• AWE-Tuning's exhaust makes the Audi RS5 4.2 FSI V8 sounds orgasmic - Video

      The new Audi RS5 is absolutely beautiful, a gorgeous design inside and out. And with a 4.2 FSI V8 revving to 8500 rpm it seems criminal to not let the motor play the song of its people for the world to hear. An article was posted regarding the "Track" and "Touring" versions of the exhaust from AWE-Tuning detailing the minor horsepower gains (only 3 horses as the 4.2 FSI motor is pretty high strung in stock form) but no sound clip was included. AWE-Tuning uploaded a sound clip of the track edition exhaust recently and let's just say sold.

      The car sounds glorious. With every rev it's as if one releases a stampede of German horses all running in perfect harmony. Yes, Audi will be switching from this motor for the next generation RS5 and the 4.2 FSI is at the end of its life but this video reminds us that there are some things high revving NA motors will always do better. Things like the exhaust note you are about to hear:

        Not sure, RS5 redlines at 8,500. Didn't sound like the gears were held that long, maybe?
