Just like the entire A5 model family, the new Audi RS5 Coupe also benefits from a drastic reduction in weight. It weighs in at 1,655 kilograms (3,648.7 lb) - 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) less than previously. The body of the new RS5 Coupe is among the lightest in the segment. Thanks to geometrical lightweight construction and an intelligent mix of materials, it weighs 15 kilograms (33.1 lb) less than the body of the previous model. The module cross member under the instrument panel, for instance, consists of extruded aluminum profiles and sheets, and the front cross member is an extruded profile.
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.
Audi RS5 Coupe an emotively elegant expression. For the first time, it now has a three-dimensional form and thus creates interplay between light and shadow. quattro blisters on the flanks emphasize the pronounced bulges over the wheel arches, which have been widened by 15 millimeters (0.6 in). The widened door sills are painted in the vehicle color and also feature inserts in black or optionally carbon. The exterior mirror housings are in matt aluminum look and optionally also in carbon, in the vehicle color or in black.
