Wiseful thinking, it ain't a GTR rival in performance terms. But I think it has it beat in the agressive looks department.

Nice.

So the pic of the speedometer with 8000 +rpm redline confirms that it is a carryover of the RS4 engine with some upgrades!
I don't think it can be a V10(never did).
And forced induction would have had a lower redline rating.
Hmm, one thing I'm sure about is that, who ever owns this car will have a sweet sounding V8. I just love the noise made by this engine.

I think we need about 6 more threads on the RS5.

The ride will be less jaring for sure. The interior is leaps and bounds ahead. The Audi will hold it's own but the Nissan will win in the hard numbers department.

Give it a few months after release for the tuners to de-code and let's talk again.

The 'ring is going to be a very scary place... can you imagine Sabine in the next M3/M5 tearing after this RS monster, GT-Rs, and lord knows what Porsche will do?

^ I read the Panamera coupe is a go. TT and PDK.

A writer from Motor Authority said this yesterday regarding the Audi.

The new RS5 is scheduled to go on sale in Europe this July and previous spy shots of prototypes testing in the U.S. suggest the car could be in local showrooms by the end of the year.

I find the front grille utterly repulsive. The seats are quite lovely.

Yeah, probably a wise move. After all VW already have other cars in it's line up to compete with GTR, namely the R8v10 and 997.2tt. On this occasion VW have the M3 firmly in it's cross-hairs.

In any case why is people concerned about their beloved M3, it's following will mostly stay loyal because it's rwd and will drive and behave differently to that of the RS5. I just think it's great to have another car of the market place of the caliber of the M3.

VW and Porsche's lineup of supercars and GTs is unmatched. The RS 5 is a small addition to an already exceptional growing list: R8 V10, 997.2 Turbo, LP670-4 SV, LP570-4 Superleggera, etc.

I never buy the first or second year of a car. That's when it's going to have the most problems. My cars are always the 3rd year and beyond.

^ A staff writer for Motor Authority posted it Saturday.

Who the hell knows at this point. I have read yes, no and maybe it will come to the states.
