Default Audi RS6 ready for 2012? [video rendering]

Dutch paper De Telegraaf is reporting that Audi is readying the next-generation RS6 for a 2012 debut (as a 2013 model), well ahead of the usual schedule for the introduction of RS variants.
The new generation 2012 Audi A6 was introduced just last December but, according to the report, Audi wants to bring the RS6 to market quickly to compete against the new M5 expected later this year. The next Audi RS6 was commonly expected to come in 2013 as a 2014 model.
Of course, also on the radar is Mercedes-Benz's E63 AMG, and Audi will have to supply the right amount of horses to match those two reigning models.
Speculation has it that the next RS6 will feature either a 580 PS (427 kW / 572 bhp) 5.0-liter TFSI V10 unit or a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 tuned to around the 600 PS (441 kW / 592 bhp) mark, same as the alleged RS7
The next F10 M5 is expected to be sporting a power rating in that neighborhood too.
But we won't have to wait long to find out

The rendering looks pretty neat and the car looks great too. Better than i expected. They need to lose those wheels though. This could boost up their sales but I still dont believe it would affect the M5 market, if anything, it could affect the E amg's market. I have a feeling that Audi might drop the V10 for the twin turbo. Lets see how it goes..

The plate is getting hotter.
