Audi RS5 TDI Concept Celebrates 25 Years of the TDI

Powered by a 385-hp supercharged 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6.

Audi is marking the 25th anniversary of its TDI engine by creating the RS5 TDI concept, unveiled at AMI Leipzig. Based on the RS5 Coupe, the concept swaps the 4.2-liter V8 for a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 TDI that comes equipped with an electrically-driven supercharger Audi says will eliminate turbo lag. Rated at 385 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, the engine is mated to an eight-speed auto and quattro all-wheel-drive system, enabling the coupe to sprint from 0-62 mph in four seconds, hit a top speed of over 174 mph, and return 47 mpg.
