Will Audi reveal a RS6 Avant prototype?

The Avant RS6 was always there for you offering supercar levels of performance in an estate package, just like the BMW M5. Previously it was powered by a 5.0-liter bi-turbocharged V10 engine that was capable of producing 580 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. The new generation A6 Avant was introduced last year and we all thought this would mean the RS6 will come back to life. Recently a new model was spied during some tests taken in Sweden. We don't really know if this is a RS6 Avant prototype, but there are a lot of clues that indicate it. So, till know, Audi has managed to present all versions of the A6 Avant, plus it has the flared wheel arches that are a signature trait of the RS series. The front bumper was modified and it features very big brake discs. For sure the production version will have a special aerodynamic kit, an RS front grille and also, it will run on different alloys. Rumors say that the new RS6 in both Avant and sedan versions will use the 4.0-liter TSI model that powers the S6 and the S7 and that delivers 420 horsepower and that also is the heart of the S8 delivering 520 horsepower. There is also the possibility to be equipped with a V10 engine, but what is sure is that the power will be sent to all four wheels using the Audi's Quattro system. The model will have its debut sometime next year. Source: carscoopblogspot
