The BMW M6 has got some hefty competition coming its way. Checkout these recently released amazing spy photos of a prototype Audi RS5 undergoing testing at the Nurburgring. While the Audi S5 really just an Audi A5 on steroids, the RS5 is the S5 on steroids.

The RS5 will debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September this year. We are pretty sure though that it will go on sale in 2010 in Europe. Stay tuned to Carzi for regular updates. We know that you will.

Look under that matte black masking and you can notice the blue RS5 with those flared wheel arches, which confirms its widened track. Also new are the chunkier rear bumpers and twin oval exhausts to spit out the fury of the warhead under the bonnet. The air intakes are bigger and menacing as well. The horizontal and vertical slats on the radiator grille remind you that this is an Audi flagship model of performance.

With the M6’s 500bhp to beat, engineers at Audi just need to pick the engine of their choice from the Audi arsenal. Power is most likely to come from the twin Turbocharged 5.2 liter V-10 that does duty in the RS6 and this could make 580 bhp if used in the same state of tune. With Audi announcing that they would drop their big bore engines for smaller ones with forced induction, a Turbocharged version of the 4.2 liter V8 from the R8/RS4 with a minimum of 500 bhp is expected if it has to take the challenge to BMW.

The prototype sports aftermarket Recaro seats which are a bit expensive but this could hint at the possibility of Audi moving toward light weight sports seats for the production version. Those humongous 20-inch wheels on the prototype are a direct lift from the RS6 and that’s not bad at all because just look at them. They would do a tuner proud!

Now, we’re not even sure yet if the RS5 will be making over to our shores, but we’re hoping the 2011 (or 2010) RS5 will be unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
