If the Porsche-developed 4.0 litre V8 is selected for the new RS6, this car will be the firstr Audi since the RS2 Avant from 1994 to be Porsche-powered.

The V8 currently develops 542 bhp in its most powerful state of tune, but that’s expected to rise well beyond the 552 bhp of the current RS6 if Audi tunes it.
