The S engine
The torque and acceleration will already impress in the first few metres. The 3.0 litre V6 TFSI engine generates 245 kW of power. An innovative mechanically driven supercharger system with intercooling is employed here and turns the 6-cylinder engine into a compact powerhouse with moderate fuel consumption. Just like the Audi A5 Coupé, the S5 Coupé has efficient TFSI® technology. This is assisted by the start-stop system that switches the engine off automatically in different standstill situations, and switches it on again when the brake is released. The S5 Coupé is available with the fast, 7-speed dual-clutch transmission S tronic® and quattro® permanent all-wheel drive.
The peak torque of 440 Nm is sure to impress you, as will the torque curve: with at least 90 % of the maximum torque being available across an engine speed range of 2,900 to 5,300 rpm. Thanks to its spontaneous responsiveness and exceptional power delivery across the entire engine speed range, the 6-cylinder engine promotes a particularly dynamic driving style. That way, it accelerates the S5 Coupé from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds.
