Audi Is About To Give The Boring Q5 The Badass RS Treatment

Get ready for some really fast grocery runs!

If you live in Europe, the sight of a bad ass Audi RS carwith tons of trunk space is not news to you. Sadly in the United States wehave missed out on cool wagons such as the RS6 and RS4 Avant. Yes we do get theRS7 and RS5, but they don’t offer the same quirkiness and practicality that theEuropean wagon can muster. Rumors havenow emerged that Audi is building an RS version of the boring mom-mobile Q5crossover. The current SQ5 features a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 making 349 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque.

Due to America’s hatred of wagons and complete infatuationwith crossovers, Audi has now decided that the Q5 should be given the RStreatment to compete with the likes of AMG and M. At the moment, there is noX3M or GLC AMG, so the RSQ5 could be without any major rivals. Audi plans to slipin a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine tuned to over 400 hp. Early estimates claimthat this hot mom-mobile will be able to reach 62 mph in less than five secondsand do 155 mph. Expect to see a refreshed Q5 at the 2016 Paris Motor Show withthe insane RS model to follow a year later.
