Last week, Audi announced that the facelifted 2013 A5 and S5 models will begin rolling out onto the US market, with their refreshed headlights and hexagonal grilles. But that also means we have to say goodbye to one of the few naturally aspirated all-wheel drive luxury coupes on the market.
That’s because Audi is finally replacing an engine that has been around since forever, the 4.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 that made 354 horsepower with something that’s more frugal but less impressive, the 333 horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V6.

To properly say goodbye to the loyalty of the eight-banger, Audi introduced a special edition model in the US, which was shown via Facebook. No, you don’t get more power, but you do have the 19-inch Titanium alloys and an interior from Audi exclusive.
