For 2013, Audi's S5 is trading its V-8 powertrain for a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6. Before the model changeover, the automaker is offering V-8 S5 loyalists one last version of the coupe.

The new 2012 Audi S5 4.2 Special Edition was first unveiled on the automaker's Facebook page, an increasingly popular place for carmakers to leak news. (Buick Facebook fans saw teaser shots of its new Encore compact SUV before the official reveal at the 2012 Detroit auto show.)

We don't have too much information, but it looks like the 4.2 Special Edition includes the Prestige Package and adds distinctive dark silver paint, unique five-spoke wheels, black and white leather interior trim, carbon fiber inlays in the cabin and “Audi exclusive” badging.

Audi says only 125 units will be offered; no word yet on pricing. The 2012 Audi S5 coupe with the Prestige Package starts at $60,200, excluding the $875 destination charge.
