C7 Audi RS6 Avant spotted basically undisguised - Will we get a sedan version?
Here are spyphotos of the upcoming Audi RS6 which will be competing with the BMW M5, Mercedes E63 AMG, and Panamera Turbo. The vehicle looks great with its aggressive widebody work and reworked front/rear bumpers. The RS6 will be the only other all wheel drive entry in the luxury super sedan category. It will also be sporting the same 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 used in the Audi S8. We wonder if it will be in a higher state of tune though as in the S8 it only puts out 512 horsepower which is not going to cut it against the competition this generation.
The USA will likely not be getting the avant. This brings the question of whether we will see a sedan version. Audi sat out the last round in the USA with their RS6 sedan with the twin turbo V10 that did not make the trip across the pond. Frankly, this RS6 with a smaller motor seems almost like a step back. Still, we hope we get the sedan in the USA this time if they make it.
