The world's most powerful 5-cylinder series engine

The world's most powerful 5-cylinder series engine

In the Audi RS 3, the world's most powerful 5-cylinder series engine guarantees propulsion: the 2.5 TFSI. The turbo-charged 2.5-litre 5-cylinder engine with dual injection and up to 1.35-bar boost pressure generates up to 294 kW and 480 Newton metres. The typical rhythm sounds out immediately: 1-2-4-5-3.

More details

The 2.5 TFSI engine in detail

The unique ignition sequence gives the unusual 5-cylinder basic concept a backdrop of sound that is unmistakable, and can be influenced by the valve control provided by the RS exhaust system. Compact dimensions, an aluminium crankcase and numerous design details reduce the weight by 26 kg, compared to its predecessor. And it is even more efficient, despite the increase in performance. Experience immediate response and impressive power delivery over the entire speed range.

 

Despite all the sportiness, it is also incredibly efficient - thanks to the start-stop system and regenerative braking. For the ninth year in a row, the engine has won the "International Engine of the Year Award" for its power, torque and efficiency, combined with its typical sound.
