Just how inspired Audi is by this challenge can be seen in Barcelona. It reflects the very essence of the company and its employees. Vorsprung is in Audi’s DNA – it describes the approach that the company has always taken when driving forward its activities. An approach that Audi will also continue to pursue in the future, ensuring customers are offered solutions that create Vorsprung for them too.

    TechDay Combustion Engine Technology

    V engines from the Four Rings have been around for 29 years – the 3.6-liter eight-cylinder engine made its debut in the Audi V8 in 1988. A 2.8-liter V6 followed two years later, in the Audi 100. Things then really took off in the 1990s: in 1997 the world’s first V6 TDI appeared with the 2.5 TDI, followed in 1998 by the V8 TDI with a displacement of 3.3 liters. And in 2000 the V6 biturbo with 2.7 liters’ displacement was a very special highlight: the 279 kW (380 hp) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) of torque driving the Audi RS 4 Avant set the bar at a totally new level in the midsize category. Today, Audi uses V6 and V8 engines in all models based on the modular longitudinal platform, namely in the Audi A4, A5, A6, A8, Q5 and Q7 series. The V6 units – gasoline as well as diesel engines – operate with a displacement of 3.0 liters, and 4.0 liters in the case of the V8 engines. Their power output ranges from 160 kW (218 hp) to 445 kW (605 hp). The new 2.9 liter V6 engine in the Audi RS 5 (combined fuel consumption: 8.7 l/100 km (27.0 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions: 197 g/km (317.0 g/mi)) is a special case. Owing to the increased power and therefore greater stress on the engine, the displacement was reduced by 0.1 liters. Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of all new passenger car models,” which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de).

    AUDI AG after three quarters: key financials impacted by extraordinary factors

    The third quarter of this year featured numerous adverse factors for the Audi Group: As expected, restrictions in the sales portfolio caused by the changeover to WLTP had an increasingly negative effect. At the same time, the densely packed program of phase-outs and ramp-ups in connection with the broadest model initiative in Audi’s history reached its peak with high ramp-up costs in the second half of the year. As a result of an administrative order issued by the Munich II Public Prosecutor’s Office imposing a fine in connection with the diesel issue, AUDI AG reports special items of €800 million at the end of the third quarter. At €44.3 billion, the Audi Group’s revenue for the period from January through September reached the previous year’s level. After special items, operating profit for the first nine months amounted to €2.9 billion; adjusted for special items, it was €3.7 billion and thus moderately below the prior-year figure. This results in an operating return on sales before special items of 8.3 percent. The successful joint venture business in China is not included in this figure and is shown in the significantly increased financial result.

    TechDay on Combustion Engine Technology

    V engines from the Four Rings have been around for 29 years – the 3.6-liter eight-cylinder engine made its debut in the Audi V8 in 1988. A 2.8-liter V6 followed two years later, in the Audi 100. Things then really took off in the 1990s: in 1997 the world’s first V6 TDI appeared with the 2.5 TDI, followed in 1998 by the V8 TDI with a displacement of 3.3 liters. And in 2000 the V6 biturbo with 2.7 liters’ displacement was a very special highlight: the 279 kW (380 hp) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) of torque driving the Audi RS 4 Avant set the bar at a totally new level in the midsize category. Today, Audi uses V6 and V8 engines in all models based on the modular longitudinal platform, namely in the Audi A4, A5, A6, A8, Q5 and Q7 series. The V6 units – gasoline as well as diesel engines – operate with a displacement of 3.0 liters, and 4.0 liters in the case of the V8 engines. Their power output ranges from 160 kW (218 hp) to 445 kW (605 hp). The new 2.9 liter V6 engine in the Audi RS 5 (combined fuel consumption: 8.7 l/100 km (27.0 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions: 197 g/km (317.0 g/mi)) is a special case. Owing to the increased power and therefore greater stress on the engine, the displacement was reduced by 0.1 liters.

In the 1980s they made a decisive contribution to furthering the success of the brand both in motor sports and on the road. After a break of many years, they made a comeback in 2009 when the 2.5 TFSI was fitted in the Audi TT RS. In 2011, the first generation of the RS 3 Sportback followed, in 2013 the RS Q3 and in 2015 the second edition of the RS 3 Sportback. The RS 3 Sportback has now been modified considerably. It is now joined by the new RS 3 Sedan with which the brand is expanding its offering at an international level. It is the first compact Audi Sedan to bear the RS label as well as being the first to feature a transversely-mounted five-cylinder engine. The pioneer of this design was the Audi A3 clubsport quattro concept study from 2014. “The five-cylinder engine is a legendary element of our company’s DNA,” says Stephan Winkelmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “Now, with 400 hp, it will take up pole position worldwide – and not only in the RS 3 Sportback but also in the RS 3 Sedan. Both models will offer our customers an attractive entry into the RS world.”
