The maximum torque is 430 Nm, which is available between 4000 and 6000 rpm. The engine’s inlet system is slid so that it can breathe more freely, and now has a double inlet. The engine in the Audi RS4 often did not get its power because he did not get enough air.
For the time being, the RS5 standard comes with a 7-speed S tronic dual-coupler. Whether a handbrake six-speed gearbox is available later is not known. The Quattro four-wheel drive is traditionally standard on the 2017 Audi RS5 and can optionally be equipped with the new sports differential, known as the Audi S4.
