2013 Audi S6

Audi’s next launch in the Indian market is the S6 in late July. The Audi S6 has allured a lot of luxury sedan enthusiasts as it will be the second as well as the most powerful sedan bashed with the Audi’s S badge in India. The S6 is the performance version of the A6 and shares the same platform with it. At the same time, the exteriors of the S6 look quite civilized in the same manner as the A6.

However the little tweaks the company has done over the exterior like S-specific single frame grille, 19-inch alloy wheels with black brake calipers, aluminium-optic mirror housing, quad exhaust at the rear with the integrated spoiler and the exciting ‘S’ badge on the boot makes a real sense to judge the brisk personality of the car. The air suspension with the several dedicated modes for different road conditions never take the feeling away of sitting on a flying couch. The major replacement in the S6 is under the hood.

The Audi S6 is powered by a restless spirit 4.0-litre V8, TFSI twin-turbocharged petrol engine. This V8 monster generates a peak power of 420 PS and an impressive torque of 550 Nm which starts building-up only at 1400 RPM and goes all the way to 5200 RPM. The power is transferred to the Audi Quattro all-wheel drive system through the S tronic, 7-speed automatic transmission, that shifts cogs within a fraction of second.

The sum-up of all the flawless engineering make the Audi S6 capable of doing the 0-100 km/hr sprint in just 4.8 seconds! Some additional features seen on the S6 for passenger comfort and safety include advance keyless entry system, complete xenon plus headlights with daytime running LEDs, 8 airbags including two at the knee level and an 8-inch MMI navigation plus system. The Audi S6 will come to our shores as a CBU (complete built unit) and price is expected to be around Rs. 80 lakhs. After the launch, the sports saloon will be the fastest saloon on Indian roads from Audi’s stable.

The Audi S6 will be a mind-boggling performer crafted for the people who desire the restless performance of a twin-turbo petrol engine in a executive saloon. The launch of the Audi S6 will be a great competition to the BMW M5 as both the cars feature almost same specifications and also perform in a similar manner, but the price factor would possibly be a game changer for the German automaker.
