OK the "inside" information over at is base price = 650,000kr (Sweden). Audi RS4 is 731,000kr. RS4 base USD is $66k. 650/731 * $66k = drumroll .... $58.6k. Right where most of us are predicting! Again even I will say without tooting my own horn, it ain't over until the fat lady sings, but this new information, along with the historical BMW price information, points to a base price of < $60k. For the hundredth time I don't want to argue about a well optioned price but it is almost for sure not going to cost even $70k (let alone mid 70s) with some options AND out the door with tax!
