Audi Q5 Custom Concept - Click above for high-res image gallery
Once upon a time the in-house performance studios of Germany's finest automakers wouldn't have anything to do with crossovers and SUVs. But several Mercedes-Benz G55 AMGs
and BMW X6 Ms
's quattro GmbH is reportedly looking to join the fold with a pair of super-tuned Q5s
The reports claim that Audi is preparing an SQ5 and an RSQ5, both backed by versions of the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 found in the latest S4
sedan, offering 333 horsepower in the SQ5 and as much as 408 in the RSQ5. Along with the engine upgrades, we could expect commensurate chassis, brakes and appearance enhancements as well.
For better or worse, these appear to be simple rumors at the time, but we'll be keeping our eyes open for more info, so stay tuned.
