The Audi RS 4 Avant and RS 5 Coupé are now available in new Carbon Edition versions. The new special editions, which will not be production limited, add Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) detailing, including a fully exposed CFRP roof in RS 5 versions. The RS 4 is priced at £71,625 OTR and the RS 5 at £75,400 OTR. The first RS 5 Carbon Edition models will arrive in the UK in December, followed by the RS 4 in March 2018.
Beyond the striking, exposed CFRP roof which is reserved exclusively for the RS 5, both new editions incorporate a Carbon Matt Aluminium Styling Pack adding a CFRP finish for the front spoiler (and the rear in RS 5), sill extensions, a diffuser insert and interior inlays along with CFRP door mirror housings.
A matt aluminium finish for the radiator grille with its integral matt titanium quattro logo, for the window surrounds and for the front horizontal under-grille bar complement the carbon detailing, as do privacy glass and larger 20-inch ‘5-arm peak’ design alloy wheels in anthracite matt black, which replace the standard 19-inch design. Red brake callipers are another feature of the Carbon Edition upgrade.
In these special models the engine breathes through an upgraded RS sport exhaust system which amplifies its soundtrack and is controllable via the standard Audi drive select adaptive dynamics system. Carbon Edition models also feature an upgrade to RS matrix LED headlamps.
