2013 Audi RS5 Owners Manual – We have stood by quietly for a long time to see the 2013 Audi RS5 on our shores. In 2010, we drove the RS5 in Germany, where we set it in opposition to the Cadillac CTS-V and BMW M3 on the superhighway and at the Nürburgring; lamentably for Audi, its vehicle completed last. In any case, among that gathering, where the least incredible part stuffed 414 hp, there weren’t any washouts, simply various vehicles hued by changing shades of enormity.
2013 Audi RS5 Smooth Bellow
The two year rest having dulled our aural review, the 2013 Audi RS5‘s booming fumes note seemed to be a lovely shock. Our test vehicle was outfitted with the $1000 sport exhaust and had a smooth, warm wavering out of gear, a riff that expanded in volume and fever once we sent the 4.2-liter normally suctioned V-8 toward its 8500-rpm cutoff. Folds in the fumes are shut at lower rpm yet open as fires up ascend to diminish back weight and siphon up the volume. The R8’s V-8 wishes it sounded this mean.
A look in the engine uncovers a motor that wouldn’t watch strange in a Ferrari. Red cam covers and a carbon-fiber-encrusted admission complex are unadulterated sight to behold, yet this V-8 is no poseur; it shows a similar readiness to turn and fast choke reaction as do the motors from Maranello. Having resisted the constrained acceptance pattern, this normally suctioned V-8 is graced with direct force conveyance, without any pinnacles or hiccups, and it floods consistently until the limiter cuts in. It’s a race-commendable motor, however dissimilar to the Cadillac CTS-V, BMW M3, and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, the 2013 Audi RS5 is sufficiently proficient to maintain a strategic distance from a gas-guzzler punishment. The EPA mileage numbers are relied upon to come in at 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the roadway.

In contrast to the heavenly TT RS, which is accessible in the U.S. exclusively with a six-speed manual, the RS5’s just gearbox is a seven-speed double grasp programmed. You won’t hear us denounce this transmission, however we are the Save the Manuals! group, all things considered, and would forfeit 10ths of a second in speeding up and lap times to have the option to work all the more intimately with this darling of a motor.
As far as concerns its, Audi is by all accounts extremely worried about those valuable 10ths, as it has allegedly accelerated the double grasp’s day of work times for 2013 by adjusting the transmission’s power through pressure. Movements are slammed off rapidly, however the last RS5 we drove slammed off shifts, as well, and whatever improvement exists is excessively little for us to see without having instrumented test numbers to back it up. Downshifts show up rapidly—so rapidly, truth be told, that the transmission once in a while pummels into a lower gear. When crawling to a stop, there’s an intermittent buck as the transmission chooses lower gears.
