Recreation of the new Audi RS Q5.
At the Geneva motor show will see many presentations and we will win many surprises, not in vain, for in these first few weeks of the year, we have been able to attend to several revelations and interesting advertisements of some brands. Audi Sport will take advantage of this event to the launch of a new model, on this occasion, the most radical of the Audi Q5.
The SUV German will receive your version more prestacional to date, that will move up a rung compared to the current SQ5, that we can currently find it in two versions, petrol and diesel. The SQ5 petrol has a six-cylinder engine with 354 HP and 500 Nm of torque, while the SQ5 TDI – not yet available in the range 2017 – came to have a V6 3.0-liter with ratings up to 340 HP.
The new Audi RS Q5 will increase extensively this performance and it is speculated that could reach the 450 HP, although it is not confirmed that the engine could be mounted. The possible candidates are an evolution of the current V6 of 3.0-litre SQ5 petrol or a V6 of 2.9 liters of source Porsche. It is worth pointing out that the Porsche Macan uses the same platform as the Audi Q5.
The only SUV from Audi that carries the insignia of RS is Q3.
The confirmation of this release came from the hand of the same Stephan Winkelmann, the head of Audi Sport, which, in the words of the australian press confirmed the arrival of a new model RS in the segment that militates precisely the Q5.
“Geneva is just opposite our. We will be there a release that is going to be very important for us because it will mark a new era in its segment for Audi Sport. You will see that in a very short time going to happen.” Stephan Winkelmann in words to Motoring.
This is part of a new breed of models that are already being developed by Audi Sport for the family RS. In total, this division is working on ten new models, of which a good part will be SUVs, so we can expect the arrival of the new RS Q2 RS Q4 or RS Q6.
