Audi S5 Coupé - Eibach project car

I'm a big fan of BMW, but if there's one car that's able to drag me away and over to the Audi camp, it would be the Audi S5 coupé. This is my personal opinion of course, but with the design of the Audi A5 and S5 coupé, I think Audi has nailed it. They simply look stunning whichever way you look at them.

On to performance then - with a 4.2 liter V8 this S5 certainly is no slough. The engine develops 354 hp at 7000 rpm, more then enough to burn some rubber on the track, or do some spirited driving on some B-roads.

Eibach took the S5 even further: they did not touch the engine, but decided to generate more power by improving the car's handling. An optimum suspension set-up was added, and the car was fitted with the Eibach B12 Pro-Kit, the Anti-Roll-Kit Performance Sway Bars and the Pro-Spacer Wheel Spacer. Several different wheel/tyre combinations are available, depending on what you'd like to do with the S5.

For now though, all I'll do is look at it for a bit more...
