Our long history of motorsport success is evident throughout the RS 5. Some of the world’s toughest races have taught us how to propel our cars ever more powerfully, responsively and efficiently. The RS 5’s engine epitomises this knowledge. A close relative of the V10 in the Audi R8, the 4.2 V8 FSI® engine develops 450 horsepower and transmits a maximum of 430 Nm of torque. However, you’ll see as you read on, there’s much more to the RS 5 than thrilling power and handling – but we think you’ll agree that these qualities make an excellent place to start.
