Next week, the 90th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb will finally kick off after a delay due to the wild fires in Colorado. Audi apparently has a surprise up its sleeve for this year’s event, teasing an RS5 on its Facebook page.

We already know that Walter Rohl will return to the Hill this year behind the wheel the original Sport quattro S1. For those who need a quick history lesson, Rohl conquered Pikes Peak 25 years ago and set a record that still stands today, back when the course was still a dirt road. Though he won’t be in actual competition this year, it’ll be interesting to see what Rohl can do now that the course has been paved.

We’ll just have to wait another week to see what Audi’s plans are for this RS5 that’s being teased.
