Audi is preparing a strong offensive line in hopes of achieving greatness in the sports car market. In the upcoming months, the company plans to reveal four new sports sedans to complete their all-star team.

The first teammate will be the S8, which will be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall. The S8 will feature a new 4.0 liter, twin-turbo V8 engine developed in cooperation with Bentley. This new engine will deliver a total of 493 HP - an increase of about 50 HP over the current S8 model - but will also have a fuel improvement of about 20%. The engine will be mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and Quattro all-wheel drive system.

About two months after the S8 has its time in the spotlight, Audi will present the S6 and the S7 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The two models will also get the new 4.0 liter V8 engine with an output of 434 HP in the S6 and 464 HP in the S7.

The true all-star on this team, however, will be the RS6. It will also get the 4.0 liter, twin-turbo V8 engine, but with tweaks to increase the power to an impressive 572 HP. The bad news, though, is that Audi will be saving the best for last and we won’t get to see the Audi RS6 until late 2012. The BMW M5 will be able to enjoy its lead in the rankings until then.

One thing that I am really worried about whenever these car makers announce a large roster of models is that a lot of them are eventually dropped from the line up. Hope that doesn’ happen here, since it is very promising.

Well, let’s see what they would be able to introduce for this one. I would agree that they would have a pretty good lineup here, and all of thee are certainly gong to be popular in their own right.

There are lots of details about this S-Series of Audi but still, it looks the same. I wonder what upgrade have they done here?

Wow, they’re definitely churning out a lot of S-Models this time around. But the thing that I would probably be looking forward to is the RS6, since I know that that one would be a heck of a car.

Yeah, even me, I’m excited the future designs and concepts Audi S8,S7, S6 and RS6. If you will see their recent design, you will definitely love the way it made. So, as a car fanatic, I actually looking forward on their newly designs this 2012!.. I think these will hit these 2012!

The good thing about Audi sportscar is that you could actually can used it daily for it offers a better fuel economy cars. And I think the speed performance of this car is not questionable at all.

Is Audi planning to release those car later this year? The updates seems too early..or it will took a long months before they would be done on its production?
