Audi has confirmed that two more high-performance models will join the recently revealed RS6 and RS5 convertible models in 2013: the RS7 and Q3 RS.

Rumor has it that the RS7 could make its debut at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show, boasting the same powerplant found in the recently announced RS6 Avant. That means a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 will power the RS7 packing at least 552 hp under the hood. The German automaker intends to offer the RS7 model as a substitute to an RS6 sedan, a similar strategy that it uses on its RS4 and RS5 vehicles.

As for the Q3 RS, it’ll be Audi’s first high-performance SUV and was originally shown off in concept form at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. In concept form, the Q3 RS was powered by the 2.5-liter, five-cylinder engine found in the TT RS which puts out 355 hp.
