Bathed in black, the interior is of an extremely high standard and sportily equipped. RS sport seats - optionally available in fine Nappa leather with honeycomb pattern - and the flat-bottomed RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel underscore the character of the high-performance Coupe in the interior as well. The steering wheel rim bears the RS badge, as do the front seat backrests and the shift gate. Special RS displays in the Audi virtual cockpit provide information on tire pressure, torque and g-forces. A shift light prompts the driver to upshift upon reaching the rev limit. The RS design package 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.
Both turbochargers of the 2.9 TFSI 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. In the NEDC, the V6 bi-turbo consumes just 8.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (27.0 US mpg), which corresponds to 197 grams of CO2 per kilometer (317.0 g/mi). This is an efficiency gain of 17 percent over the previous model. Also beneficial for the new Audi RS5 Coupe is a drastic reduction in weight. The vehicle weighs in at 1,655 kilograms (3,648.7 lb) - 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) less than previously. A carbon roof with visible fiber structure is also available as an option.
In comparison with the A5 Coupe, the Singleframe radiator grille appears broader and flatter thanks to its new honeycomb structure. It bears both the quattro lettering and the RS5 emblem. Beneath it, a blade in contrasting color runs between the air inlets, connecting these with one another. These also adopt the three-dimensional honeycomb structure and underline the dynamism of the RS5 Coupe.
An important component of the B-cycle combustion process is the central position of the injectors in the combustion chamber. In the area around the inlet valve, this makes possible a geometry which, in interaction with the inlet ports, allows for targeted mixing up of the gas charge. The common-rail system injects the fuel into the combustion chamber with 250 bar of pressure - the high injection pressure ensures a homogeneous spray pattern and consequently a uniform propagation of the flame front.
