You all lost your mind when Mercedes-AMG announced Next-generation C63 with 680hp hybrid powertrain pairing a turbocharged four-cylinder with several electric motors. After all, a four-cylinder engine in something with a 63 badge on it is heresy, right? Don’t worry, friends. Audi promises not to get you so dirty with its future electrified RS products.

Based on a report published by CNET on Wednesday, the company believes that while the electrification of its future Audi Sport products will take place, it will not reduce the engine size to four cylinders. So if for some reason you love the Bluebird-bus-ass turbocharged V6 in current Audi offerings, you have a lot to look forward to.

Constantin Dressler, head of product marketing at Audi Sport, said: “Of course, we will also electrify our cars. “But we won’t do four cylinders.”

The 2.9-liter turbocharged V6 in the recently launched RS 5 Competition makes 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque that, while perfectly reasonable, won’t leave anyone in awe. wonder in the present age of enormous capacity.
