Audi RS5 details:
The Audi RS5 Coupé uses a high-revving, normally aspirated V8 displacing 4163, cc. This motor is closely related to the V10 that powers the R8 high-performance sports vehicle. The 4. 2 FSI provides 331 Kw (450 hp) at 8250, rpm, with the peak torque of 430 Nm (317. 15 lb-ft) available between 4000, and 6000, rpm. The motor has a specific output of 108. 1 hp per liter of displacement. The potent response, the eager revving and the rich, melodious audio mark the V8 as a thoroughbred racing motor.
Hand-built at the plant in Györ, Hungary, the 4. 2 FSI launches the Coupé from zero to 100 km/h (62. 14 mph) in 4. 6 seconds. Audi will increase the electronically governed top speed from 250 to 280 km/h (155. 34 to 173. 98 mph) upon request. due to the mix of technologies from the Audi modular efficiency platform, which also contains a recuperation system, the innovative V8 consumes significantly less fuel on average than its direct rivals.
With its high efficiency and its long top gear, the traditional seven-speed S tronic also contributes to the good fuel efficiency. Drivers can let the lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission shift automatically or change gears themselves using the selector lever or with paddles on the helm. The integrated release control program offers for rocket-like starts by managing the engagement of the clutch at mid-level revs.
