This one is plucked right out of Audi USA’s Facebook page. They’re not telling much other than revealling the face of the RS5, which also gives us a peek at the livery. A quick read of the Pikes Peak competitor’s list shows five Audi’s are competing, although none of them are the RS5. A mystery.

We’ve talked about the RS5 before, when it was unveiled in the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Briefly, it the RS5 is powered by a 4.2 FSI V8 that generates 444 hp and 430 Nm of torque. It accomplishes the century sprint in 4.6 seconds. The engine is paired with a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch gearbox. We’re not sure if Audi will be racing the car as ‘stock’ or if the car has been tuned to meet the demands of the race. We hope to get more info near race day, which is this coming Sunday.

Audi USA ended their post with a video of the Sport Quattro S1 racing up to the pinnacle of Pikes Peak. It is quite a spectacle, so enjoy.
