In a second era of a Audi RS 5 Coupé, Audi Sport is presenting a initial indication to underline a stream RS settlement idiom. The designers drew impulse for a automobile from a particular motorsport sum of a Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO. Massive atmosphere inlets with a honeycomb structure customary of RS models impersonate a front finish of a car. The Singleframe radiator grille is most wider and agree than in a bottom model. Additional atmosphere inlets and outlets are located subsequent to a headlights and back lights. Tinted bezels support a discretionary Matrix LED headlights. quattro blisters on a flanks stress a conspicuous bulges over a circle arches, that have been widened by 15 millimeters (0.6 in). As standard, these residence 19-inch fake aluminum wheels, with 20-inch wheels accessible as an option. A sporty end to a car is supposing by a RS-specific diffuser insert, a oval tailpipes of a RS empty complement and a surface-mounted spoiler lip. With a length of 4,723 millimeters (15.5 ft), a new RS 5 Coupé is 74 millimeters (2.9 in) longer than a prior model.

The 2.9 TFSI V6 bi-turbo engine, that Audi grown from a belligerent up, offers pointy increases in energy and potency as good as an flawlessly full-bodied RS sound. It delivers 331 kW (450 hp). And a rise torque of 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) – 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) some-more than a prior indication – is accessible opposite a extended engine speed operation from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm. The tip indication in a A5 family sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds and reaches a tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph) – with a discretionary RS energetic package, it can even strech 280 km/h (174.0 mph).

Both turbochargers of a 2.9 TFSI section are mainly positioned inside a V of a engine, and any of them reserve a singular cylinder bank. The B-cycle explosion routine with executive approach injection represents a new turn of potency within a RS family. In a NEDC, a V6 bi-turbo consumes only 8.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (27.0 US mpg), that corresponds to 197 grams of CO2 per kilometer (317.0 g/mi). This is an potency benefit of 17 percent over a prior model. Another cause in a larger potency of a new RS 5 Coupé is a significantly reduce weight. It weighs in during 1,655 kilograms (3,648.7 lb) without a motorist – 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) reduction than previously. A CO roof with manifest fiber structure is also accessible as an option.

The bi-turbo’s energy flows by a sportily-tuned, eight-speed tiptronic delivery with optimized change times and on to a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate that facilities a self-locking executive differential. The expostulate army are asymmetrically distributed between a axles in a ratio of 40:60. Dynamic doing with best traction and a best-possible levels of reserve are so guaranteed. Audi Sport also offers an discretionary back competition differential.

A revised five-link construction is used on a front axle. At a rear, a five-link cessation replaces a trapezoidal-link cessation used on a prior model. This advantages a sporty pushing characteristics and agility. It also improves comfort significantly. With a customary RS competition suspension, a new RS 5 Coupé sits 7 millimeters (0.3 in) reduce than a bottom model. As an alternative, Audi Sport also offers a RS competition cessation and with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC), ceramic brakes and energetic steering with RS-specific tuning. Drivers can make their personal pushing knowledge some-more individual, energetic or gentle regulating a customary energetic doing complement Audi expostulate select.

Bathed in black, a interior is of an intensely high customary and sportily equipped. RS competition seats – optionally accessible in excellent Nappa leather with honeycomb settlement – and a flat-bottomed RS multifunction competition leather steering circle underscore a impression of a high-performance Coupé in a interior as well. The steering circle edge bears a RS badge, as do a front chair backrests and a change gate. Special RS displays in a Audi practical cockpit yield information on tire pressure, torque and g-forces. A change light prompts a motorist to upshift on reaching a rev limit. The RS settlement package brings a sporty contrariety tone red into play on a core console as good as on a armrests, a chair belts and a building mats with RS logo. The steering wheel, selector push and knee pads are all lonesome with Alcantara. The Sonoma immature settlement package from Audi disdainful enriches a interior with reasonably colored resisting stitching – ideal for a new, disdainful extraneous color.
