In May 2012, Audi trademarked the “RS8” nameplate , confirming that the Audi A8 will indeed get a more powerful version. Still, until now our spy photographers have yet to catch this car testing, so it is time to start speculating a little bit about this future sports luxury sedan.
The trademark was not the only confirmation coming from Audi about its plans to expand the RS lineup. At the beginning of this year Audi confirmed that in the upcoming months, we are going to see more RS models launched onto the market with the RS7 being the first one and the Q3 RS to follow.
The question racing through everyone’s mind is how powerful does Audi want to make the RS8, considering the new S8 already received an amazing 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine with an output of 520 horsepower.
