There certainly aren’t many perfect sports vehicles out there, but the Audi RS 5 challenges this statement. Without any compromise, it does everything well!

Power you can Feel and Hear
The two turbochargers the 2.9-liter engine of RS 5 are located inside the “V”, advancing engine responsiveness and performance. For high-engine efficiency, power, and torque, the V6 engine employs a centrally-mounted fuel-injector and a combustion technique with shorter compression and longer expansion phases. This B-cycle combustion method with central-direct injectors further bolsters the effectiveness of the powertrain. This engine generates 444 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. That’s 126 lb-ft more than the previous generation! And yes, there is still a sports exhaust that provides the inimitable sound and driver controllable exhaust flaps. This 2 door coupe is ready for you to have some fun and you will be too once you witness the 3.7 second 0-60 mph acceleration.

The dynamic power of the 2.9 TFT reaches the quattro® permanent four-wheel drive with self-locking center differential via a sporty eight-speed Tiptronic® with optimized shifting points, distributing the drive forces asymmetrically 40:60 on the axles — this assures both responsive handling and optimal performance.

Wherever you go in Chicago, heads will turn toward you! A traction control system manages the distribution for maximum acceleration with minimal slip and the standard quattro® sports rear differential to maximize driving dynamics.


The Virtual Cockpit

While offering outstanding performance, within the cabin, the RS 5 Coupe integrates benchmark technologies including standard Audi smartphone interface, which provides Apple CarPlay™ and Google™ Android Auto for compatible mobile devices. Renowned RS 12.3 inch displays in the Audi virtual cockpit inform the driver of tire pressure, torque, a shift light indicator, and g-forces.
