Extended wheelbase, brief overhangs and a long, wraparound engine hood with energy dome: The on-going extraneous settlement of a Audi RS 5 Sportback illustrates a model’s dynamics. A far-reaching and prosaic Singleframe grille with quattro trademark in matt black and large atmosphere inlets with an RS-specific honeycomb structure accoutre a front. An RS-typical diffuser insert, a RS empty complement with oval tailpipes as good as a surface-mounted spoiler mouth yield sporty accents during a rear. The RS 5 Sportback comes customary with 19-inch fake wheels; 20-inch wheels are accessible as an option. Customers can customize a new Audi RS 5 Sportback with a shimmer black, matt aluminum and CO styling packages. The paint finish Sonoma immature lead is disdainful to a Audi RS 5.
Finished wholly in black, a interior of a new Audi RS 5 Sportback is richly and functionally versed while charity space for 5 people. Details such as RS competition seats with discretionary honeycomb settlement in Fine Nappa leather and a flat-bottomed RS multifunction competition leather steering circle underscore a sporty impression of a five-door, high-performance coupé.
The middle values of a RS 5 Sportback also stir with energy and efficiency. The 2.9 TFSI V6 biturbo engine produces 331 kW (450 hp). Its limit torque of 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) is accessible between 1,900 and 5,000 rpm. The Audi RS 5 Sportback accelerates to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds on a approach to an discretionary tip speed of 280 km/h (174.0 mph).
A sportily tuned eight-speed tiptronic with optimized rigging changing transfers a energy of a 2.9 TFSI to a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate with self-locking core differential. It distributes a energy to a axles asymmetrically (40:60), ensuring energetic doing with optimal traction total with a biggest probable safety. When slippage occurs on an axle, many of a energy immediately flows to a other spindle – adult to 70% to a front, and adult to 85% to a rear. This locking outcome enables a clearly-defined torque placement and accurate team-work with a control systems. The discretionary competition differential with RS-specific tuning ensures even some-more energetic responsiveness when steering and accelerating. The complement actively and selectively distributes a torque between a back wheels.
Thanks to five-link front and back suspensions, business knowledge comfort and uncompromised sportiness. With a customary RS competition suspension, a RS 5 Sportback is 7 millimeters (0.3 in) reduce than a Audi S5 Sportback. Audi Sport also offers a RS competition cessation with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC), ceramic brakes and energetic steering with RS-specific tuning.
The Audi RS 5 Sportback can be systematic immediately and will be during dealerships from mid-2019. The five-door, high-performance coupé has a bottom cost of 82.700 euros.
