RS4

anyone know when a new RS4 will be made available? i was curious if it would be in 2010. i am looking to get a new car, as of right now i want either 2011 550i or M3. but the only thing that might stop me from getting either of those cars would be the release of the RS4.

if not... too bad, Audi will not get my money and BMW will since they do not want to release one of their best cars

Well Audi won't be getting your money then because the RS4 won't be coming in 2010. Though the RS5 will if you can live with the 4 seats and just 2 doors.

The B7 RS4 is great for now since there will be no B8 RS4. You can still supercharge it to keep up with the competition

Yep but way too much $$$ to supercharge it. I'd leave it alone

Hard to say, in the UK the best guesses for it's price is between 56~58K depending on final spec and that spec would include equipment that was optional on the S5. So as a ballpark figure may I suggest adding approximately 25~30% to the price of a US specced S5.

Though chances are it won't be coming stateside, as per usual.

The official line is no RS4 in B8 form, but then Audi also said that there would only be one RS model in production at any one time but when the RS5 starts production later in the year that will be the third RS model along with the TT-RS and RS6, oh and though technically it's not an RS model you could include the R8 which would be four, all at the same time.

What about an RS5 SB, is that technically a new model from the RS5.

I say it's too early to dismiss it's arrival.
