Fourtitude revealed the first official information about the future RS4 and RS5. It seems the car will feature the same V8 engine. Power will come from a 4.0 TFSI turbocharged engine, same that will be used for the next-generation A8. This means the output will be around 470 hp.
The engine will be mated to Audi’s latest 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission (a.k.a. DSG). The new RS cars will also benefit from Audi Drive Select (ADS) - controlling suspension, steering weight and ratio, throttle mapping, and shift points on S-tronic models.
Considering that spy shots of the RS4 have been circulating on the internet for a long time now, we presume the car is about its debut. Unlike the RS5, which there have been no spy images.
