Default Next RS6 spotted

So, hopefully Audi continues to slap turbos on their RS cars



Powered by V10 turbo

Audi is completing the A6 range with the RS6 as an direct competitor to BMW's M5. Don't get fooled by the S6 stickers on this Audi. This is the brand new and still secret RS6. The bigger air intakes in the front bumper and the two big oval exhaust pipes are the key clues. While the S models have four round exhaust pipes, the RS models have two oval pipes as their distinguishing feature. Shown in these spy photos is the Avant (station wagon), but it will also be available as a saloon. Powered by the same V10 engine as the S6, but with some help from a turbo delivering about 520-550 bhp, this Audi will give the M5 and E63 AMG a strong challenge. The RS6 will debut in Geneva in March 2007.

Default Probably running into the same problem as the previous RS6

Too much heat, melting stuff inside, etc!

Default 520-550HP? Why not make a mark with 600? If you're going to be obscene, be overtly obscene.

Default Why not put the V12 TDI from the Q7 in it?

500PS = 493HP
1000 Nm = 738 lb ft

Monster torque FTW!

Default They will, you think audi is going to use hood vents like that for the RS6 when it goes production?

Maybe if Champion Racing was using the RS6 in the Speed GT.
