Audi will launch four new RS models in 2013

Article by Christian A., on December 14, 2012

Audi will launch four new models under its high-performance RS arm in 2013. Very few details have been released but we know that this will include an RS7 and the Q3 RS, which is its first high-performance SUV. These new models were confirmed by Quattro GmbH chief Stephan Reil. According to Autocar, the 2013 lineup will include RS6 and RS5 cabriolet models, as well as the RS7 and Q3 RS.

It’s expected that the RS7 will be displayed next month at the Detroit Auto Show. It will have the same equipment as the RS6, which means that it will be powered by a 552bhp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. It will also have the same top speed as the RS6 Avant of up to 190mph. It’s likely to be available instead of the RS6 saloon version.

The RS4/RS5 models use a similar strategy, in which there is no saloon but only estate and coupé versions. Last April, the Q3 RS was previewed at the Beijing motor show. Reil dropped a hint that a production version will be presented this spring at the Geneva motor show. The concept made use of a variant of the TT RS’s 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine modified to offer 355bhp.
