    Audi RS8

    There's the RS4 and the RS6, but where's the RS8 to go up against the S65 AMG?

    Audi is not happy watching how Mercedes Benz's S65 takes all the cake.

    He brings his RS8 to the party.

    6.0L TT W12, tweaked to an impressive 662 bhp and 745 ft.lbs. of torque.

    Same DSG tranny used in the Bugatti Veyron, which without the governor takes this car to 220 mph.

    Unlike the current RS4, the RS8 is more subtle in it's styling, and far more agressive in achieving excellent drivability; focused in breaking the powerful Audi curse.

    Carbon Fiber hood, roof and boot lid.

    Quattro system biased to the rear wheels, but torque is split between front and rear depending on the situation.


    Here it is.





    Edit:

    Here's the rear view

    Is that a compliment or complain?

    But if Mercedes is "hand building" all those AMG engines, BMW has M3, M5, M Coupe and M Roadster; and Audi is making S4, RS4 and powerful diesels, why wouldn't they do the RS8?

    Wasn't the last-gen RS4 built along with the RS6? As there were S4, S6 and S8 models. I believe they were killed because they were going to revamp each car. Now they are coming back.
