Audi RS: dedicated to real world performance
Power can be addictive, but for Audi, power is only valuable if it can be exercised. That means power for the real world; real roads, real drivers, real weather. Not just power to wheel but power to wheel to road.
The Audi RS engineers are evangelical about this ‘for-real’ approach, optimising available power to give the highest possible performance in the greatest number of situations.
RS means discernment; for those who share a similar commitment, and know what real high performance is about. It may deliver extreme performance but it’s understated, for those who truly know.
Who we are
What we do
Other manufacturers start by emulating a track car and compromise it to make it road-worthy. We start with our best road car and use Vorsprung durch Technik to maximise its performance.
From efficient, turbo charged engines and quattro AWD, to dynamic ride control and torque vectoring, these technologies show unwavering dedication to extreme real-life performance, not just power.
How we test
RS is the only manufacturer to do their endurance testing at Nurburging - the hardest simulation of real life there is. Run at high speed for 8,000 km on the ring over two weeks, wet and dry, equivalent to 120,000km on public roads.
