The RS story has unfolded over the last fifteen years, delivering a series of elegant yet supremely powerful models – and the RS 5 Coupé is no exception. As a direct descendant of our most exciting highperformance models, it’s the culmination of the technical expertise we’ve gained on roads and racetracks all over the world. Our long history of motorsport success is evident throughout the RS 5 Coupé. Some of the world’s toughest races have taught us how to propel our cars ever more powerfully, responsively and efficiently. The RS 5 Coupé’s engine epitomises this knowledge. A close relative of the V10 in the Audi R8, the 4.2 V8 FSI® engine develops 450PS and transmits a maximum of 430 Nm of torque. However, you’ll see as you read on, there’s much more to the RS 5 Coupé than thrilling power and handling – but we think you’ll agree that these qualities are an excellent place to start.
