Audi's M6-hunter at the 'Ring

2009-04-20 08:45
A prototype of the upcoming Audi RS5 has again been spotted, this time blitzing around the Nürburgring doing handling tests.

While there aren’t too many visual clues indicating this is the RS5 - the oval tailpipes would be too obvious - this prototype's beefed-up front skirt does provide a very important piece of the puzzle. The production model will feature the signature RS twin oval tailpipes, though.

It also remains unclear just what sort of firepower the super coupe will pack.

However, it has been suggested that it will be powered by the same 426-kW bi-turbo V10 that was recently made available in South Africa in the RS6 sedan.

There is no word yet on when the RS5 will debut.
