German luxury car brand, Audi, launched the second generation RS 5 Coupé recently. With the all new 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 vehicle the most desirable model in the Audi A5 family. Priced at Rs 1.1 crore, the vehicle is now available at all company dealerships across India.
“Audi Sport signifies the transition of our racetrack technology into production of ready performance cars. Born on the track, built for the road – the all new RS 5 Coupé is the gran turismo among the RS models. The car’s V6 bi-turbo engine has been developed from the ground up and provides significantly more performance coupled with higher efficiency. The new model 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 Rahil Ansari, head, Audi India.
The new 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 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 new 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 sports car,” added Ansari.
The new car reportedly has 17 per cent less consumption (as compared to the predecessor model) and so has an improved fuel-efficiency of 10.8kpl.
