According to the Dutch paper De Telegraaf, the German automaker Audi will launch the next-gen RS6 in 2012, as a 2013 model, which is sooner than they used to launch the RS versions. If you remember, the new generation of the Audi A6 was launched last December, and it seems that the company wants to roll out the RS6 version quickly in order to compete with the new BMW M5 which will be launched later on this year. Normally, the new RS6 was slated for a 2013 launch, as a 2014MY.

Aside from the BMW M5, Audi will have to face up some serious competition coming from the Mercedes E63 AMG.

Rumors say that the new RS6 will get either a V10 TFSI 5.0-liter engine that produces 572 hp (580 PS / 427 kW) or a more powerful twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter that cranks out 592 hp (600 PS / 441 kW).
