It is interesting that Audi now have so many turbo engine configurations - inline 4 turbo, inline 5 turbo, V6 twin turbo and V8 twin turbo.

Only thing missing is inline 5 turbo diesel. Btw, I still have a 1996 inline 5 turbo diesel Audi C4 (first TDI engine ever) with zillion kms on it, and it just won't die :D

The new Audi RS4. Power is 450 PS between 5700 and 6700 rpm. Max torque available between 1900-5000 rpm.
The engine is the same as in the Audi RS5.
Similar to the BMW M5 the previous generation double-clutch gearbox has been replaced with a 8 speed "simple" automatic.
"Simple" (single-clutch) automatics have beem improved so much (far faster gear changing, smarter programing) in the last few years that they begin to replace double-clutch gearboxes. Is it the end for double-clutch gearboxes? Even Audi, one of the first users of the double-clutch gearboxes starts replacing them with traditional automatics. Only Porsche seems to stay with double-clutch. What do you think?

I would have to try the DSG and this latest single clutch myself to form meaningful opinion, but the "double clutch" term has become very powerful marketing term - it basically stands for "best, fastest gearbox possible". I am not sure if it's still a true statement - sometimes manufacturers will cut costs and try to convince you that this will not impact performance in any way. Perhaps the double clutch gearbox was simply too complex and expensive to produce, and Porsche is one of those high dollar brands that can still afford to make them, because they have bigger profit margins overall.

Nah, I believe that people are ditching double clutches cuz they simply are too horrendous to live with.
