QuoteDear Friends,as a tribute to 10 years RS6.COM, here are some answers...- the upcoming 3rd Audi RS 6 generation will only be available as estate wagon aka. the Avant.- due to missing marketing opportunities, the Audi RS 6 Avant will not be offered in the USA- there will be a Audi RS 7, sharing the drive concept with the Audi RS 6 Avant- the Audi RS 7 WILL BE OFFERED in the USA- the Audi RS 7 will be introduced first- interested in seeing the Audi RS 7 live? Get your NAIAS Tickets now- 0-100 km/h < 4.0 secLast but not least, it is in consideration to make all options available to the US Market. This would include the Ceramic Brakes as well as the revised speed limiter, Wheel options (up to 21") etc.Technical details, numbers are a no no... please understand. ...but you will not be disappointed.QishaPS: the Audi RS 5 Convertible is on schedule for the US Market as wellPPS: please note the chances for a Audi RS 6 Avant limited Edition ( 500 ) for the US Market has never been better than today. BUT AoA needs to hear you!
Quote from: AudiFan6 on Oct 12, 12, 14:45RS7, thats gonna be a stylish car. and same i wonder what they will do for a powerplant, i doubt this and really hope they dont just throw the S8 4.0T into these and say there RS cars. v10 is prob out of the question, so question is how much displacement will they go with on this as im 80% sure to be expecting a forced induction set-up (prob bi-turbo)
Quote from: yvrnycracer on Oct 12, 12, 14:55wouldn't be surprised if it was a tweaked V10TFSI (same way the did the RS4/5).The S8 motor from what I understand has different internals that the motor found in the S6/7 so it could potentially take slightly larger turbos although sub 4 second 0-60 is going to require some hefty power for a car of that size/weight.I just want to know how it will compare to the E/CLS 63 setup in price/power/options.

Quote from: germanspec on Oct 14, 12, 03:25I am sure that it will be a tweaked 4.0TT......there is no chance of a V10 with todays eco climate in Europe and North America. I would say that they will be gunning for the same output as the last gen RS6 but with a lighter package, DSG and better fuel economy.
QuoteThe latest news from Ingolstadt is that the 2013 Audi RS6 will be unveiled with the new twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8, uprated from the S6, S7 and S8 models. Autocar reports that the V8 unit could produce as much as 572bhp, just one extra horsepower over the C6 RS6. Torque is likely to be more than 516lb-ft.If the reports prove to be true, the 572bhp rating will place the 2013 Audi RS6 above its nearest rival, the BMW M5 which features 560hp. It should also be able to give the Panamera Turbo S a run for it's money too! Expect Audi's quattro four-wheel drive system to play its part, along with an active rear differential.Audi engineers have a choice between an eight-speed torque converter automatic gearbox or a newer seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox for the RS6. The RS6 is also expected to lose 100kg over the previous model thanks to use of aluminium and carbon fiber technologies!Audi have been spotted testing the RS6 at the Nürburgring recently. Expect to see it at Geneva next year!
