Audi drives in a new form of V6 power- launches the second generation Audi RS 5 Coupé in India #LeagueofPerformance

Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, today launched
the second generation Audi RS 5 Coupé in India. With the all new Audi RS 5 Coupé, Audi
Sport is presenting its first model to feature the new RS design philosophy in India. The
Coupé’s all-new 2.9 TFSI bi-turbo engine produces 331 kW (450 hp) and delivers 600 Nm of
torque. The standard quattro drive distributes the power to all four wheels. The distinctive
racing details coupled with high performance of a V6 engine makes the new Audi RS 5 Coupé
the most desirable model in the Audi A5 family. Priced at INR 1,10,65,000, the all new Audi
RS 5 Coupé is now available at all Audi dealerships across India.
“Audi Sport signifies the transition of Audi’s racetrack technology into production ready
performance cars. Born on the track, built for the road – the all new Audi RS 5 Coupé is the gran
turismo among the RS models from Audi Sport. The car’s V6 bi-turbo engine has been
developed from the ground up and provides significantly more performance coupled with
higher efficiency. The all new Audi RS5 Coupé combines the performance of a sportscar and the
comfort of a sedan which makes it a desirable machine for our customers and enthusiasts who are smart yet adventurous and want to make an incomparable style statement,” said Mr. Rahil
Ansari, Head Audi India.
The new Audi RS 5 Coupé is mated with the 2.9 TFSI bi-turbo engine which produces 331 kW
(450 hp) and delivers 600 Nm of torque. The top model in the A5 family sprints from 0 to 100
km/h in just 3.9 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h. Both turbochargers of the 2.9
TFSI engine unit are centrally positioned inside the V of the engine and each of them supplies a
single cylinder bank. The B-cycle combustion process with central direct injection represents a
new level of efficiency within the RS family.
“2018 is the Year of Audi Progression and in line with this, we are renewing our performance
car portfolio in India and have lined up more surprises in store for our performance car
enthusiasts in the coming days. The all new Audi RS 5 Coupé is a unique product as it bridges
the gap for the customers who are practical and want to own a luxury car with the performance
of a sportscar,” added Mr. Ansari.
