    B9 S5 or RS5 électric turbo for low RPM boost

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I read somewhere that either the B9 S5 or RS5 is having a low rpm pressure boost provided by a electric turbo build by Valeo. I think it was using 70volts or so. Was it a dream or is it the reality? Please let me know. I'm Curious.

    The RS5 was rumored to have an electric turbocharger during development, but that never came to fruition.

    Interesting idea. But, I think I would likely view that as "Just one more thang"...these modern cars are complicated enough thanks to our overly intrusive government trying to design our cars.

    The SQ7 uses that feature and it was rumoured the RS5 would implement it too but it didn't happen.

    They had it in that diesel RS5 prototype a few years back, that may be where the idea came from.
