Ever since the 2011 Audi RS5 hit the scene in Europe following its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, we’ve been patiently crossing our fingers for the Ingolstadt automaker to offer it in the United States – well, our patience has paid off.

Audi confirmed that it plans on bringing the Audi RS5 to the U.S. market in 2012. Details on equipment levels, pricing and fuel economy standards will be released at a later date.
