Audi celebrates the 25th anniversary of high-performance RS models.

The first in 1994 was the Audi RS 2 Avant, which was equipped with a 2.2-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine that worked with a six-speed manual gearbox, all-wheel drive system and a self-locking center differential. Power was 315 hp (232 kW).

Audi currently offers seven RS models, including the RS 3 Sportback and Sedan, RS 4 Avant, RS 5 Coupe and Sportback, TT RS Coupe and Roadster. In the near future, the Audi model range will be increased by 6 models, two of which, as the manufacturer confirmed, are “completely new RS versions”.

Probably one of them will be the new RS Q8, which, according to rumors, will receive a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, familiar from Lamborghini Urus. Its capacity will be about 600 hp (441 kW).
