Audi revealed photos of its zaftig RS 6 Avant to the press on Wednesday as a teaser to the official reveal at the Frankfurt auto show next week.

The car will have a 5.2 liter V10 engine with FSI direct injection and twin turbochargers capable of 580 horsepower. (That's a lot of power.) The car can go from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds.

"It is the most powerful model in the current Audi range...with the exception of pure racing cars like the Le Mans-winning Audi R10 TDI," Audi said in a statement.

It should be available for purchase in mid-2008. This follows Audi's release of info on its A4 with bling LED daylights last week, which will also debut at Frankfurt.
