The next generation of the Audi RS6 is expected to be officially presented to the public in a world premiere next year, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The German based automaker Audi may keep the future generation of the RS6 into the shadows for the moment but the guys at autocar.co.uk are saying that the powerful vehicle will use a new twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8, from the S6, S7 and S8. According to our source, the new generation of the Audi RS6 has been caught testing on the Nurburgring and the model will outpunch the BMW M5 with its 552 BHP sent to the Quattro all-wheel drive system.

The future generation of the Audi RS6 will also use aluminum and carbon fiber in order to reduce the weight by up to 100 kg when compared to its predecessor and rumors are saying that, besides the impressive output which will place its competitors from BMW and Mercedes-Benz way behind, the model should use an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission or the new seven-speed dual clutch automatic. Rumors are saying that the next-gen Audi RS6 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in under 4.5 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
