The Audi RS5 features a new 4.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 with 444 bhp (331 kW; 450 PS) and 317 lb·ft (430 N·m) of torque. The engine is a re-worked version of the old RS4/R8 V8, which is closely related to the V10 in the R8. The car’s sole transmission in Europe is a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The BMW M3 ( Edition Model – last model ): The V8 high-speed power unit of the BMW M3 develops maximum output of 309 kW/420 hp from 4.0 litres.
Power is transmitted to the rear wheels either through the six-speed manual gearbox featured as standard or through the optional M double-clutch gearbox with Drivelogic enhancing both the dynamic performance and the all-round efficiency of the BMW M3 all in one. In this case acceleration to 100 km/h comes in 4.6 seconds (six-speed manual: 4.8 seconds) and average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle is 11.9 litres/23.7 mpg imp (six-speed manual: 12.4 litres/22.8 mpg imp)/100 kilometres.
The BMW M3 comes as standard with a lightweight carbon roof, while the options include Electronic Damper Control and the M Drive menu enabling the driver to configure individual, M-specific suspension and drivetrain functions just right for his personal style.
