TheCarConnection.com's spies have caught Audi engineers working on an RS 5 prototype in the California desert.

The 2010 Audi RS 5's aggressively revised front fascia carries all of the menacing design traits of Audi's other RS models, but it looks particularly fetching on the already seductive A5 coupe. The fog lamps have been removed in favor of extra breathing ducts to cool the engine and brakes--just as on Audi's recently-released RS 6. This prototype doesn't yet have all the expected RS cues--namely the signature dual oval exhaust tips (it still has the quad oval tips from the S5)--but it is wearing silver side mirrors (another of Audi's RS design signatures). The RS 6 sports some subtly flared bodywork, but it remains to be seen whether the RS 5 will get a similar treatment.

The other questions obviously focus around what's under the hood. The Audi RS 6 is powered by the latest direct-injection, twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V-10, generating 580 hp at 6,250 rpm with 479 pound-feet of torque at just 1,500 rpm. A similar application in the RS 5 would obviously be most welcome.--KGP Photography
