They also look very current gen A6ish underneath the tape?

Regardless, looks understated and all business... just the way a 570hp+ Audi should

You could ask that about E9x's as well. Maybe manufacturers let owners lower the car if they want or leave it alone?

The car looks great, but still feels a little bland.

I wanted to see it around the topgear track! I hate these daft tests (car vs man). I was interested in how the RS6 handled on tough roads and it certainly made it look effortless!

Love the taillights in comparison to the current A6. I think the grille's a little too narrow, but they can't do much about that anyways. The brakeducts look mean. Awesome.

Not crazy about the wheels. Never was, even on the Avant.

If it was RWD I'd take it over an M5 no question (or an E63 for that matter). Nonetheless, I still find it hard to like the M5 as much as this, despite the lack of RWD.

well, we don't know too much yet. i guess we'll have to wait for numbers. i'm also curious about what the next m5 is going to look like.
