Eleanor Norton Audi, October 13th , 2017. The 2.9 TFSI was derived from the 3.0 TFSI used in the Audi S5. Because of the greater forces inside the engine, the valve lift has been shortened by 3 millimeters (0.1 in) to 86 millimeters (3.4 in). With its unchanged bore of 84 millimeters (3.3 in), the displacement is 2,894 cm3. The crankcase integrates thin-walled cylinder liners made of gray cast iron and the crankshaft main bearing has a 2-millimeter (0.08 in) larger diameter compared with the 3.0 TFSI.
Eve Fitzgerald Audi, October 13th , 2017. The driver can select between the D and S modes and can use the special RS shift paddles on the steering wheel for manual gear changes. All commands are transmitted to the transmission electrically - by wire. The dynamic starting function controls starts with optimum traction. Using it, the Audi RS5 Coupe can unfold its full acceleration potential. Prerequisite: the ESC sport mode must be active and the selector lever must be in the S position.
Niamh Hart Audi, October 13th , 2017. "The new Audi RS5 Coupe is the gran turismo among the RS models from Audi Sport. The high-performance Coupe combines elegant aesthetics with high everyday usability. The car‘s V6 bi-turbo has been developed from the ground up and provides significantly more performance coupled with higher efficiency," said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Audi Sport GmbH, in describing the new model.
Caitlin Duncan Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Libby Wade Audi, October 13th , 2017. Hot-formed parts form the high-strength, crash-safe backbone of the occupant cell. They reinforce the transition from the front body to the interior, the front zone of the roof frame, the B-pillars, side sills and parts of the floor. The proportion of these parts in the body structure is 17 percent. A carbon roof with visible fiber structure is also available as an option, delivering a further weight saving of 3 kilograms (6.6 lb).
Mollie Slater Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Millie Lowe Audi, October 13th , 2017. Each of the two turbochargers on the 2.9 TFSI is assigned to a single cylinder bank and can build up a maximum of 0.95 bar charge pressure. Like with all new V6 and V8 engines from Audi, the turbochargers are installed within the 90-degree angle of the cylinder banks, and thus the exhaust side of the cylinder heads is on the inside, while the intake side is on the outside of the engine. This layout enables compact construction and short gas flow paths with minimal flow losses - the 2.9 TFSI responds extremely spontaneously to movement of the accelerator pedal.
Mollie Slater Audi, October 13th , 2017. The 2.9 TFSI V6 bi-turbo engine, which Audi developed from the ground up, offers sharp increases in power and efficiency as well as an incomparably full-bodied RS sound. It delivers 331 kW (450 hp). And it‘s peak torque of 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) - 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than the previous model - is available across a broad engine speed range from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm. The top model in the A5 family sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph) - with the optional RS dynamic package it can even reach 280 km/h (174.0 mph).
Eve Fitzgerald Audi, October 13th , 2017. The increased dimensions of the gran turismo, the 15-millimeter (0.6 in) longer wheelbase and more compact seats increase the space for the driver and passengers. The shoulder room in the front row of seats has been increased by 26 millimeters (1.0 in) and the knee room in the rear by 23 millimeters (0.9 in). The central armrest in the front with storage compartment, the big door pockets, two cup holders and a new, closed stowage compartment beneath the rotary light switch further increase the car‘s everyday usability. One standard feature offering additional convenience to the driver and front passenger is the seat belt height adjustment featuring extending and retracting power belt feeds. The rear bench seat provides space for two passengers and integrates a practical stowage tray between the two seats, as well as a folding armrest. The backrests can be folded forward in the ratio 40:20:40 using the remote unlocking feature in the trunk.
Shannon Griffin Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
