21. Second car. I was given a TL Type S at age 16 that was originally my moms which they oh so kindly gave to me. I know I"m very fortunate and privileged to be making such a decision.

Any news on whether the RS5 has been unveiled yet/
I don't know how the detroit auto show works so any sort of breakdown as to how audi announces it or whenwould be great.
Thanks

The rs5 has been spied fwiw, and you should see it's completely finished and it's being tracked *alot*. ANd has been for 6 months. Would be shocking to see that they didn't have it come. Audi already said the RS5 will come before the RS4 and RS6

The TT-R will be shown before the RS5, in Geneva I think. I need to check up on the RS5 now, my memory aint so good.

The new RS6 is already out.

Checking motortrend's real time coverage, it says AUdi has THREE unveilings. Only 2 have come. Lets see what #3 is. I have a feeling they wanna go out with a bang.

S4 makes sense. Especially judging from the borders of the headlights.

When did Edmunds say this, was it recently (i.e. within the less month)?

This is roughly the same that the dealer told me, the only exception being that he used the name 'TT-RS'. Basing with I have heard and what you are also telling us it sounds very unlikely that Audi would show the RS5 ahead of the TT-RS if the TT is to be launched first, unless the TT-RS won't make it to the States. But even then it still sounds unlikely.

Either the dealers know nothing about the possible engine choice of the RS5 or even they are keeping quiet. I still reckon Audi will surprise us with a high revving V8 but I like everyone here would prefer the FI option.

I've heard that's a possibility too. Beware of Car Magazine though. They told us this was the new M3:



They always make renderings and then try to disguise them as official pics.

Come to think of it, the current RS4 is the sole RS model ever to run a N/A engine, some say it was done to prove that Audi can also produce amazing high revving engine too and to stick two fingers up at BMW's M-Division by producing a V8 before them.

Funny thing is that Audi could have chosen to make the RS6 like the RS4 and give it a N/A engine (the Gallardo was already there) but decided to go back to their roots. Historically RS model have commanded a healthy increase over the S models and on checking the pencentage improvement stays pretty constant so if you look at the difference between the old S4 vs the RS4 and then use to same logic towards the S5 vs RS5 you come at a figure of 430~450hp (approx), that is a small improvement over the RS4 so if Audi stay true to form that improvement is easily achieveable by sticking to the current 4.2FSI without the need for turbos or the likes.

Unless Audi throw us a curve ball and just beef up the current V6 superchanger unit from the S4, better weight, better emissions, better economy and better handling. After all an extra 100hp from a FI engine isn't that big of an ask from the engineers.
