If your a car guy/girl.....These arent sleepers lol

To your normal everyday person, im sure they would find the slightly more aggresive looks and sound to be more of a hint as to whats really goin on, But for the most part....Yup

Plus ive always felt weird about Bmw and Audi using V10s in these cars, They sound good and were great cars, Id take the RS6 no problem, But V10s didnt fit them to me, However though, I do think the 6 Series should all have V10s though, They seemed more at home there.

Stolen Lamborghini engine

Audi engineers raiding Lamborghini factory at night, snatching up Gallardo V10s, while VW group secretary in charge of inventory is cooking the books to make sure nobody will notice...

Sounds legit :D

I'm not sure why anyone is complaining about a V10 engine AND 2 turbos on a sleeper car.

RS6? Stolen lambourghini gallardo engine with 2 power ups...don't make me laugh...BMW, naturally aspirated, 100+BHP per litre without any cheatmodes (sorry cough turbos)...

Audi stopped making RS6 in 2004 after realising they could not compare to buy out a ready made super car that already does 500BHP (gallardo) and slap 2 power ups on it...WOW!!! "AUDI" rs6!!!

Nothing wrong with how E60 looks. It looks more modern than current generation. Much the same as previous gen Toyota Landcruiser.

I do not have to accept it ... If the car is 4wd logically it will be heaviera and will have better grip but never doubt engineered by BMW. Bimmer If you want to show their full potential in the new M5 is good you take it

@M Power
but you don\'t say nothing about 200 kg extra fort the rs6.
The extra power is needed for the rs6 for the extra weight as you can see in the power /weight ration.
even with the 200 kg extra weight, the rs6 handles better than the m5 so is not only the power wich counts.
the rs6 is way a better car and you have to accept that.

@ Audi who are you kidding with a comment at BMW fanboys when you use the name Audi..... You are obviously an Audi fanboy/girl but also totally correct in this case as the RS6 does have better results than the M5.
