DETROIT -- Audi used its Monday news conference at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show to reveal to the world its most powerful car. And it has four doors. The company showed off the all-new RS7 four-door coupe. Based on the striking A7, this hyper-fast version grabs its 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 from the S8 sedan. Horsepower jumps to 560, torque is 516 and power flows to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Audi says the RS7 sheds about 55 pounds versus the S7. It will do 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 190 miles per hour.

When the horses break out of the gate for the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Park this weekend, online wagering company Youbet.com Inc. will have a big bet of its own riding on the races today and Saturday.

That would help the company continue to emerge from a losing streak that included annual losses for three of the last four years, the costly acquisition of two gaming-related companies, a federal investigation and nearly getting delisted by the Nasdaq stock market.
