The 4.0 TFSI engine is an ideal example of Audi’s downsizing strategy in the high-performance category. The twin-turbo V8 that powers the new Audi RS 6 Avant could provide awe-inspiring power for every driving situation, thanks to its displacement of 3,993 cc. The engine reaches a maximum 412 kW (560 hp) of output between 5,700 and 6,600 rpm, with a constant 700 Nm (516.29 lb-ft) of torque available between 1,750 and 5,500 rpm.
The engine is able to quickly develop impressive pulling power develops thanks to the two large twin-scroll turbochargers mounted together with the intercooler in the inside V of the cylinder banks. The exhaust side of the cylinder heads is also placed on the inside, with the intake side outside. This allows for a compact design and short gas paths with minimal flow losses.
