Spied!!! Audi RS6 Testing At Nürburgring


Click to View Larger Image

To go up against Mercedes E63 AMG and BMWs M5, Audi is planning to offer the hot RS6. Priddy’s ninjas caught it here, at the Nrburgring, while it was undergoing some late prototype testing this week.

The larger air intakes in the front bumper and the wider fenders and diffuser at the rear, are the key clues as to the true identity of this Audi. And while the S models have four round exhaust pipes, the RS models will receive oval pipes as their distinguishing feature.

We have heard that the rumors about a twin turbo V10 are false, and that the RS6 will instead be powered by a blown V8 producing over 600hp. Could Audi finally be joining the proverbial German horsepower pissing contest? We can only hope!

The RS6 will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September

    So this is the new RS6? Can we say 550hp? How about 0-60 in 4.3-4.5?

    How about top speed, 155, but with limiter off, over 200?

    That would be nice.

    This would be nice.

    This is, the RS6.

    If you stare too long you will go blind. That’s an interesting way of using flares. I guess with the A6 lines you can’t just slap on some bubble butt flares like the RS4.

    Shoooot. There goes my dreams of an R8. As the current owner of an RS6, I can tell you that it is truly a fine machine. Chipped it produces 515 bhp. I can only imagine what 600 would do. Have to save my 19 inch BBS LMs for it. Now, how do I tell the spousal unit………?

    Cant they work on the styling a bit on those Audi’s. Too plain and too much alike.
    The R8 seemed like a miracle, and a long time coming.
    What is the problem with the design dept, dont they want to sell more cars or what?
    Thats the only thing keeping sales down, engineering and all else is superb.
    Hire an Italian if necessary!
