AUDI’S RS6 ROCKET<BR>Audi will bring the sedan version of the new RS6 high-performance sedan to the States, company officials revealed. The new model boasts a 450-horsepower, bi-turbo version of Audi’s 4.2-liter V-8, making it “the most powerful station wagon in the world,” according to spokesman Axel Catton. The package will launch the Avant version from 0-100 km/h (62.5 mph) in just 4.9 seconds, and hit 200 kph in 18 seconds. Despite growing U.S. wagon sales, Audi currently plans to import only the sedan version. The European intro is scheduled for midway through the 2002 calendar year, while the American debut is penciled in on the calendar for sometime in early 2003. <BR> <P> <A HREF="http://www.thecarconnection.com/index.asp?article=4700" TARGET=_blank>http://www.thecarconnection.com/index.asp?article=4700</A> <BR>

Good news, I am sure that is something out of my ball park, hee hee. But I do want them to bring over the S3 though, it sure is one pocket rocket.

With the I5 supposedly fitting in the new Focus/small Volvo chassis, you have to wonder if Volvo won't build a contender for the S3.<P>BTW, I agree. The S3 is a totally cool little car.<P>Spoken by a man who has a chipped Golf 1.8T (about as close as I can get to an S3 in the states).

Oh, the S3! That's the car I'd love to have!<P>Especially with the twin intercoolers from the TT engine so the boost can be pushed higher.
