2019 RS5 Coupe on order

Hi all, I just wanted to introduce myself to the forum.

I'm hoping to take delivery of my RS5 Coupe at the end of April. I placed the order October 2018, so it's been a bit of a wait.

I had a 2015 S5 and absolutely loved the ride and acceleration, but sold it to cover the cost of this beast.

The basics:

Glacier White Metallic
Black with Crescendo Red stitching
Fine Nappa leather package
Dynamic package
Black optic package
Bang & Olufsen
Dynamic steering

-Wato

Welcome Wato. Sounds like a monster. In classic Glacier too... very nice indeed. Remember to post pics upon collection. Enjoy.

It will be worth the wait.. it is an absolute rocket ship on launch and just keeps going... managed over 140mph on a straight and that was barely pushing it..

I'm assuming you absolutely crushed that Mustang off the line as you have launch control and 4WD?
What about towards the end - did it manage to pull anything back?

Details please! You can't just post a pic like that and tease us!

I know what I want to do, I just don't know how!

Cannot really give too much away, as it was filmed for online content.. Have posted some stuff on another forum, as they provided the introduction to the Lovecars team.

No launch control used on RS5 (frankly didn't need too) it just kept pulling away from the stang consistently. We did 3 drags...it was no real contest The Mustang Bullitt is however a whole bunch of fun. Very happy power sliding and lighting up it's rear tyres (line lock feature)
