The M5 isn't "old" tech, it's still a very modern design.

I remember back in the day when the s4 was the m3's rival. Those were the good old days.

I hate when people try that. The RS6 is most definetely an M5 competitor. So what if it has more power, I mean, it would be pointless to being out the RS6 with less performace than the current M5...

About the M3 and RS4, fair enough people compared them at first. But now we have the E90 M3 and RS5 coming. It's gonna be RS4 vs E90 M3 and RS5 vs E92 M3. Speaking of which, I cant WAIT to see the RS5!

I can tell you that the acceleration figures are conservative. Also, topspeed limiter can be removed for a price. It can go a LOT faster! I also have word that the laptime for this car is hugely suprising, the new RS6 is a BEAST! :rocks:

Are any of these pics actual photos? They all look PS to me, albeit some possibly directly from Audi.

They are real. Everyone has announced it. It's on Audi's website, CAR Magazine etc. Even wallpaper websites have wallpapers of it...

I mean, I have no doubt the car is going to be released, exactly as these pics show, but they just aren't real enough to grasp for me, I suppose.

I see, what about the Silver ones? Maybe it's because we are seeing the Avant version first. Dont worry, we'll have real-life pics from Franfurt soon

That's a ballsy move by Audi. I'm excited to see the next gen M5 and M6, if there are going to be any. These horsepower wars are getting ridiculous.
