Find of the Day: Twin Turbo Manual Swapped 2015 Audi RS 5 in Audi Exclusive Nogaro Blue

words: Bill, photos: Trever Andrew

Nogaro Blue is one of those colors that looks great on anything but especially better on an RS model. How about an RS model like this RS 5 with 900hp with the capability of up to 1600hp AND a manual swap? Here’s the ad:

Twin Turbo Manual Swapped RS5 in Audi Exclusive Nogaro Blue w/Black Optics. Meticulously built and maintained – only the highest quality parts have been installed. This is a truly unique one-off vehicle that turns heads and is an ultimate sleeper. This vehicle has never seen snow and is not driven in the winter. A recent checkup at Anderson Motorsport this spring included installing a new lightweight battery, leak check, and coolant hose clamp replacement.
If the post is still up – it’s still available.
Tuned on E85 and made 1050AWHP on a glory pull with 800TQ. Currently set at 26PSI making 900WHP and is torque limited in 1st and 2nd gear around 400 to limit transmission wear.
The engine is built for 1600HP if someone wanted to throw a sequential transmission in. I’ve put about 3,000 miles on the build and have had no issues. The car is tuned like OEM and it has a great driver’s feel (no heavy clutch). I don’t have time to enjoy the car and have some other priorities in life right now.
The price is fair considering the mods list and labor involved to build such a machine. If you don’t agree you probably aren’t the right enthusiast for this type of build. Granted whoever gets this car won’t ever understand the amount of stress, time, and money that went into building this. A stock RS5 is worth $50K with Audi Exclusive paint. There are over 1,000 man-hours invested – 200 into the manual swap alone I’m open to offers as well but not really interested in vehicle trades. We all know you don’t get all your money back out of mods and the RS is priced accordingly. Test drives with cash in hand only. Support will be offered in the future for any questions or potential modifications.
