Spied: Audi RS5 with retractable rear spoiler, could be the modern Ur-quattro? – rpmGo.com

The Audi RS5 is getting closer and closer to debut and spy shots are showing up everywhere. However, the latest ones, taken on the Nurburgring track, are definitely the most interesting ones, because for the first time we see the RS5 being equipped with a retractable rear spoiler, just like the other sports cars in the Audi range, the R8 or the TT.

So what does this mean? Well, we don’t know for sure, but there are a lot of rumors going around about Audi planning to revive the legendary 1985 ‘Ur-Quattro’, one of Audi’s most successful sports cars ever. According to these rumors, the car will weight less than 1,400 kg (3,086 lbs) and, powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0 liters V6 delivering 425 hp, will offer an incredible experience. If all these are true, we should expect the special RS5 to debut in 2012 at a starting price of around 70,000 Euros ($91,000).
