Meet the Audi stand at the current Geneva Motor Show: this time, the glorious carmaker chose a hitting-and-winning design strategy. Several fabulous concepts including even the RS5 DTM racer featuring cutting edge design really shine the Geneva floor. Let’s take a closer look at them.
First of all, the all-new RS5 Coupe that sparkles with the smart design language. The new RS5 Coupe is powered by a Porsche-sourced 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 (instead of a V8 one) delivering 444 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque through all-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission. As a result, this is apparently perfect for a 3.9-seconds sprint to 62mph, with a 155-mph top speed limiter.
Next, the 2017 RS5 DTM racer follows closely by the RS5 Coupe. And here’s an unexpected move as the DTM racer doesn’t share its platform with the RS production version featuring a carbon-fuber monocoque chassis, rear-wheel-drive system along with a 4.0-liter V8. The racer is believed to deliver more than 500 horsepower. All we can do is waiting for Hockenheim where the new DTM season starts.
Get over the RS badges, Audi also wrapped off its Q8 Sport Concept here. This tangerine sheet of metal boasts bedazzle performance using an electric supercharger and a hybrid V6. The 3.0-liter engine along with the forced induction system provide the output of 476 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque accelerating 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds.
