.
I chose this car because cars that are all show and no go do nothing for me, so I'm happy that the Audi S5 packs enough power to back up those sexy lines. It's not a brutal muscle car, but rather a well-toned athlete. And that performance is perfectly in line with the car's looks.
