Among the few station wagon models that have captured the imagination of gearheads is the Audi RS6 Avant series, especially in its most recent iteration built from 2006 to 2010 that used a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V10 engine related to the naturally-aspirated V10 found in the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Gallardo supercars.
Our spies have taken pictures and even filmed prototypes of the new model racing around the Nürburgring, but photoshop expert Khalil Bouguerra put his skills to work to create a set of renderings previewing the production version.
The proposed styling changes over the S6 Avant include the flared wheel arches housing larger rims, mesh fillings for the grille and lower air vents on the restyled front bumper, side skirts, and a new rear bumper with a diffuser and oval exhausts on either side.
Rumor has it that Audi will replace the older model's 571hp (579PS) 5.0-liter bi-turbo V10 with a tweaked version of the new 4.0-liter TSI that powers Audi's S6 and S7 (420HP) as well as the S8 (520HP) and the Bentley Continental models (500HP).
A Paris Motor Show debut for the RS6 Avant is a possibility, in which case sales will start next spring.
