Audi's rowdy yet refined RS 5 is a quintessential demonstration of the automaker's ability to craft vehicles with invigorating performance while retaining a first-class driving experience. The A5's high-performance RennSport variant mines mountains of motivation from a bi-turbo V-6 (444 horsepower, 442 lb-ft of torque) that carries the coupe to 60 mph from a standstill in 3.7 seconds and enables a top track speed of 155 mph. Now, Audi Sport GmbH is turning up the volume and thrills with an all-new Competition package exclusive to the RS 5 for the 2023 model year.

Among the bevy of upgrades in the Competition package is a reprogrammed limiter that raises the RS 5's maximum track speed to an eye-widening 180 mph. To accommodate the increased speed capability, the package adds Phantom Black 5-Y-spoke milled-cut wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, as well as handling upgrades like coilover suspension, front and rear sport sway bars, newly tuned ABS software, and an RS ceramic front brake system that reduces stopping distance (62–0 mph) by up to 6.5 feet. Competition-equipped models sit 10mm lower than standard RS 5 models. And Customers will also be able to manually lower the stance an additional 10 mm, for a 20mm overall lower ride height.

The Competition package also enhances the RS 5s already considerable exhaust note. The intensified sound is the result of reduced insulation between the engine bay and cabin, which shaves an additional 18 pounds of the car's curb weight.
