Our spies have again spotted a prototype for the upcoming Audi RS5 doing handling tests on the challenging Nürburgring race circuit in Germany.
Except for the absence of the oval tailpipes –that signature of Audi's RS series would make it way too obvious –the car's front skirt gives the model away.
Although the front end gives it away as an RS5, it remains unclear what powerplant those air intakes lead cooling to.
However, sources indicate that the RS5 will be powered by the same twin-turbo V10 found in the Audi RS6 Avant. In RS6 guise, that powerplant is good for a thunderous 426 kW.
When RS5 debuts, the production model will be sporting wide, oval dual exhaust outlets. There's no word yet on when that will happen, but it looks as though the BMW M6 has been put on notice.
