    Audi Amps Up RS: The horsepower war reaches Inglolstadt

    By Paul Horrell

    Audi's quattro GmbH division, responsible for the RS models and the new R8, is working on a turbo TT RS, a V-8 RS5, and a V-10 RS6. We're not going to see RS versions of every Audi, though. In that sense, RS is to Audi more like M is to BMW than AMG is to Benz. AMG builds super-hot editions of everything in its lineup; M and RS are more selective.

    The Additions To The RS Arsenal

    TT RS. A high-pressure turbocharged four-cylinder engine with about 300 horsepower will define the hottest TT. Naturally it'll have quattro drive, and the weight will reportedly be comfortably below 3000 pounds. On sale in about two years.

    RS6. The current 435-horsepower V-10 will be more aggressively tuned to tip past 500 horsepower, with braking and tires to match. The torque bias will be to the rear, and wider fender flares and deep front and rear fascias will tip off onlookers. Launches after the TT RS.

    RS5. The A5 two-door coupe was set for a Geneva debut. The A5 is a two-door version of the A4, and, within a couple years, quattro will wedge the R8's mighty V-8 into it, offering 420 horsepower and the RS4's suspension mods.

    Re: New RS Audi models

    RS6 would be interesting since it has to compete with E65 514 hp engine.

    I hope the RS6 will be NA engine not turbo charged.

    They will have to top the BMW M5 in performance, so they will need more power. I hope for a turbocharged version.

    Re: New RS Audi models

    The Lamborghini V10 will get 550 HP without a turbo by the time the RS6 arrives, so 500-520 HP in the RS6 (also normally aspirated) is a possibility.

    But will it be enough to match the M5? Remember, the M5 is already putting out over 530 bhp stock, is lighter and only has RWD.

    Re: New RS Audi models

    ...Audi needs efficient gearbox a la 7speed S-Tronic(DSG) for new RS6 IMO.

    Engine will be NA 5.2L V10 with 500-520hp, same engine will be in R8 as well(but, only as manual and R-Tronic).

    Re: New RS Audi models

    A new 7 speed DSG gearbox for high-power engines is in development process.

    The M5 got 507bhp, the E63 got 515bhp - i guess the RS6 will have atleast 520-530bhp..
    and i won't be surprised if it will have about 550.
    if they will put both turbo & super chargers in the V10 5.2 engine it will be fabulous!.. but i guess they wont
    one thing you have to keep in mind is that the RS6 will be much heavier than the Gallardo, so they will need more torque in lower rpm

    Re: New RS Audi models

    I wonder what become if they put rs4 engine in to TT.

    That would be a real mini-beast.

    No. The RS6 is too heavy. It's going to need a torque laden TC engine.

    Re: New RS Audi models

    I agree about needing the S tronic. I wonder what is holding this up?
