    2012 S5 3.0T!?

    Is the 2012 S5 Coupe finally getting the 3.0T?

    Video of Audi testing the S5 Coupe on the nurburgring (april 2011).

    Doesn't sound like a V8 to me.

    Yup, sure is. Also the ability to get the dual clutch 7-speed and not that horrible Tiptronic.

    Will it be a DCT though?

    The S5 convertible with the 3.0T has the 7-speed dual clutch.

    Only logical that it would follow to the coupe but is the S5 cab with the 3.0T and 7 speed available in the US?

    Audi B8 S5 coupe to finally get 3.0TFSI supercharged V6 in 2012 model with DSG transmission?

    There is no denying the Audi S5 is a great looking car. However, since the launch of the B8 S4 we have been wondering how long it would be until the car received the supercharged V6 from the S4 that not only gets better mileage but is far more mod friendly. Well, the video below shows that Audi is testing the car with the supercharged V6. It is likely this change will take place for the 2012 model year and we are hoping the DSG transmission comes with it.

    Yes, it is available in US. I don't even think a manual is an option, just the 7speed dual clutch.
