Audi RS4 and RS5 will get V8 engine
Fourtitude revealed the first official information about the future RS4 and RS5. It seems the car will feature the same V8 engine. Power will come from a 4.0 TFSI turbocharged engine, same that will be used for the next-generation A8. This means the output will be around 470 hp.
The engine will be mated to Audi’s latest 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission (a.k.a. DSG). The new RS cars will also benefit from Audi Drive Select (ADS) - controlling suspension, steering weight and ratio, throttle mapping, and shift points on S-tronic models.
Considering that spy shots of the RS4 have been circulating on the internet for a long time now, we presume the car is about its debut. Unlike the RS5, which there have been no spy images.
