As standard, the RS5 Coupe rides on 19-inch lightweight forged wheels with 265/35 tires. Upon request, 20-inch wheels in various designs are available, among which the new, especially lightweight fully milled wheel. It uses 275/30 tires. Behind the big wheels are powerful RS steel brakes with perforated composite disks. At the front axle, these have a diameter of 375 millimeters (14.8 in), while at the rear, they measure 330 millimeters (13.0 in). The six-piston brake calipers with RS logos are painted in black, or optionally in red. Upon request, Audi can also equip the front axle with high-performance ceramic brakes featuring six-piston brake calipers and perforated disks with a diameter of 400 millimeters (15.7 in).
The chain drive uses a new concept to reduce the drive power required: the crankshaft drives the balancer shaft via gears, with the shaft lying far down in the V of the cylinder banks. From here chains run to the four camshaft sprockets. These are trioval in shape, i.e. they have a slightly triangular shape, in order to compensate for peak forces. The balancer shaft rotates on roller bearings with particularly low levels of friction.
The luggage compartment offers ten liters (0.4 cu ft) more volume than before. It now holds a best-in-segment value of 465 liters (16.4 cu ft). The tailgate opens automatically and the two-door Coupe can be ordered from Audi with optional sensor control. With this, a proximity sensor in the rear bumper reacts to a kicking motion. The tailgate unlocks and opens automatically if the optionally available advanced key is detected.
