The Audi RS5 Coupe. Its enormous power, electronically tamed, is reflected in its shape: pure muscle, dressed in elegance.
From the first moment you start the engine you will feel the power that's behind the Audi RS 5. It is generated by the 4.2 litre V8 FSI engine. It uses the FSI® direct petrol injection technology which we have been able to transfer from the race track to the road and works with our proven high-rev concept.
In FSI technology, the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber where it is then highly compressed. This creates a very uniform fuel/air mixture, resulting in very efficient combustion and consequently in improved power delivery and power yield. In addition, direct fuel injection cools the combustion chambers so that engine compression can be increased, bringing advantages in both output and torque.
One other element responsible for the irresistible power of the RS 5 is the high-rev concept. It gives you a higher output per litre of displacement combined with smooth power delivery over the entire speed range. The extremely agile and lively power unit responds immediately, whilst also delivering a rich, satisfying sound.
The high-performance engine in the Audi RS 5 permits engine speeds of up to 8,500 rpm. Its maximum torque of 430 Nm is reached at between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm, although at least 90 percent of the power is available over a broad speed range of 3,000 to 8,000 rpm. This allows the RS 5 to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds - and then effortlessly onwards to the 200 km/h mark in a further 10.9 seconds.
