The Audi RS 4 Avant uses the same high-revving, normally aspirated V8 engine that powers the RS 5 Coupe. The 4,163 cc powerplant produces 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm for a specific output of 108.1 hp per liter. Its maximum torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) is available from 4,000 to 6,000 rpm. The responsive V8 with its red-painted cylinder head covers accelerates the RS 4 Avant from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). This can be increased to 280 km/h (173.98 mph) upon request.
Hand-built at Audi's plant in Györ, Hungary, the 4.2 FSI engine combines its impressive power with exemplary efficiency, consuming on average less than 11 liters of fuel per 100 km (21.38 U.S. mpg).
With its high efficiency and long top gear, the standard seven-speed S tronic also contributes to the vehicle's good fuel economy. Drivers can let the lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission shift automatically or change gears manually using the selector lever or the paddles on the steering wheel. For explosive starts, drivers can also activate Launch Control, which manages the engagement of the clutch at an optimum starting speed and minimum wheel slip.
2013 Audi RS5 - Design
The RS 5 Coupé has an athletic road stance, and its classically elegant
two-door lines dazzle with clear-cut accents. The new single-frame grille
with beveled upper corners features a high-gloss, anthracite gray honeycomb
structure and a matt aluminum-look frame. The standard xenon plus
headlights are framed by narrow strips of LED daytime running lights. The
air flows through large openings embedded in a distinctive bumper featuring
a splitter edge like on a racing car. Sharper edges make the engine hood
appear more three-dimensional so that the RS 5 looks even lower and wider
when viewed from the front.
The flared aluminum front fenders and the rear side elements with the sharp
horizontal upper edges are reminiscent of two classic Audi models from the
1980s -- the all-wheel drive pioneer Audi quattro and the Sport quattro.
The side sills sport chiseled caps; the trim strips and the side mirror
housings have a matt aluminum-look finish.
The tail end is dominated by the two oval Exhaust pipes of the dual Exhaust system, which are integrated into the
redesigned bumper. Audi also offers a sport Exhaust system with a more voluminous sound and
black Exhaust tip bezels. The LED rear
lights are also new and feature continuous light strips. The large diffuser
extends far upward, and the spoiler in the rear hatch extends automatically
at 120 km/h (74.56 mph).
The extensively clad underbody integrates air vents for the seven-speed S
tronic and the front brakes. Thanks to its advanced aerodynamics, the RS 5
Coupé generates downforce at high speed to further enhance stability.
The dynamic looks alter the dimensions slightly. The RS 5 Coupé is 23
millimeters (0.91 in) longer and six millimeters (0.24 in) wider than the
A5 Coupé, but six millimeters (0.24 in) lower. Eight exterior colors are
available, from solid, metallic and pearl effect finishes to a specially
pigmented crystal effect paint.
2013 Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon at Geneva 2012
The Cruze station wagon, the latest bodystyle of Chevrolet's top selling
nameplate, celebrates its world premiere at the 82nd International Geneva
Motor Show. The experience gained on the track in the World Touring Car
Championship (WTCC), which the Cruze has won for two years in a row in 2010
and 2011, were put to good use in the further development of the Cruze. The
Cruze station wagon is immediately recognizable as a new variant of the
Chevrolet Cruze, which has conquered the hearts and minds of more than a
million motorists globally and has helped Chevrolet retake the passenger
car crown in the U.S.. Apart from its generous storage space, the new
station wagon features a choice of new powerful and efficient engines as
well as the state-of-the-art MyLink onboard infotainment system. A choice
of five powertrains will be available for the entire Cruze line-up as of
summer 2012. A new 1.4L turbo gasoline,
a new 1.7L diesel and a 2.0L diesel engine with start-stop technology will
now complement the powertrain offer in addition to the current 1.6L and
1.8L gasoline engines.
2013 Volkswagen up! 4-DOOR
The two-door up! by Volkswagen is one of the most important automotive
highlights of the past year. All signs point to a big future for the small
car. In Germany, for example, the up! immediately garnered first place in
its class in registration statistics. Now, in 2012 Volkswagen is raising
the bar by presenting, alongside the eco up!, the four-door version of the
city specialist. In May, the four-door version will arrive at the dealers;
advanced sales already begin on 6 March (both dates in Germany). Market
roll-out of the four-door car will be complete for all of Europe by early
summer. The four-door has the same engines (44 kW / 60 PS and 55 kW / 75
PS), equipment versions (take up!, move up!, high up!, black up!, white
up!) and dimensions (3,540 mm long, 1,641 mm wide without mirrors, 1,478 mm
high) as the two-door cars.
2012 Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet
Volkswagen presented the new Golf Cabriolet at the Geneva International
Motor Show. Now, at the same venue, the top version of the bestseller is
making its world debut: the first GTI Cabriolet in the history of the Golf!
The GTI engine crowns the open-top four-seater with 155 kW / 210 PS of
power, making it the most powerful Golf Cabriolet ever. GTI does not only
mean more power, but also a sportier exterior and interior and precisely
tuned running gear. The first Golf GTI Cabriolet models will be delivered
just in time for the official arrival of summer.
