Details are scarce, but what you're looking at is the 2012 Audi RS4 Avant, the ultimate V8-powered Euro-only wagon that Audi refuses to offer the good people in the U.S. of A.

Powered by the same 4.2-liter V8 fitted to the RS5, output is up around 450 horsepower with 320 pound-feet of torque, allowing the all-wheel-drive super sled to hit 60 mph in around 4.5 seconds and top out at 175 mph.

A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is likely standard as is the Dynamic Ride Control suspension and a ride height that's been dropped around two inches.

We're hoping to know more before the Avant's official unveiling in Geneva, but in the meantime, check out the factor fresh batch of images in the gallery above.2012 Audi RS4 Avant leaks out originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 14 Feb 2012 14:30:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

would never work in the US. people wont even buy the cts-v wagon here, think they'd buy an rs4 wagon?
There are less CTS-V wagons than ZR-1's out there. It's not that people won't buy it, it's that those who buy it are part of a niche market that keeps itself deliberately slim. GM intentionally builds a low amount of the wagons. They're essentially special order.
