    1. Spied: Audi RS 6 Avant at Nurburgring



      How do you know a car is nearing production? When it has its coming out party at the Nurburgring. We've seen A6 and A7 mules that we thought were RS mules before but there's no question about this Avant. Those bolstered fender flares are one easy spot but the other is a disguised fascia nearly identical to RS 4 mules before that car was revealed.

      Under the hood we expect to see a higher-powered variation of ...
    2. Breaking: Audi RS 6 Test Mule Spied Cold Weather Testing



      Just in from spy photographers in the coldest areas of Sweden are shots of one very interesting looking black A6-based Avant. With more aggressive front fascia (spotted on some earlier test mules) a wider track and add-on fender flares, there's no doubting that this is a preproduction prototype of the RS 6 Avant. Big ceramic brakes underneath A8 wheels ...
    3. B8 Audi RS 4 Project Could Be Dead Says Car & Driver Insider



      Car & Driver's resident German insider Jens Meiners has published his monthly report from the continent and we're concerned about one of his assertions. If Meiners' assertion is correct, the new B8 RS 4 program has been killed in the wake of Audi's decision to build a next-generation RS 6. It's assumed the RS 6 will be powered by a more potent ...
    4. Sign This Petition: Enable NHTSA to Accept Crash Test Data from Foreign Nations So Cars Like the Audi RS 6 Can Be Imported



      Here in the Fourtitude offices, we usually don't sign petitions short of lobbying to get Audi to bring over a car like the TT RS. However, we'll make an exception when it comes to going a step above and getting the American government to lower restrictions on private owners petitioning for importation eligibility. ...
    5. New Angles of that Audi RS 6 Test Mule in North America from AutoExpress



      Remember that group of Audi test mules including believed RS 6 Avant and RS 7 shot in North America last week? Brit automotive website AutoExpress has published a new set of stills that depict the RS 6 Avant with much more clarity thanks to a plethora of angles.

    6. Another Audi RS 7 Spy Mule Surfaces, This Time in USA and Under Hood Photos Included



      Photos surfaced earlier today on Quattroworld of what appears to be an RS 7 test mule shot near Las Vegas. On the surface, this matte black A7 tester features a larger front fascia that, while not far from the chin of the freshly facelifted S5, is both larger and more animated. Taking the image and blowing up the front fascia section (above) reveals a chin identical to the gloss black test mule spied testing in Spain in late ...
    7. Ultimate Twin Turbo B7 Audi RS 4 Build Update on Eurotuner



      If we had to imagine the ultimate B7 RS 4 build, we'd likely not be far from the project currently built by Advance Technologies, HT Motorsport and EFI Express for owner Bryan Whitmore. Effectively Whitmore wanted a twin turbo 4.2 FSI engine from the C5 RS 6 swapped into his RS 4. And while that might be enough to satisfy most, Bryan and his burgeoning team are going so, so much ...
    8. Audi RS 6 Renders Take Stab at Look of Next-Gen C7 RS Wagen



      Check out this render of the next-generation RS 6. It's a bit premature to guess how accurate it is but the look is pretty cool nonetheless.

      So what do we know of the RS 6? We do expect there will be one and it'll be powered by a higher-hp version of the upcoming 4.0T FSI. We don't expect the RS 6 to bow though before next year's Geneva show because the S6, S7 and S8 all have to bow before ...
    9. 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant Rendered by Acerbus



      We're going to an Acerbus render for the second time today and for good reason. Having gone ahead and imagineered an Avant version of the new C7 A6, Acerbus also went ahead and tailroed it in RS spec. As with his usual work, Acerbus kept it with knwon styling cues such as oval rims, RS 5/ TT RS style rear valance and subtle box flares as seen on the current RS 6.

      So What Do We Think?
      The ...
    10. Rumor Alert: New 4.0T Details from AutoCar by Way of Bentley



      We first heard about the upcoming 4.0T FSI several years ago from a highly-placed source as a likely candidate for future S8, S6, S7 and even RS variants as Audi downsizes out of V10s. We've even written about it several times ( HERE , HERE , HERE , and HERE ). Bentley even confirmed their own intent to use the motor in their Paris press release about the ...
