Audi has a long tradition with five-cylinder engines. Honoured with the “International Engine of the Year Award”*, the engine combines scintillating performance, enormous torque and a robust sound. The result: an unmistakable performance and a feeling that will make your skin tingle.
The 2.5 litre TFSI engine in the Audi RS 3 is a genuine high-performance engine. It generates 250 kW of power from 2,480 cc of displacement and provides a full 450 Nm of torque in the 1,600-5,300 rpm range. On the one hand, this ensures effortless power delivery right from the bottom of the rev range, and on the other, gives it enormous sprinting capacity up to its rev limit of 6,800 rpm.
The unusual five-cylinder design gives the Audi RS 3 an unmistakable sound signature due to its firing order. It also offers the advantages of compact measurements and a low weight, which accommodates the vehicle layout well and positively influences the axle load distribution.
The two Audi core technologies of turbocharging and direct petrol injection also ensure that this engine provides high power output, impressive torque and efficiency. Pneumatically controlled valves set the air flowing into the cylinder in a rotating motion. In the Audi RS 3 you can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds – right up to a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically regulated).
*The prestigious "International Engine of the Year Awards" are presented by Great Britain’s leading car magazines.
