The official details for the newAudi A6 aren’t even cold yet and already we are hearing ripples of rumors about different versions of the luxury sedan. It’s only natural that the company will follow the A6 with an S and RS (Renn Sport) version for it, so these rumors are more fact than fiction. However, while the RS version won’t be unveiled until about another two years, many people are too geeked up about it to wait that long, and this fresh rendering is proof of that.

Besides receiving an impressive exterior update inspired by the latest A7 Sportback and an even sportier interior with higher quality materials, the Audi RS6 sports sedan will also be built on the new MLP platform (structured to provide better weight distribution) that will help reduce the total weight by aprox. 220 lbs.

Also, the new RS6 will drop the current V10 engine in favor of a new twin turbo 4-liter V8 engine that will deliver the same performance numbers as the engine it replaces.

UPDATE 02/15/2011: Ask and you shall receive. Since people already began speculating about the RS6 anyway, an Audi spokesman has provided a couple of details for the vehicle. In an interview with Telegraaf.nl, the spokesman said that the United States is a typical sedan country for which the RS6 is intended, eliminating the question of whether or not the RS6 will make it to our side of the pond. The Audi spokesman also said that the RS6 will feature lots of carbon fiber components in order to reduce the car’s weight by as much as possible.

UPDATE 03/28/2011: Today’s rumors suggest that the Audi RS6 will go on sale one year earlier than expected. This decision has been made in an attempt to attack the future BMW M5 set to be released in just a few months time.
