2018 Audi RS5 Specs


You know how we love V8 engines. And unfortunately, the new 2018 Audi RS5 is just another model that is not going to use it again.

With the new 2018 Audi RS5 you can expect to get a twin-turbo V6 engine instead. However, we are actually not as said as we could be since this is a powerful engine that is able to produce the same 450 of horsepower and 442 of torque – an additional 124 lb/ft.

One of the things that we are also loving about this engine is what Audi said about it. They created this engine from the ground to make sure it is not only compact as it allows the intake charge to remain cool during shorter runs. And this is absolutely crucial when you have a car with this kind of power.

In what concerns with the transmission, you can expect to get an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. All the 2018 Audi RS5 trim levels will incorporate the legendary Quattro all-wheel drive system.
