    Dear Friends,

    compared to the last Audi RS 6 all numbers will go down... except for one (and by the way things are going- another one).

    I am very confident that the US Market will get the green light this time.

    obviously power and torque are not going down. but weight and accel times are. and from what he said--- price may be going down also
    Past- A4, TT, S4

    Present- R8 V10

    I've got this feeling from what you just said that weight is down, acceleration times have gone down and probably power has also gone down though hopefully not by much but I'm guessing the one thing which has gone up is the torque as the old 5.0tt didn't break any records there.

    Well Q how did I do?

    I just think this new RS6 is going to have a hard task beating the new M5 which is a masterpiece. Audi will really need to get everything right here. At least one good thing is it will weight less.

    in the article of autocar about future Macan suv by porsche,about the diesel engine..

    Porsche is also in negotiation with Audi to secure the latter’s new 309bhp twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel, recently launched in the A6, for a possible seventh model: the Macan Diesel Turbo. This engine is due to power a hot SQ5 model from September.
    However, Audi officials, already smarting from having to share the Q5 underpinnings with Porsche, are said to be resisting pressure to share this diesel with the Macan. Contracts have already been signed for it to go into the Panamera and Cayenne.


    Any more info about the new "s diesel" engine vs tri-turbo bmw M550dx? Qisha gave us some preview-info here http://www.rs6.com/showthread.php/23...l=1#post229802

    Is the RS6 sedan confirmed? I read on another forum that because of RS7 there will be no RS6 sedan. Is that true? Hope not.

    I disagree because the A7 is not the same as an A6 saloon. BMW have the M5 and upcoming M6GC, same with MB they have the E63 and CLS63. Audi need the RS6 saloon. A7 is ugly.

    If Audi do an RS6 saloon I bet it will be limited to a select number of market, the ones that traditionally wouldn't buy an estate. Else where in the world the RS Audi is cherished most highly in its estate form so no need for a saloon here.
