Performance Audi Q5 Test Mule Spied

Prototype

Don't let the TDI badges fool you, the Q5 seen here has something else under its hood. Our first clue is the quad exhaust, two more that the TDI or standard TFSI have. This doesn't, by itself, tell us whether we're looking at an SQ5 or an RSQ5, but there is another clue which might be helpful. The license plate starts with an "HN". This is a designation Audi tends only to use on RS models, the A and S models get "IN" plates. Photos courtesy of quattroholic.com
