    • 2020 C8 Audi RS6 Avant (wagon) likely for US market

      Do not get too excited here. Many sites are reporting the next generation Audi RS6 as confirmed for the US market. That is incorrect. Audi Sport R&D chief Oliver Hoffmann stated in an interview with Car and Driver that odds are good for the RS6 to make it to the USA.


      Possible is not the same as confirmed:

      Audi does intend to bring more wagons/avants to the USA but the statement above is not a confirmation of the RS6 Avant.

      Let's be positive but not get carried away. We can get carried away when there is actual confirmation.

        What does the C8 Engine look like compared to the c7 4.0tt? does it get the MHEV functionality or electric assist turbos?

        I wonder what I'd get for my S8 on trade in for one of these bad boys (probably nothing, lol dealerships)
