    jarod,

    do you know anything about the weight it will have? i read the CSL will come out in 2010. Will the RS5 compete with it, or is it a competitor with the m3 coupe?
    Still enjoying the 5cilinders of Audi :D

    I exspect that the RS5 will weigh something like the S5.
    Have not heared that Audi is planning to make it a light weigh version to compete with the M3 CSL, that will be 100 Kg lighther then the normal M3 coupe.
    BMW will use a lot of Carbon to do that.

    There are speculations that new RS5 will bi powered by V6 TFSI and personaly I think if they go to forced induction on this one, it;ll be 4.0 TFSI V8......Chasis is designet to adopt V10 and that would be great, but audi is trying to meet emissions regulations and lower them as much as posible......frankly, i'd rather see naturaly aspirated V8 with 450+hp

    The S4 and RS4 will have the 3.0TFSI supercharged engine.
    The present S5 will keep and future RS5 will be V8 engined.
    The new 4.0TFSI supercharged engine will have 395 hp (Future S5, A6, A8, Q7) and 444 hp (RS5).

    Jarod,

    as far as I know future Audi S5 will be equipped with 3.0SC with 333hp approximately. And only then it will be mated with S-Tronic.

    Audi RS5 will be equipped with V8 4.2 with about 450-470hp.

    Facelifted S5 coupe 3,0 TFSI 245 kW (333k) MT6/ S-tronic7 quattro September 2010

    I agree with Jarod on this. I too think Audi will keep the seperation between the S4, RS4 and the S5, RS5. And I too reckon that they will both be running supercharged unit of differing sizes and cylinder numbers.

    Though is they DO decide to give the S4 and S5 the same engine (3.0TFSi) then it would be logical to use the 4.0TFSi for both the RS4 and RS5.
    Search and you will find the truth.

    I could have agreed with you Leadfoot, but I can;t live with the fact that next RS4 will maintain 3.0SC!!
    I am sure that next RS4 and RS5 will maintain very close / similar engines and it will be V8 SC or V8 NA in my opinion. RS is a special produsct unless just S.

    I am pretty sure that after facelift S5 will maintain the same engine as S4.
    Just my 0.02.

    I didn't realise my mistake. I mean if not is.

    i disagree with jarod and leadfoot.

    i predict the RS4 and RS5 will have the same engine. and that the S5 will eventually also run the S4 unit- maybe with a tiny bit more power...

    they are too similar in price and size, they are different versions of each other, and the future will require manufacturers to get as most as possible from one engine in order to maximize its earning potential (witness AMG- their 6.3 V8 is in at least 5 car lines- from the lowly C to the mighty S!)

    the idea that the 5 line is upmarket and begs more cylinders is silly. this coming from the people defending the fact that the RS4 will have a SC 6 cylinder engine (another silly thought). were the 5 line the size of the bmw 6 series that would make sense. but it isn't.

    we will see who is wrong and who is right a year from now.
    Past- A4, TT, S4

    Present- R8 V10

    The opinion of RXBG is similar to mine!
    So let's wait and see but everything is saying about similar V8 engines for RS4 and RS5

    The A4/S4/RS4 and A5/S5/RS5 are not the same kind of car, even not engine wise.
