The Audi RS 5 Coupé uses a high-revving, normally aspirated V8 displacing 4,163 cc. This engine is closely related to the V10 that powers the R8 high-performance sports car. The 4.2 FSI delivers 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm, with the peak torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) available between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. The engine has a specific output of 108.1 hp per liter of displacement. The potent response, the eager revving and the rich, melodious sound mark the V8 as a thoroughbred racing engine.
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. Thanks to the combination of technologies from the Audi modular efficiency platform, which also includes a recuperation system, the high-tech V8 consumes significantly less fuel on average than its direct competitors.
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 Audi RS5 Convertible INSANE SOUND!!!
The four-seat convertible with a cloth soft top entices with a unique
combination of elegance and power. Its 4.2 FSI, a high-revving naturally
aspirated V8 engine, outputs 331 kW (450 hp). It accelerates the
high-performance sports car from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.9
The Audi RS 5 Cabriolet measures 4,649 mm (15.25 ft) long, 1,860 mm (6.10
ft) wide and 1,380 mm (4.53 ft) high, and its wheelbase is 2,751 mm (9.03
ft). Eight exterior colors are available -- a monochrome color, four
metallic and pearl effect colors and three crystal effect paints. The soft
top is available in black, gray, red or brown. As options, Audi can install
a styling package in matt aluminum as well as an engine compartment design
package that uses carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials. The
car's drag coefficient is 0.34; underbody panels make a significant
contribution towards aerodynamic refinement.
Propulsive power for the RS 5 Cabriolet is supplied by a high-revving,
naturally aspirated V8 engine with FSI direct injection. From its 4,163 cc
of engine displacement, it outputs 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm and
produces a maximum torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) between 4,000 and 6,000
rpm. The 4.2 FSI with red painted cylinder head covers that is manually
assembled in the Hungarian plant in Győr achieves a specific power output
of 79.5 kW (108.1 hp) per liter engine displacement; each hp only needs to
move 4.267 kg (9.41 lb) of vehicle weight. The long-stroke engine with its
aluminum crankcase breathes freely; flaps in the Exhaust tailpipes vary the sonorous acoustic
backdrop. As an option, Audi can deliver a sport Exhaust system with black tailpipe trim.
The Audi RS 5 Cabriolet rockets from a standstill to 100 km/h (62.14 mph)
in 4.9 seconds. The car's top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155.34 mph); at
customer request, Audi can Boost
this to 280 km/h (173.98 mph). The powerful V8 has a combined fuel
consumption of 10.9 l/100 km (21.58 US mpg). Its cylinder liners and chain
drive are optimized for minimal friction, and the oil pump is only driven
Customer deliveries of the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet begin in early 2013 in
Germany. The base price in the home market will be 88,500 euros.
► 2013 Audi RS5 - INTERIOR
The vehicle's dynamically elegant styling also extends to the interior. The
standard sport seats with integrated headrests are power adjustable and
covered in a combination of black leather and Alcantara. Audi also offers
seat upholstery in Fine Nappa leather in a choice of black or lunar silver,
both subtly accented with rock gray piping. Other options include bucket
seats with folding backrests or comfortable, climate-controlled comfort
seats with a ventilation function. The interior is bathed in black, with
narrow chrome clasps at the switches and control elements providing
delicate accents. Inlays are available in a choice of carbon, brushed or
etched aluminum, a high-gloss piano finish or a light-colored stainless
The new leather multifunction sport steering wheel with its thick rim is
flattened at the bottom and features a new, even easier control concept.
The ignition key and the shift lever knob have also been redesigned. Even
the steering column stalks have been updated. The instruments have black
gauges and white lettering with special scaling. When the ignition is
turned, the red needles of the speedometer and tachometer run quickly up to
the limit before returning to zero for a touch of sporty flair. Typical of
all RS vehicles, the door openers are two delicate bars.
The driver information system with color display includes an RS menu with a
lap timer and an oil thermometer. It displays a special RS welcome screen
when the car is started. A piano-finish fascia in the instrument panel
frames the instrument cluster. The pedals, the footrest and the buttons of
the optional MMI navigation systems shine in an aluminum-look finish.
Aluminum inserts adorn the door sill trims, which are accentuated with RS 5
Audi also offers numerous exclusive features for the interior. A carbon
design package is available for the engine compartment, as are a variety of
styling packages for the body in black or matt aluminum look. A broad range
of high-performance assistance and communication systems round out the
optional extras program. Among these are adaptive cruise control, Audi side
assist, adaptive light, MMI navigation plus, the Bluetooth online car phone
and the Bang & Olufsen sound system.
► 2013 Audi RS4 Avant [450 hp]
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 Review - Kelley Blue Book
Building on the charms of its A5 and S5 coupe siblings the Audi RS5 asserts
its range-topping position with excellent design, exhilarating yet
unintimidating performance and an iconoclastic spirit. It also commands a
$10,000 premium versus its primary competitors. Is the RS 5 is worth the
cost? KBB's Micah Muzio analyzes the situation in this video.

2013 Audi RS 5 Track Test Drive & Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/rs-5/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Audi RS 5 is a
great performing luxury sports car that is a true competitor to the BMW M3
and Mercedes C63 AMG. If this car proves to be anything close to the
previous RS models it will be rare, collectable, and a great value with a
starting price of under $70k. Anytime Audi manufacturers a vehicle with the
letter "R" in the model name, you know the car is going to be a high
performance machine. Think about the RS 4, RS 6, TT RS, and of course the
legendary R8 are all great sports cars. What we have here for the first
time ever in the U.S. is the Audi RS 5. This 2-door luxury sports coupe has
a base price of $68,900.
There are many ways the 2013 Audi RS 5 is distinguished from the A5/S5. The
first thing you will notice is the massive front grille called the
Singleframe grille with diamond mesh and Aluminum optic surround. Out back
the Adaptive rear spoiler is unique to the RS 5. There are other exterior
cues too but it's really what you cannot see like the shocks, springs,
wheels, and engine that set this car apart from the rest.
There are 3 different engine offerings throughout the range of Audi
A5/S5/RS 5 family of vehicles. The A5 gets a turbocharged 4-cylinder, the S5 gets a
supercharged V-6, and the RS 5 has a normally aspirated V-8. The engine
powering the 2013 Audi RS 5 is a 4.2 liter V-8 that makes 450 horsepower and 317 lb-ft. of
torque. The only transmission offering is a 7-speed automatic with
auto-shift. Fuel economy figures are 16 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the
highway. But the 2013 Audi RS 5 is not so much about horsepower as it is about
performance in cornering and handling.
The standard wheels on the RS 5 are 19-inch 10-spoke wheels but you can
upgrade to 20-inch wheels wrapped in 275/30 series tires. Of course every
Audi performance ride comes with the addition of Quattro all-wheel drive.
What's unique about the Quattro system on the 2013 Audi RS 5 is that 60% of
the power goes to the rear wheels and extra power can be applied to the
outside rear wheel during cornering.
The 2013 Audi RS 5 is far from disappointing. It reminds us of a more
refined version of the RS 4 sedan that was out a few years ago in the sense
that you have a great roaring V-8 motor with the legendary Quattro AWD
system that vehicles like the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG do not have. What
that does is make average drivers good and good drivers better. This car is
a thrill to drive both on the track and around town thanks to all the
refinements Audi has put into the RS 5.

2014 Audi RS7 Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/rs-7/2014/?id=32972 The RS is the top of
Audi's performance line-up. The RS 7 sits above the A7 and the S7 models.
The starting price is north of $105k but you get a whole ton of
performance. Under the hood lives a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V-8 monster that makes 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of
torque. The Audi RS 7 can run from 0-60 MPH in 3.7 seconds. Fuel economy is
actually very good at 16 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway thanks
to the cylinder deactivation system. With the RS 7 you also get a
wonderfully load and entertaining Exhaust.
The RS 7 gets special embroidered seats, badging, and unique interior
trims. The gauges are clear and easy to read and the pop-up navigation
screen is great. The rear passengers enjoy plenty of legroom but not as
much headroom since the hatchback design of the RS 7 cuts down that space.
That is one of the few negatives on this Sportback design. The benefit
though is an enlarged trunk area that has more cubic feet of space.
The driving experience is incredible. The car has the adaptive air
suspension which combines the best of both worlds: a comfortable ride
coupled with excellent body control. Also the Torque Vectoring Rear Diff is
on hand to keep you out of trouble. Bottom line: the Audi RS 7 delivers
just what it promises!

When it comes to sporting heritage, few marques can match Audi and BMW.
Both have succeeded in the white heat of competition, and proved that the
race track and rally stage are the best proving grounds for new products.
