So let's take a look at some other RS5 body styles that can now be rendered with 100% accuracy. What's your poison?
Ours is the RS5 Shootingbrake - a made-up name, we know. X-Tomi Design always makes a shooting brake rendering when it's possible, and this one doesn't disappoint. Unfortunately, Audi won't add another body style on the off chance that its customers prefer it over the regular coupe.
Honestly, the 3-door shooting brake could have been the thing that saves the RS5 because nobody else makes a car like this. BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Porsche - they all have performance cars with a regular coupe shape.
And it's not like the Germans don't know what we want because Audi made two TT Shooting Brake concepts, one for each of the past two generations. Alternatively, most of these major automakers also offer a convertible and a longer wheelbase shooting brake model.
By our calculations, the RS5 Cabriolet and Sportback will debut at the next North American Auto Show or sooner. The former is a no-brainer, while the second has been indirectly confirmed by Audi USA officials.
We like how X-Tomi rendered all the cars in red with the same wheels, making it very easy to compare them. Red is a popular car for a new car this year. Civic Type R, Ferrari 812 Supersport, Hyundai i30 Wagon, Kia Stinger, Picanto, Opel Insignia, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, Porsche 911 GT3, Jaguar I-Pace - they all made their Geneva debuts in that color.
