Report: Audi RS6 coming next year with 572-hp 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8

Audi is finally preparing its competitor to the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG – the all-new Audi RS6. First things first, the Audi RS6 will be available as a sedan and an estate (station wagon) and not just an estate like the new RS4, which is probably the most disappointing thing I’ve seen Audi do.

Either way, word on the street is that the Audi RS6 will carry an upgraded version of the 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 from the S6, S7 and S8. Output should come around 572-hp, which is the same as the old V10.

The engine will be mated to a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic and of course an all-wheel-drive system. 0 to 62 mpg will come around 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
