Report: 2011 Audi RS5 coming to the U.S., will take more than a year

When Audi unveiled the new 2011 RS5 at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, the company wasn’t sure whether or not the model will make it to U.S. shores. Following a little rumor earlier this month that the 2011 Audi RS5 has been confirmed for the U.S., Inside Line reports that the high-performance coupe has indeed been approved by the higher-ups for the stateside.

“We have voted on it and the car is coming over definitely. But,” a product marketing contact from Quattro GmbH said. However, he said that “it will be more than a year out from the start of deliveries in Western Europe.”

Refresher: Power for the 2011 Audi RS5 comes from a 4.2LΒ naturally aspirated V8 making 450-hp and a maximum torque of 317 lb-ft. Mated to a standard 7-speed S tronic, the 2011 RS5 goes from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph (electronically governed).
