2018 Audi RS 5 Performance

We dreamed up a nightmare for the competition.
You can imagine its rivals losing sleep when haunted by thoughts of the Audi RS 5. Keeping pace just became more challenging. The new RS 5 is lighter than the previous generation Audi RS 5 and the biturbo 2.9-liter TFSI® V6 engine delivers 126 lb-ft more torque than the previous V8 FSI® engine. The result is performance the competition can only fantasize about.[1]

2.9-liter Biturbo TFSI® V6 engine

A model of modern power production. Both turbochargers are centrally positioned inside the “V” of the engine with each turbocharger supplying a single cylinder bank. Combined, they produce 21.6 psi to achieve 126 lb-ft more torque than the V8 FSI® engine in the previous generation RS 5. As much as 443 lb-ft of torque is available between 1,900-5,000 rpm, giving it the feeling of a broad powerband.[1]

Eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission

Audi Sport® engineers carefully calculated the gear ratios to help give the Audi RS 5 quick, off-the-line acceleration and longer gears to help lower engine rpms at highway speeds. The wide range of gear ratios helps the engine operate at its ideal engine speed.[1]
