The axle concept of the new RS5 Coupe enables optimal absorption of longitudinal and transverse forces. A revised five-link construction is used on the front axle. At the rear, a five-link suspension replaces the trapezoidal-link suspension used on the previous model. This benefits the sporty driving characteristics and agility. It also improves comfort significantly. With the standard RS sport suspension, the new RS5 Coupe sits 7 millimeters (0.3 in) lower than the base model. Audi Sport offers the RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an alternative. It uses steel springs and three-stage adjustable dampers that are connected to one another via diagonal oil lines and a central valve. When cornering at speed, the valves regulate the oil flow in the shock absorber of the spring-deflected front wheel at the outside of the curve. They increase the support provided and reduce pitch and roll movements. They thus connect the vehicle more closely to the road and improve handling. A new damper generation with integrated control valve ensures much more noticeable spread between the individual modes of the Audi drive select system.
Sporty accents on the short rear end come in the form of the RS-specific diffuser insert, the oval tailpipes of the RS exhaust system and the vertical air outlets on the outer edges of the LED rear lights. A surface-mounted spoiler lip in black, or optionally in carbon, rounds out the image.
From 1,900 to 5,000 rpm, the 2.9 TFSI supplies the crankshaft with an impressive 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque, which is 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than on the previous model. With its 331 kW (450 hp) - which equates to a power ratio of 155.5 hp per liter displacement - the unit accelerates the new RS5 Coupe from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds and thus six tenths of a second faster than before. If the customer orders the RS dynamic package, Audi increases the electronically restricted top speed from 250 km/h (155.3 mph) to 280 km/h (174.0 mph).
