It was only so many years ago that an Audi RS model seemed like something the US market would never receive. And now, there's quite a few to choose from. 

Thank the high-performance gods.

As Agent 009 noted in this afternoon's thread, Agent 001 is in Phoenix this week to drive the all-new RS5. This RS5 follows up on the highly regarded previous generation model, which was equipped with a high-revving V8 powerplant. Audi's ditched that in favor of a forced induction six-cylinder and shaved off a bit of weight. 

In the pursuit of speed, these sound like good things on the surface, however, the last-gen's V8 motor really defined the RS5 and differentiated it from the competition. Having said that, 001 has been snapping away all day for your viewing pleasure. 

Take a peek at the RS5, from the inside out, and let us know if you have noticed anything for the first time with the all-new RS5.
