No dual clutch transmission like in the S6? Bummer. Another downer is that we will not be getting an RS6 sedan. It's RS7 only for the North American market folks. Those that wanted this power and the RS handling and looks in the A6 will not be getting their wish. Bittersweet.
The RS7 itself though is a very nice design and if the Audi S8 is any indication the performance will be exemplary. Expect mid to 11's in the 1/4 mile with trap speeds in the 123 mile per hour range.
With the new RS7 coming to play as well as the facelifted E63 AMG and CLS63 AMG BMW's time in the sun with the F10 M5 appears to be over very quickly. Should be an epic battle between the M6, RS7, E/CLS63 AMG, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo for supremacy.
