The crown mother of Audi’s sport compacts may have life in the U.S. after all, Car and Driver is reporting.

According to Audi boss Heinz Hollerweger, the RS4 will sport a boosted six-cylinder engine instead of a naturally aspirated eight, and will pack more than 420 horsepower under the hood.

Hollerweger told Car and Driver that the RS4 would likely launch as a wagon in Europe, but if it came stateside that may change — or not. “The U.S. is changing, and there is more demand there (for wagons), so maybe that will change,” Hollerweger said.

Instead of a wagon, the executive also said that the RS4 could live in America as a sportback rather than a sedan much like the S5 Sportback, which is already sold in some European markets.

Hollweger also mentioned the the RS4 could come earlier in the A4’s next-generation life-cycle meaning it could be released alongside the S4, one year after the A4 hits the streets in April 2016.
