Audi S6: Refined power in the sports luxury class 2010

Audi S6
If you want to know everything about the Audi S6, this is the place to go.
A refined flow of power in conjunction with superlative comfort and an elegantly understated appearance: this is the new Audi S6. It is the sporty top model in the luxury-class family of models comprising the Audi A6 sedan and A6 Avant, which took the market by storm following their launch in 2004 and have since garnered countless accolades worldwide from both customers and experts within the trade.

The S6, the latest product to result from the systematic application of Audi's philosophy of sportiness, will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2006 (US and Canada market introductions).

In response to the challenge to deliver supreme performance that always remains perfectly under control, the new Audi S6 will be powered by a completely new ten-cylinder V-configuration engine. This engine, a virtually identical version of which is likewise fitted in the new Audi S8, makes maximum use of its resources: with a displacement of 5.2 liters, it mobilizes an output of 420 bhp at 6,800 rpm. It reaches its peak torque of 540 Nm (approximately 397 ft.-lbs.) between 3,000 and 4,000 rpm. Between 2,500 and 5,500 rpm, torque of over 500 Nm (approx. 368 ft.-lbs.) is available. This engine, weighing only 220 kilograms (approx. 485 lbs.), is thus able to guarantee superior pulling power in every driving situation.

FSI gasoline direct injection, a principle that has proved its worth in the most successful racing car ever built, the Le Mans winning Audi R8, plays an instrumental role in this model's refined flow of power. The S6 is capable of racing from 0 to 60mph in 5.1 seconds; the top speed is electronically governed to 155 mph.
