The Audi S5 Sportback (B9) is an all-wheel drive coupé built by Audi from late 2016, after its unveiling in June 2016. Its Sportback trim adds rear doors and a hatchback rear.
It is part of the second generation model line following on from the Audi S5 (B8) that had been in production since 2007.
Fitted with a 3-litre V6 engine, the S5 has direct injection as well as a twin-scroll turbocharger to reduce both weight and cost. The turbocharger is mounted within the engine and as a result has reduced response times.
The quattro all-wheel drive system receives power through a locking centre differential that splits torque sent to the wheels at 40% to the front and 60% to the rear. The system can also divert up to 70% to the front or up to 85% to the rear.
Need for Speed: Payback
The Audi S5 Sportback appears in Need for Speed: Payback following its appearance during the game's reveal trailer, in which the car's interior can be briefly seen with Jess in the driver's seat.
It was later revealed during a developer interview with PlayStation Live at E3 2017 alongside the Buick Regal GNX.
