I think Europe can expect it spring/summer next year, Audi are renowned for setting a date and that date coming and going. It very hard to read what type of car the RS5 will be, if you look at the S5 then it will be old school Audi which is competent and quick but less involving or exciting to drive than an M3, but if you look at the R8 and to a lesser extent the S4 than it might possibly just give the M3 a run for it's money on pure excitement.
There is little doubt that the M3 was there benchmark and only time will tell if they have succeeded in knocking it off the top.
