Appreciation for Depreciation: 2010 Audi S5

The Audi S5 is a two-door version of Audi’s pavement pounding S4 sport sedan, but the S5 didn’t get the upgraded 3.0T supercharged V6 in 2009 and instead lived with the 4.2 liter V8 shared with the R8 through the 2012 model year.  It isn’t a bad thing to have a screaming 7000 rpm V8 instead of a boosted V6, and the S5 seems to have been hit with the magic depreciation train…which isn’t a bad thing if you are in the market for a fast two door. Find this 2010 Audi S5 offered for $16,351 in Beverly Hills, CA via craigslist.

The quality and design of all S5’s are phenomenal. There are many examples of the S5’s you can find that are in much better condition than other make/models (such as M’s or AMG’s) better yet the S5 carries less the cost of ownership and has a number of features you cannot get in other enthusiast vehicles.

Audi S5’s between 2008-2012 are equipped with a powerfully-reliable naturally aspirated 4.2L V8 (derived from Audi’s R8 Supercar) paired to a very responsive 6-Speed manual transmission that distributes a smooth grunt of power up to 7,000 RPM to Audi’s legendary All-Wheel Drive system (Quattro) – probably know to be the best AWD system on the market! – Better yet, the beautifully aerodynamic body style of the coupe on this particular powertrain inspires great confidence in road handling with a remarkable quality assembly both inside and out that provides you with a smooth-comfortable ride even with all the windows down. This Audi’s take on a grand touring muscle car that is versatile like no other car and can handle any roads from lighted city streets, tight canyon roads, sweeping open roads, and the elements.
