The (B8.5/8.5T or Facelift) Audi S5 Coup? uses the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 TFSI engine producing 245 kW (329 hp), previously used in the S5 Cabriolet and S4 Sedan/Avant since the 2010 model year. The other major change under the hood is the introduction of stop-start technology for better fuel efficiency. Audi claims an average fuel economy of 8.9 L/100 km (32 mpg-imp; 26 mpg-US) (compared to the current 12.6 L/100 km [22.4 mpg-imp; 18.7 mpg-US] in the V8 coupe and 10.7 L/100 km [26 mpg-imp; 22 mpg-US] in the Cabriolet).
As part of the mid-generational refresh, the S5 undergoes some major front-end changes, including a complete redesign of the headlights ? this means new LED DRL’s, a brand-new grille loosely based on the 2012 Audi A6 grille and new fog lamps. Audi has also introduced a new rear diffuser that appears to be more cosmetic than the one found on previous models and updated LED tail light design.
Inside, the S5 receives some new features. Dials in the center console get the chrome treatment along with the edges of the buttons for the windows, 4 Audi MMI control buttons and Audi’s 3G+ MMI which has a slightly refreshed interface and now features Google Earth maps. Audi has brought the shift knob from the RS5 to the S5. There is a shift from having four buttons down each side of the console, to just two with the addition of a Menu and Car buttons below the MMI control dial (Audi has removed the skip forward / backward buttons that previously occupied the space on either side of the back button). Lastly, a flat-bottom steering wheel style will have a new circular airbag cover as well as piano black trim. bugatti wallpapers, supercars, mazda wallpapers, Audi S5 wallpapers, porsche wallpapers

On February 27, 2009, Nismo announced a partnership with British racing team Gigawave Motorsports to enter a GT-R in four races in the 2009 FIA GT Championship season. The entry did not compete for championship points, but was used by Nismo to refine the performance of the GT-R for future customer teams to use the car in the planned FIA GT1 World Championship in 2010. Nismo driver Michael Krumm and Gigawave driver Darren Turner would co-drive the GT1 GT-R.
The Sumo Power GT-R won the 2010 RAC Tourist Trophy at Silverstone Circuit as part of the FIA GT1 World Championship on May 2, 2010.
The 2011 season saw Swiss Racing Team switch to Lamborghini which left Sumo Power running four GT-Rs, two under the Sumo Power GT name and two under JR Motorsports. JR Motorsports with the drivers Michael Krumm and Lucas Luhr won the Drivers Championship for the 2011 season, gaining 3 wins and 1 pole position in 10 races.
