So far Audi’s product launch schedule for 5-years that was leaked during December of last year has been pretty much on par. Now the folks at Audiblog.nl have leaked even a more detailed document that gives us an idea of what we can expect under the hood of the upcoming models.
The spreadsheet document was supposedly acquired from Audi Poland and is said to be from a reliable source. So take it for what its worth.
First, the most anticipated Audi model, the A1, will get a 1.4 liter TFSI and an entry level 1.2 liter TFSI that produces 86-hp when it arrives on the market later next year.
The Audi S4 will get a 3.0 liter V6 bi-turbo TFSI engine that produces 333-hp. As reported earlier the 4.2 liter V8 will be dropped in order to boost fuel-efficiency. The car will be available in avant and sedan form and will be mated to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch. The 2010 Audi S4 will make its debut later this year.
The upcoming Audi S5 will keep the 4.2 liter V8 for now but will get the 3.0 liter bi-turbo V6 from the S4 in September 2010. Horsepower will be reduced from 354 to 333.
Our favorite, the Audi RS5, will be seen early next year and will carry the same 4.2 liter V8 from the S5. However, horsepower will be increased from 354 to 450. The engine will be mated to the 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission.
Audi will also reveal an A5 and S5 Sportback later next year. The A5 Sportback will get a wide range of engine choices including a 1.8 TFSI unit, a 3.2FSI and a 2.0 TDI and 3.0 TDI for you diesel lovers. The S5 Sportback will get the 3.0 liter bi-turbo V6.
Oddly enough Audi will also introduce the upcoming A7 in a Sportback variant as well. The German automaker has already confirmed a coupe and cabriolet version. The A7 Sportback will get a 3.0 TDI mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission. There will also be an S7 Sport back around November 2010 that will receive an all new 4.0 liter TFSI that produces 394-hp.
Audi will refresh the A8 in 2012 with the same V8 engines. However a new 8-speed automatic transmission will be added.
Finally Audi’s R8 will see a convertible variant. The R8 Spyder will get the same engine as the current R8 coupe. However, both models will also see a 5.2 liter V10 that produces 525-hp. Both models will arrive on the market in June 2009 and March 2010 respectively.
