Audi RS6 – 571 HP

audi-rs6 The specs have been leaked, and they’re ridiculous.  The upcoming Audi RS6 supersedan will be sporting an absolutely ridiculous 571 horsepower.  That power will come from a twin turbocharged 5.0 liter V10, according to some handy-dandy deciphering of the vehicle chassis codes.  Apparently the engine will also make 1000 NM of torque, though I have no idea what that translates into for the ft-lbs that we use here in the states.

Putting all this power to the ground is the dynamic due of a six speed ZF auto gearbox and Quattro AWD.  There *may* be a DSG transmission available down the road, though that’s not certain just yet.  There’s even talk of a RS6 “Plus” that may put down horsepower in the 625 range.  Sick, just sick. 

The Audi R8 was the king of the Audi world, but no more.  Bring on the RS6.
