Audi RS4, RS5 hardcore ‘Competition’ upgrade is coming

Are the ‘regular’ Audi RS4 and RS5 insufficiently fast and agile for you? The good news is waiting.

Without revealing the exact time, the company’s Australian arm said today that it will offer recently released competition packages – developed by Audi Sport GmbH to enhance the performance of its coupe, fastback and wagon heroes.

“The local availability of competition packages has not yet been confirmed and will be contacted later,” says Audi Australia. This suggests that this is a formality, we are not sure exactly when.

Includes manually adjustable coilover, cutting ride height up to 20mm, depending on your overall cost. A higher spring rate, three-way adjustable damper, and stiffer stabilizers round out the rigid suspension.

In addition, Audi’s Sporting Division has fixed dynamic steering in a 1: 13.1 ratio, and Quattro has upgraded the sport differential of the AWD system – most notably in the ‘Dynamic’ driving mode setting.

Ingolstadt marque says that a new data set with altered parameters in the control unit emphasizes the rear axle, perhaps for oversteer-y fun.

Adding Audi, the software in the transmission control unit is updated with a faster transfer time and a “significant increase in the number of different driving modes”.

Audi says higher mobility “requires an increase in negative acceleration”, so it has added the available Pirelli P Zero Corsa rubber, new tuned ABS software, and RS ceramic brakes that reduce the two-meter distance from demanding stopping distance from 100km / h. .

A new RS ‘Sports Exhaust System Plus’, with tailpipes in a matte black color, offers a more intense sound pattern, not only through the exhaust system, but also due to the reduced insulation between the engine bogie and the interior – which also weighs 8 kg.

Audi says the RS4 Avant with Competition Plus package goes from zero to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds, an improvement of 0.2s over the standard model. The RS5 and RS5 Sportback sprint in 3.8 seconds, an improvement of 0.1 seconds.

Although the 331kW and 600Nm biturbo V6 engines have the same output, both competing packages have the maximum speed of 290km / h.

According to the design, the seats have a black piano shell and can be trimmed with Dynamica (suede made in part with PET fiber) and Nappa leather.

The bonnet and boot lid have four rings, as well as model lettering, a glossy black finish, and an alternative to sebring black paint. Customers can also add the wheel of high-shine competition to the Phantom Black.

In Europe, the competition packages will cost 7875 euros ($ 11,860) and 11,875 euros ($ 17,900).
