Rumors coming from Britain indicate that instead of the “hurry up and wait a couple years” strategy that usually surrounds RS models, Audi’s ‘quattro’ division will be releasing its RS7 side-by-side with the standard A7.

Power is said to be sourced from a non-turbo version of Audi’s 5.2 liter V10 putting out as much as 580-horsepower and hooked to a 7-Speed DSG transmission.

With the RS7 Sportback, Audi is looking to have a direct competitor for the upcoming CLS63 (and possibly BMW’s Gran Coupe-based 8-Series) in its stable.

The only issue here is that quattro builds one model at a time; with the RS5 having just debuted, this RS7 making an appearance may just be a bunch of hopes and dreams. Regardless, there’s no doubt that it WILL happen. One day.

So, now that everyone is starting to play in the high-performance four-door coupe sandbox, let the nicely-tailored form-over-function wars begin!
