Audi Sport is looking to double its range of RS performance models by 2018, according to the division’s new boss, Stephan Winkelmann.
Currently, the RS range includes versions of the A3, Q3, TT, A6 and A7 and the next 18 months could see additional ranges across the A1, A4 and Q5, as well as a more defined R8.
RS models all combine aspects of supercar performance with everyday practicality for those that dream of the thrill of the track being integrated into their every-day drive.
Broadening the RS selection is expected to appeal to a wider audience while providing greater choice across the Audi range.
Audi Sport chief executive Stephan Winkelmann has revealed that Audi's fleet of RS-badged models will evolve to compete against AMG, however, the brand will go in a different direction to its rival.
Born in 1994, Audi’s high performance sub-brand RS – standing for RennSport, literally translating to ‘racing sport’ – has enhanced its technology and performance to become more than a match for rivals.
As part of a business restructure, Quattro, RS, Audi Exclusive and the customer car division of Audi Sport are being merged into one organisation.
