For many years there have been rumors about the possible appearance of a “charged” version of the Audi Q5 with the RS prefix, but an Audi spokesman said that such a car was not planned for the near future.

Thus, during a recent interview with the foreign agency Autocar, Michaela Benz, product manager of the Q5 family, said that Audi does not plan to release a “charged” version of the Q5 in the near future. It should be said that she did not completely exclude the possibility of a “hot” variation of the cross coming out sometime in the future.

Benz’s words agree with the recent statement of another representative of the German corporation, who also said that the RS Q5 should not be expected soon, at the same time, in particular, he admitted the possibility that a “charged” variation of the cross will be released in the future.

But let’s assume that the RS Q5 would be out soon, then it could borrow the engine from the standard model or get a 2.9-liter twin-turbo engine with 444 hp. (600 Nm). Along with this, due to tightening environmental standards in Europe, the model could be electrified.

In addition, it was recently noted that the German company Audi showed a prototype RS E-Tron GT. It should be emphasized that this car can be equipped with three electric motors with a total capacity of 700 hp.
