Audi RS4 Axed, RS6 to Get Twin-Turbo V8

Arguably one of our favorite cars over the past decade has been the Audi RS4. With 414-hp from a high-revving 4.2-liter V8, the RS4 packed plenty of fun thanks also to its quattro all-wheel drive system and the fact that it was available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission.

An aggressive stance, flared fenders an a simply stunning interior make the RS4 a car that you couldn’t help but lust after.

With limited production between 2006 and 2008, the car’s rarity makes it even that much more desirable.

Sadly, we won’t be looking forward to driving the next RS4, as there won’t be one. According to a report by Car & Driver, Audi has no plans to give the RS4 a successor. This isn’t all that surprising as the RS4 has, historically, skipped generations.

An RS6 is, however, planned, using a twin-turbo V8 engine – which is also rumored to power an upcoming RS7 model and make as much as 600-hp.
