Rendered Speculation: Audi RS8 looks absoluetely insane

Article by Christian A., on July 31, 2014

The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG remains the king of high-performance German sedans, sitting above the Audi S8 or the BMW 760i. Still, RM Design wanted to show us how a possible Audi RS8 would look like and honestly to tell you the photos they released don’t look bad at all.

As you can see, RS8 renderings show a brand new front bumper with larger air intakes and satin blades, an updated front grille wearing the Quattro lettering above the front lip spoiler, new satin mirror covers as well as new side sills.

At the rear, we find the well-known oval tailpipes and a stylish air diffuser. Moreover, the design of the RS8 is completed by the new five-spoke wheels.

We would imagine the RS8 using the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine generating a whooping 560 hp, in order to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds.

Still, we wouldn’t be bothered is we would find the 6.3-liter W12 engine that powers the A8 L, delivering over 500 hp. For those who don’t know, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG uses a 6.0-liter V12 engine that generates 630 hp and a maximum torque of 1,000 Nm.

As a result, the vehicle is capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The Audi RS8 remains just a dream for the moment, as the German carmaker doesn’t have any plans to offer such a vehicle. Maybe they should take a look at these renderings and change their mind!
