Audi continues to work on the development of the new generation of their real wolf in sheep's clothing – the RS6. Our spy photographers recently came across a test unit while driving in broad daylight. The new RS6 range is scheduled for the second semester of 2019.
Once again, the main revealing feature is the sports exhaust system with two oval outlets. A distinctive element of the RS models developed by Audi Sport. On the other hand, the front of this prototype is camouflaged as the Ingolstadt firm has begun testing with the production model which will be dressed with a body kit that will provide a more aggressive and radical appearance, but without reaching extremes. It will feature a new bumper, rear diffuser, rear spoiler as well as larger front air intakes to properly cool the mechanics.
Speaking of the mechanical part, the new RS6 could share the power plant with the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. If so, the new Audi would be a plug-in hybrid and would be able to touch the 700bhp barrier. However, this choice would mean a considerable increase in weight, something that Audi Sport cannot afford. That is why we expect the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that, for example, is used by the Lamborghini Urus.
