One of the biggest M3’s competitor, the Audi RS5 (until now only saw in the spy shots) has been officially confirmed for an world debut at the Detroit Auto Show next January. And a bad news for the US market: the second-generation RS6 will not be sold in here. Need more proof that Europe gets all the good cars?
Shortly after the world premiere of the RS5 in Detroit in January 2009, Audi expects to introduce the new RS4.
In 2012 Audi will unveil the third generation RS6. This indeed will be sold on the US market and will be powered by a 5.0-liter V10 engine. RS6 project manager Jens Koch called the third-generation model "revolutionary" and said it will be "far more RennSport than anything previously developed."
