Tuned, 500 PS Audi RS5 Coupe Hits Top Speed On The Autobahn | Feature

The is one of the hottest cars in its segment. It’s Ingolstadt’s answer to the BMW M4 and Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe, and it’s mighty impressive on the go.

Even without any mods in the engine compartment, the Audi RS5 Coupe is a neck-snapping fast car as its twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 produces a healthy 450 PS (444 hp / 331 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque.

The 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint is covered in 3.9 seconds, and with the speed limiter removed, it maxes out at 280 km/h (174 mph). Also, despite this performance, official consumption is just 8.7 l/100 km (27 mpg US / 32 mpg UK) on average and CO2 emissions are 197 g/km.

The ECU tune and custom exhaust system have raised the total output to 500 PS (493 hp / 368 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. The aftermarket specialist doesn’t say how quick their RS5 Coupe is, but we guess it must improve on the model’s numbers a little bit.

In addition to the mechanical upgrades, the tuner has other parts in , including the coilover suspension kit, gold accents for the exterior and 21-inch rims with a matte black look. But you won’t get to see its exterior, as the following video shows it accelerating like crazy on the German and reaching a top speed of 284 km/h (176 mph), as indicated by the digital speedometer.
