Audi will be introducing the new RS5 TDI Concept car during the AMI Leipzig automotive event, as it has recently announced.
The German based automaker Audi will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the TDI engine by unveiling the new RS5 TDI Concept car, during the AMI Leipzig event. The model in question is based, as expected, on the RS5 Coupe, but it drops the 4.2 liter V8 petrol engine for this new 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 TDI, which has been equipped with an electrically driven supercharger, promising to eliminate the turbo lag.
Audi says that the total output of the new 3.0 liter V6 TDI engine stands at an impressive 385 HP (283 kW) and an even more impressive peak torque of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft). The unit is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission, sending power to the Quattro all-wheel drive system. thanks to this setup, the Audi RS5 TDI Concept can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). The average fuel consumption stands at less than 5 liters burned every 100 km (56.4 mpg UK / 47 mpg US).
