Also in the past Audi RS was more involved in hp-wars with AMG than the M-GmbH ... so I donīt think they wouldnīt give the RS4/5 an snaller engine than AMG would put into its C55(?)/63.
It is not a new V6 for the RS4/RS5 only. This V6 powers the fecelifted Panamera S, will power the facelifted Cayenne S and will power the Macan S so as the Pajun S. This engine will find its way to the new high-class VWs and quite surely the RS4, RS5 and entry level R8.

S3/TT-S/R4:.................2.0l I4 ~300 PS
RS3/TT-RS/R4:.............2.4l I5 ~350-400 PS
S4/S5:.........................3.0l V6 ~350-400 PS
RS4/RS5:.....................3.0l V6 ~450-500 PS
S6/S7:.........................4.0l V8 ~450-500 PS
RS6/RS7:.....................4.0l V8 ~550-600 PS
R8:.............................3.0l V6 ~450 PS & 4.0l V8 ~600 PS
Gallardo II:..................4.0l V8 ~600-650 PS

4.0l V8 also for Bentley. W12 is exclusive.


Mercedes engine in future look other wise:
1.5l I3 (Mercedes)
2.0l I4 (Mercedes & AMG)
3.0l I6 (Mercedes)
4.0l V8 (Mercedes & AMG up to 700 PS)
6.0l V12 (Exclsuive Mercedes & AMG also for Pagani)

A sure bet is that all M engine will be based on AG engines. Yet it, depends on what will power M2 (I4 or I6) and M4 (I6 or V6) and which. However this is certain:
1.5l I3
1.6l I4 (BMW-PSA) (not sure for how long and if it will be completely replaced by I3)
2.0l I4
3.0l I6
4.0l V8 (will replace current 4.4l V8, could come with next generation X6 or new X7).
6.0l V12 (BMW exclusive, M version not impossible)
6.6l V12 (Rolls Royce Exclusive)
V16 (Rolls Royce Exclusive, yet to be confirmed in next Phantom).

In the next 2 years new turbocharged I4, V6 and V8 engines should be powering Lexus cars. Next generation IS-F/RC-F engine is yet unknown, either FI V6 or NA V8.
