Audi has launched the R S 5 Coupé in India, priced at Rs. 76 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The R S 5 Coupé is powered by a 4.2 liter FSI V8 motor which produces 450 hp of power at 8,250 rpm, and peak torque of 430 Nm between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. . What this translates into is a 0 – 100 kmph time of just 4.6 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 280 kmph. Mated to a seven-speed S tronic shift, the dual-clutch transmission enables gear shifts to be executed in a few hundredths of a second.
“With its athletic and powerful identity, spontaneous responsiveness and extraordinarily high revving, the new Audi R S 5 is the ideal high performance coupé which embodies the core essence of our brand DNA, ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’. Equipped with a powerful V8 engine, a new permanent all – wheel drive system and a whole series of performance characteristics, the Audi R S 5 truly epitomizes progressiveness and is unmatched in terms of style, performance and driving dynamics. I am confident that the launch of the new Audi R S 5 will further help us consolidate our position in the sports car segment,” Mr. Michael Perschke, Head – Audi India, said.
