The California desert couldn't hide the Audi RS5 prototype from nosy spy photographers, who captured engineers working on this super GT. As with any other highly-anticipated car release, car junkies are keen to get their fix of this Audi's features before official details are released to the public.
Jalopnik notices the lack of fog lamps on the RS5 and the extra breathing ducts to cool the engine and brakes that are in their place. The silver side mirrors are an RS trademark, but the Jalopnik writers are anxious to see what's under the hood. The top three choices that writers anticipate will power the RS5 each will deliver over 420 horsepower. If the Lamborghini V10 gets the nod of approval, however, this Audi will have 500 horsepower straight out of the dealership.
