The range RS is the family of vehicles more dynamic, powerful and attractive Audi, if and when we forget the Audi R8. Everything started, several decades ago, with the famous Audi RS2. Now, the ) RS associated to the models Audi A3, A4, A5 and A6. Despite the fact that keep the body of the model from which it is derived, and its aesthetic is clearly more sporty, although don’t get to lose elegance that always characterized the models of Ingolstadt.
You could say that they are vehicles that are more than they appear, and that is that despite having a body “normal”, under their respective bonnets there are no engines “normal”. In fact, today we have known, by a leak brought to light by Motor1, the mechanics that will receive the Audi RS4 Avant, Audi RS5 and the new Audi RS5 Sportback. According to this medium, to overcome the power and torque that develops the very Porsche Panamera 4S.
Although it may seem that there is very important, if this this filtration Motor1 is 100 % real, we offers quite a few new eye-catching beyond that, the Audi RS4 Avant, RS5 and RS5 Sportback slightly exceed the performance of the sedan from Porsche. The first of all is that, until now, the German brand of the four rings had not marketed a Audi RS5 Sportback and from a few months yes it will, along with the version of two doors.
on the other hand, the range of RS4 and RS5 of Audi will no longer use the famous block V8 FSI intake air that both stood out for their sound (and also by their consumption). substitute shall be a propeller V6 2.9-liter TFSI with twin-supercharger, the same as that used by the Porsche Panamera 4S. Regarding the increased power, the Porsche Panamera 4S develops 440 HP and 550 Nm of torque, giving the three variants, a sporty Audi a dozen more horses and 50 Nm.
With these 450 HP and 600 Nm torque of the Audi RS4 Avant, RS5 and RS5 Sportback, we can expect that the acceleration time in the 0 to 100 km/h is placed close to the 4 seconds, reaching without problems 250 km/h that will be limited electronically. The positive side of this twin-turbo V6 compared to the V8’s maximum torque is that the consumption should be clearly more adjusted.
