Audi RS4 Avant B8 Spyshots at the Nurburgring

As a previous B5 RS4 owner I was left somewhat disappointed with the removal of the trademark forced induction from the 420ps B7 RS4, Now the 2013 Audi RS4 has shown its in production prototype on Germany’s Nürburgring.

The B8 Audi RS4 is incorporating a much more aggressive front fascia complete with lower and wider air intakes similar to the RS5 Coupe.

Rumors have suggested that an all-new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 could be put to use here and with the extensive competition from AMG and BMW M-Power it is looking likely.

Wiesmann MF5 GT Replacement Spotted Spyshots

After we fetched you the news back in July that BMW was ceasing production of the M5 and its formula 1 inspired engine, it left us wondering about the Wiesmann GT MF5.

But fear not the German roadster manufacturer has turned up today with a prototype to test the BMW V8 Twin Turbo as used in the X6 and the X5 M powered cars, and of course the upcoming M5/M6 in 2011.

The car was sporting larger wider wheels than its predecessor 325x25x20 on the rear and 285x30x20 on the fronts and was currently fitted with Michelin Pilot Sports.

The manufacturing process hasn’t changed from the previous model but we expect it to way slightly less than the current model due to the new engine.

Expect a saving of about 100kg making it weigh in at an estimated 1295kg and this should enable the car to exceed 200mph.
