    Re: AUDI RS5 first shots

    Thanks Ron. The question is, will Audi go chasing GT-R with a RS6 engine or does it just settle for its traditional rivals and put the RS4 engine in there. I'll definitely buy it if it is the former. S5 is beautiful, and RS5 will be even better!

    The V10 would make it front-heavy. That said, even a 4.2 TT would be enough for 500+ PS.

    Re: AUDI RS5 first shots

    It will be 4.2L NA with about 450hp....

    BUT, check this out as well:

    Re: AUDI RS5 first shots

    Interesting. They would have to release that soon otherwise it will be too close to the RS5 launch. But 450hp RS5 isn't much when you consider that you could get almost 500hp out of a C63 by simply reflashing the ECU. And I can guarantee that if it is going to be around 450hp, it will be more than 451 as that is what C63 produces.

    Why don't you hold off your judgment until you've actually seen the car released?

    Well, I could say that all Merc/AMG is producing is overpriced, overpowered and under-tractioned cars... Given the choice I would take Audi

    When it comes to power, too much is never enough.

    Re: AUDI RS5 first shots

    When it has to compete against an M3 and AMGc63. The RS4 had 420 hp and it was no match for the competing cars. 30 hp bump is negligible for such a heavy car.

    Audi has the opportunity to leapfrog the the other two companies with a turbo charge 4.2 V8, which would provide gobs more torque, but chose not to do so for fear it will outperform the true exotic R8.

    Re: AUDI RS5 first shots

    I would rather like to see 3.xL V8 with turbos than this old gas guzzling tech.
    4.2L does sounds nice but modern and efficient it is not.

    I have to disagree with you here. Why? NEW is NOT always better.

    Example 1.

    Current VW Golf GTI engine from 113 family is better then new 888 family engine in new Scirocco. Old engine has much better throttle response. Also DSG in Scirocco is tuned to use almost NO engine brake at all(truth even in GTI DSG engine brake is used very rare).

    Some journalist tried new S4(preproduction model) with manual gearbox and prefered current S5 since it has much more linear power delivery and way better throttle response then new 3.0TFSI Kompressor in S4...


    Re: Real AUDI RS5 ?

    I am not sure if this is the real thing. Read the first headings: V8 turbo coupe finally an M3 beater? Surely if it is V8 Turbo it won't be 450bhp? (it said 450bhp on the second pic). This could just be speculation by Car magazine and a photoshop.

    Now all we have to do in NA is convince Audi to bring it over... as they decided not to do with the RS6.

    I prefer "Audi's GT-R" to Nissan's...

    Re: Real AUDI RS5 ?

    Nice car I like it!

    Re: Real AUDI RS5 ?

    4trac, I definitely prefer Audi's GTR over Nissan's as well! Unfortunately I think Nissan's GTR is going to blow is out of the water...
