    It will surely have a detuned version of the RS6 lump - it's an RS model after all!

    What about the TT behind it? Looks muscular as well?

    There is a rumor that this will get a V10 TDI engine similar to the R8 V10. If it is true, it'll problaly be a detuned version.

    I now for a "FACT" that this paticular "RS5" is sporting a Twin Turbo V8 !

    I cannot imagine they will put a heavy V10 TDI into the RS5. There are different rumours about the motor. The most plausible is the detuned V10 mentioned in this article (see also [1]), or a V8 TFSI (see [2]). Who cares though, I want one no matter which powerplant it has!
