The crankcase is created from an aluminum-silicon alloy by means of sand casting and weighs just 34 kilograms (75.0 lb). The so-called "deep-skirt" design extends the walls of the crankcase far downwards, which also saves weight. The entire engine weighs just 182 kilograms (401.2 lb) which makes it 31 kilograms (68.3 lb) lighter than its V8 predecessor. Gross weight and axle load distribution are the predominant beneficiaries of this in the new RS5 Coupe. The flat-bottomed 3-spoke RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel features multifunction buttons for convenient operation of the infotainment system. Equally integrated are high-gloss black shift paddles with aluminum elements. The steering wheel rim bears the RS badge, as does the RS-specific shift gate. An additional optical highlight is the optional RS design package. It brings the sporty contrast color red into play on the center console as well as on the armrests, the seat belts and the floor mats with RS logo. The steering wheel, selector lever and knee pads are all covered with Alcantara. The Sonoma green design package from Audi exclusive enriches the interior with appropriately colored contrasting stitching - perfect for the new, exclusive exterior color.
With the newly developed 2.9 TFSI, Audi has drawn upon the legendary 2.7 liter V6 from the first RS4 Avant. Produced between 1999 and 2001, it delivered 280 kW (380 hp). Just like the 2.7 liter engine, the new high-performance V6 is also designed as a bi-turbo engine. In comparison with its direct predecessor, a freely-aspirated, high-revving V8 unit, its pulling power and efficiency attain a whole other dimension.
The new Audi RS5 Coupe demonstrates its sporty character as a gran turismo at first glance. The designers drew inspiration for the car from the distinctive motorsport details of the Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO. The front, sides and rear exhibit RS-typical differentiation. Measuring 4,723 millimeters (185.9 in) in length, the second generation of the Audi RS5 Coupe is 74 millimeters (2.9 in) longer than the predecessor model. The height is 1,360 millimeters (53.5 in) and thus 6 millimeters (0.2 in) lower than previously. At 1,861 millimeters (73.3 in), the vehicle’s width is almost the same as before.
