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 R8 V10 Coupé: Even in the Best [HD]
The base price is EUR 113,500 for the V8 Coupé, and EUR 124,800 for the
Spyder. The V10 variants are listed at EUR 154,600 and EUR 165,900
respectively, while the R8 V10 plus costs EUR 173,200.
Audi has made its R8 high-performance sports car even more attractive and
dynamic. The R8 V10 plus is a new top model in the model series, with a
totally new 7-speed S tronic. The LED headlights and the new rear indicator
lights with dynamicized display are standard equipment on all variants.
The V10 engine provides a torque of 530 Nm (390.91 lb-ft) at 6,500 rpm,
with 386 kW (525 hp) at 8,000 rpm. Its crankshaft is a common-pin design,
yielding alternating ignition intervals of 54 and 90 degrees. This design
combines maximum rigidity and low weight, while at the same time generating
the unique car racing-like sound of the V10.
The Audi R8 V10 Coupé with S tronic accelerates from zero to 100 km/h
(62.14 mph) in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 314 km/h (195.11
mph). With manual transmission the values are 3.9 seconds and 316 km/h
(196.35 mph). The R8 V10 Spyder with S tronic completes the standard sprint
in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 311 km/h (193.25 mph) (with manual
transmission: 4.1 seconds and 313 km/h (194.49 mph)). The average
consumption rate of the R8 V10 Coupé with S tronic lies at 13.1 liters of
fuel per 100 km (17.96 US mpg).
The new top model of the model series is the Audi R8 V10 plus. Developing
404 kW (550 hp), its maximum torque is 540 Nm (398.28 lb-ft) at 6,500 rpm.
With S tronic, the R8 V10 plus, available only as a coupé, catapults from
zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 3.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of 317
km/h (196.97 mph); the average fuel consumption rate is 12.9 liters per 100
km (18.23 US mpg). The key data with manual transmission are 3.8 seconds,
319 km/h (198.22 mph) and 14.9 liters (15.79 US mpg).
Two power transmission systems are available for the overhauled Audi R8.
The manual 6-speed transmission, with its lever leading into an open
stainless steel gate, is standard on the V8 and optional on the V10. The
new 7-speed S tronic -- optional on the V8 and standard on the V10 --
spaces the gears closely in a sporty mode; the final drive position has a
wide gear ratio. The dual clutch transmission can be shifted at the
selector lever or at the steering wheel paddles; a sports mode is
alternatively available. At the press of a button the launch control
manages starting at an increased initial engine speed and with optimal tire
The new 7-speed S tronic, with a three-shaft layout, is less than 60
centimeters (23.62 inches) in length. Two multi-plate clutches lying behind
one another (a new feature), serve two mutually independent
sub-transmissions; gears are shifted directly as the clutches alternately
open and close. Gearshifting occurs practically without interruption of
tractive power within hundredths of a second, and so dynamically, smoothly
and comfortably as to be hardly noticeable.
From the 7-speed S tronic the propeller shaft runs through the crankcase of
the engine to the front axle, where a viscous coupling distributes the
torque. In normal operation the coupling directs about 15 per cent of the
torque to the front axle; when the rear wheels start to spin, a maximum
additional 15 per cent flows to the front. A mechanical locking
differential operates at the rear axle. The rear-load distribution of the
forces ideally harmonizes with the mid-engined concept of the Audi R8. The
axle-load distribution is 43 : 57 (front : rear), with small differences
between the individual variants.
The chassis of the high-performance sports car employs technologies from
car racing. Double wishbones forged from aluminum guide all four wheels. On
the R8 V10 plus the springs and shock absorbers have been specially tuned
and the camber values at the front axle adapted accordingly. The Audi
magnetic ride adaptive damping is standard on the R8 V10 and optional for
the V8 variants; it offers a normal mode and a sports mode. The power
steering delivers finely differentiated, super-sensitive feedback, with
sporty, direct gear
The overhauled R8 rolls along on large wheels. The V8 engine versions have
the standard wheel dimensions of 8.5 J x 18 at the front and 10.5 J x 18 at
the rear, with tire sizes 235/40 and 285/35. On the V10 versions Audi
mounts 19-inch wheels of widths 8.5 and 11 inches; the tires come in the
sizes 235/35 and 295/30 respectively. The optional wheels have especially
attractive designs -- polished to a high gloss, with a titanium look or (on
the R8 V10 plus) in black gloss.

Audi RS5 (valves deleted): Cold Start & Revving! 1080p HD!
Like TypeRacer8 on Facebook:
This beautiful Audi RS5 in the color named 'Sprint Blue' has impressed me a
lot of times. I've seen it alot of times and also photographed it. But now
I got the change to record it! A funny spec: This RS5 doesn't have the
valves system anymore. The owner wanted to have the nice sound everytime,
every rmp he drives it. The cold start sounded pretty mean and brutal to
me, what do you think?
