Report: Audi will not produce RS versions of the Q5 and Q7

Article by Christian A., on October 19, 2010

Although we’d like to see the RS versions of the Audi Q5 and Q7, it appears that the German manufacturer doesn’t intend to create these models in order to compete with cars such as the Bmw X5 & X6 M or the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG. These words came from Stephan Reil, chief of Audi's division known as quattro GmbH.

This means that cars such as the Audi Q5 Custom Concept, which previews the RS version of the Q5 crossover will not be produced.

For those who don’t know, the Q5 Custom Concept made its debut last year, at the Wörthersee Tour 2009 and was powered by a 3.0-liter TFSI V6 engine (found also on the Audi S4) delivering an impressive 408 hp. The car could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds while the top speed was electronically limited to 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The car was unveiled wearing a Daytona Gray custom finish and matt rolls on 2011-inch wheels of 7 twin-spoke design. Furthermore, the Q5 Custom Concept was lowered by 60 millimeters to improve the handling.

Regarding the RS version of the Q7, Audi didn’t reveal any concept to preview the car, but we’d love to see a sporty version of the car with an aggressive bodykit and powered by the impressive 6.0-liter V12 diesel engine delivering 500 hp.
