    Guys,

    I have always wondered, why do audi use S as their near top range for their cars?

    What does it mean?

    Then....what does "RS" stand for?

    And while we are on the subject....what about "M" and "AMG" ?

    Ideas?

    Thanks

    RS = RennSport (German) = Motorsport

    S = Sport?

    M = Motorsport?

    AMG = Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach

    There you go!

    So the S is just a boring "sport"?

    I was expecting something like shizer or schishokab or the likes :S

    Are we throwing out random German words beginning with S? If so you might like this one: Schlampe!

    In Ford terms, RS = Rally Sport.
    But as Wai-Fan says, in others (Porsche) it's Renn Sport.

    Nowadays it's just a badge for a range topping sporty model, with little or no actual rellying/racing links...except Porsche who keep RS sacred and hardcore.

    Ford have sold out from what RS used to mean back in the 70s...
    Audi use it as the top model - nothing at all to do with racing or rallying.
