The powerful V8 consumes just liters of fuel per 100 km (22.40 US much less than its competitors. The cylinder barrels and the drive have been for minimal friction, and the oil pump is

With its high efficiency and its top gear, the standard seven-speed S also contributes to the good economy. Drivers can operate the transmission like an automatic in D and S or they can shift themselves the gear selector lever or the on the steering wheel for particularly driving. The launch control modulates the engagement of the clutch at the engine speed for pulling so that the engine’s power is to the road with minimal slip.

The seven-speed S tronic consists of two whose clutches actuate gears. The direct shifts are by switching clutches; they just a few hundredths of a second and so comfortable that the driver notices.

Like every RS model, the RS5 Coupé comes quattro permanent all-wheel The crown gear center at its heart is compact and lightweight. normal driving, it distributes the between the front and rear with a sporty 60:40 bias.

It can instantly vary distribution if necessary, sending up to 70 of the torque to the front and as much as 85 to the rear.

The crown-gear center works together with the vectoring system, which on all four wheels. If the load on the wheel is reduced too much the car is being driven dynamically, wheel is braked slightly it can begin to slip. The Audi RS5 remains neutral for an extremely time at the handling limits; the understeer when turning corners and when accelerating is almost completely.

The ESP stabilization intervenes later and more – if it is even necessary at

Audi offers the sport as a complementary option that distributes the power between the wheels via two superposition stages. turning into or accelerating in a the majority of it flows to the outside and pushes the Audi RS5 Coupé the curve, nipping the tendency to or understeer in the bud.

The chassis of the RS5 Coupé is the basis for fast and turn-in, high lateral and supreme stability. Most of the of the five-link front suspension and the trapezoidal-link rear suspension are of aluminum.

The new speed-dependent power is an electromechanical system with a direct steering ratio for precise road feel. It can the driver with slight corrections when braking on a with different amounts of The steering system consumes no when driving straight which contributes to powerful efficiency.

The taut setup lowers the by 20 millimeters (0.79 in) compared the Audi A5. The bearings are stiffer and the bars are thicker. Newly 9 J x 19 forged aluminum wheels 265/35-series tires are standard.

wheels with 275/30-series are available as an option. Audi two versions of them, one with a titanium-look finish.

The brake of the Audi RS5 Coupé features internally ventilated wave with the front discs 365 millimeters (14.37 in) in diameter. The friction rings with wave-like outer contour are and connected to the aluminum brake via pins. This direct reduces tensions, quickly the heat and prevents the transmission of peaks.

The new shape of the friction shaves a total of roughly kilograms (6.61 lb) from the masses.

The calipers are painted black; the front calipers eight pistons each and RS logos. The electronic stabilization (ESP) includes a Sport and can be switched off entirely. Six-piston and carbon-fiber ceramic discs 380 millimeters (14.96 in) up front are available.

They are lightweight, fade-free, extremely robust, and durable.

Upon request, equips the RS5 with a particularly damping technology – the suspension plus with ride control (DRC).

The opposed pairs of shock are linked by hydraulic lines and a valve. During fast the system boosts the stabilization of the front outside wheel, for The sport suspension plus a three-stage, variable damping

The Audi drive select dynamics system comes with the Audi RS5 Coupé. system allows the driver to between three modes comfort, auto and dynamic for the characteristics of the steering, the seven-speed S the throttle valves and the exhaust valves. And if the car is equipped with an navigation system, there is a driver-configurable custom mode.

modules for Audi drive beside the sport differential and the characteristic in the sport suspension are adaptive cruise control and steering. The latter uses a gear to vary the steering by nearly 100 percent as a function of and countersteers slightly at the cornering
