Powered by the same 4.2-liter V8 fitted to the RS5, output is up around 450 horsepower with 320 pound-feet of torque, allowing the all-wheel-drive super sled to hit 60 mph in around 4.5 seconds and top out at 175 mph.
A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is likely standard as is the Dynamic Ride Control suspension and a ride height that’s been dropped around two inches.
We’re hoping to know more before the Avant’s official unveiling in Geneva, but in the meantime, check out the factory fresh batch of images in the gallery above.
UPDATE: Official release after the jump and new pics added to the gallery.
