As we expected, under the bonnet lies a twin-turbo V10 engine. The 5.2-litre unit is expected to push out an absolutely staggering 580HP (around 430kW) and a stellar 650Nm of torque.
The interior pictured features an automatic cog-swapper, so it is a likely that the ZF 6-speed will have the job of taming all this power and sending it through to the wheels.
As with the RS4, the RS6 will use Michelin Pilot Sport treads and will be available with optional carbon ceramic brakes.
Either way - as with the RS4 - CarAdvice will be driving the RS6 once it becomes available in Australia.
