Only existing orders for V8 saloon will be fulfilled; V10 RS6 on the way
15 June 2007

Audi clearly thinks you can have too much of a good thing: the sensational RS4 saloon is heading out of production, according to Audi UK.The 414bhp V8-powered RS4 was unveiled at the Geneva motor show in 2005, and went on sale in the UK in October of that year; it'll stop being built this October.It has been a big success for Audi – not least with us here at Autocar, who have fallen for its supercar pace and agility.The saloon was joined in summer 2006 by the RS4 Avant and cabriolet, both of which will remain in production.Though Audi hasn't admitted as much, RS4 production is being phased out to make way for the forthcoming new RS6.The RS6 is already in advanced testing. It's believed to use a turbocharged 5.0-litre V10, and is expected to be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show in September.Audi has said that it will now only build RS4 saloons for UK customers who have already placed orders, but that it is not taking new orders for the saloon.
