40 years of Audi five-cylinder engines
- Five-cylinder engine delivering 136 hp presented for the first time in 1976 in the Audi 100
- Successful engine concept for series production and rallying
- 2.5 TFSI voted “Engine of the Year” seven times in a row since 2010
40 years ago, Audi presented the first five-cylinder gasoline engine in the second-generation Audi 100. Enhancements and new developments followed, with turbocharging, emissions control and four-valve technology, rally engines and five-cylinder diesel units. Today, the 2.5 TFSI in the Audi RS 3 Sportback* and in the Audi TT RS* carries on the great tradition of five-cylinder powerplants.
