Irresistible power

You feel the power under the bonnet of the Audi RS5 Coupé as soon as you start the ignition. It is generated by the 4.2 litre V8 FSI® engine: this has FSI® direct fuel injection technology, which we brought from the racing track to the road, and works with our tried-and-trusted high-rev concept (HRC).

V8 FSI® engine


FSI® Getting more out of every drop of petrol. FSI® technology directly injects the fuel into the combustion chamber where it is highly compressed. This produces a very even fuel/air mixture, leading to particularly efficient combustion and therefore to a better power delivery and power yield. In addition, the direct injection serves to cool the inside of the combustion chambers so that engine compression can be increased. This results in advantages for both power output and torque.
Another component for the irresistible power of the RS5: the high-rev concept (HRC). It provides you with high power yield per litre of displacement coupled with even power delivery over the whole speed range. The extremely agile and free-revving engine reacts immediately and also produces a rich and full sound.
The high-power engine in the Audi RS5 Coupé permits engine speed ranges of up to 8,500 rpm. It reaches its maximum torque of 430 Nm at engine speeds of between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm, with at least 90% of the power available in a wide range of between 3,000 and 8,000 rpm. This lets the RS5 sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.5 seconds – and then ease to the 200 km/h mark in a further 10.9 seconds.
