Car Description

The S6, the latest product to result from the systematic application of Audi's philosophy of sportiness, will go on sale in the spring of 2006. Its appearance will coincide with the launch of the S6 Avant, the estate-car version.

In response to the challenge to deliver supreme performance the new Audi S6 will be powered by the Lamborghiuni Gallardo’s engine, developed by Lamborghini in conjunction with Audi. The 5.2-litre V10 incorporates bespoke features that tailor its much-loved character to meet luxury saloon requirements, without diluting it.

Both the driveline and the steering and suspension have been modified to reflect the immense power potential of the new Audi S6. The six-speed tiptronic automatic transmission, supplied as standard, accomplishes swifter gear changes; the steel-spring suspension is configured for greater agility and a more direct response, as is the servotronic steering. The latest-generation quattro permanent four-wheel drive with a 40:60 torque split naturally ensures optimum propulsion in all conditions. Thanks to this concept, the new Audi S6 sets itself apart as the progressive alternative to all its competitors.

The interior offers a luxurious atmosphere. It features, for instance, new sports seats complete with integral head restraints, exclusive leather/Alcantara upholstery on all five seats and deluxe automatic air conditioning plus, with separate temperature distribution for the driver's and front passenger's sides.

For all the uncompromising and methodical nature of the technical concept, the external appearance of the Audi S6 is decidedly understated and elegant. The S6 saloon is characterised by such features as 19-inch wheels, subtly flared front wheel arches, the striking single-frame grille with vertical double struts and a harmoniously integrated rear spoiler, and the Avant has a modified roof spoiler.
