According to a recent report, Audi will introduce two high performance versions of the Q5 crossover.

While details are limited, L'Automobile is reporting the SQ5 will be launched in 2011. It will likely feature minor styling tweaks inclu ding revised fascias, a bright grille, and a four-tailpipe exhaust system. Like the S4, the SQ5 would be powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 333 PS (245 kW / 329 bhp) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque.

If that doesn't peak your interest, perhaps the RSQ5 will do the trick. Inspired by the Q5 Custom Concept, the RSQ5 reportedly features a modified version of the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 408 hp (304 kW / 414 PS).

While these are interesting possibilities, neither model has been officially confirmed by Audi.
