Blazing performance, compact size. Audi has added a new model to its
dynamic RS series: the RS 3 Sportback. In the great tradition of the brand,
its engine boasts five cylinders and turbocharging technology. From a displacement of
2.5 liters come 250 kW (340 hp) of power and 450 Nm (331.90 lb-ft) of
torque, with an average fuel consumption of just 9.1 liters of fuel per 100
km (25.85 US mpg). Power is transmitted to the road via a seven-speed
S tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive. 19-inch wheels and fenders
made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) underscore the Audi RS 3
Sportback's position of distinction.
The RS 3 Sportback comes with an array of standard equipment including the
Sport button, rear parking system, climate control, chorus radio system,
and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights. Audi offers
customers a range of optional features: front bucket seats, roof rails in
matt aluminum look, and styling packages in black or matt aluminum. Five
exterior colors are available, plus an unlimited selection of custom paint
The new top-of-the-line model in the A3 series is already the fourth Audi
model to be built at Audi Hungaria in Győr, where it is rolling off the
assembly line alongside the TT Coupé, the TT Roadster and the A3
Deliveries of the RS 3 Sportback will begin in early 2011. The base price
in Germany will be 49,900 euros.
► 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 - Full Throttle
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
Audi RS5 Sport Exhaust Test Drive : Revs, Accelerations, Downshifts...
This is the Audi RS5. It has the same engine as the R8 but more powerfull :
450HP from the 4.2 V8. This one was featured with the optional sport Exhaust.
There are three modes for the ride : comfort (more comfortable than my
actual A5, incredible), the Auto mode and the Dynamic mode that open the
valves in the Exhausts (sport ones in
this one) and make the ride more hard (too much). You can see in the video
when the driver touches the button to put it in Dynamic, it downshifts loud
and fast itself... And the sound is immediately more loud ! I didn't expect
this car to be that loud ! The small "BOOM" you hear in the video are not
when we drive over a bump but when it changes gear ! (down or up).

2011 Audi RS3 Sportback Driving
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Audi AG - The 2.5-liter engine in the RS 3
Sportback will thrill passengers thanks to its tremendous pulling power and
its voracious revving up to 6,800 rpm. The guttural roaring and growling,
backed by the signature rhythm of the five-cylinder firing order make up
the classic Audi soundtrack. A sound flap in the Exhaust branch intensifies the sound even
further. The flap is controlled via the standard Sport button, which also
varies the engine response.
Powerful five-cylinder engines have a long legacy at Audi. In the 1980s,
racing cars and production cars used them to edge out the competition. Even
the first Audi RS model, the 1994 RS 2, had a five-cylinder engine. The
2.5-liter unit, already part of the TT RS specifications, now redefines the
state of the art, having recently been named "International Engine of the
Year" by a high-ranking jury of automotive journalists.
The 2.5 TFSI delivers 250 kW (340 hp) from a displacement of 2,480 cc: a
specific power output of 100.8 kW (137.1 hp) per liter. The maximum torque
of 450 Nm (331.90 lb-ft) is readily available at the low end of the rev
range, around 1,600 rpm, and remains constant up to 5,300 revolutions.
These general parameters yield excellent acceleration and elasticity
