  clutch automatic amongst manual shifting fashion  novel Audi S6 inward 2013.

Audi’s lineup of V-8–powered due south models is growing, as well as each due south has its ain place. Of the iv models amongst the novel twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, the 420-hp S7 is the beauty, as well as the 520-hp S8 is the large daddy amongst lots of extra baubles. The Europhile’s choice, the S6 Avant, won’t hold out offered here, which leaves the four-door S6 every bit the serious functioning sedan. Under the skin, it is virtually identical to the S7. But thank you lot to the lack of a hatch as well as its slightly to a greater extent than compact dimensions, the S6 weighs most 100 fewer pounds, as well as it has a slightly narrower track. The chassis components are identical, however, as well as and hence are the engine as well as the transmission.
Which is a practiced thing. As inward the S7, the force-fed V-8 produces 420 hp at 6400 rpm, as well as maximum torque—an impressive 406 lb-ft—is available from 1400 all the means to 5200 rpm. The ability is seat through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission as well as a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system.
The 2013 S6 walks inward some large footprints. Its immediate predecessor was to a greater extent than powerful, packing a 435-hp naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10. And that powertrain was capable of sending a chill downwards your spine exactly from its F1-like exhaust note. The novel V-8 emits a menacing growl but doesn’t quite agree upwardly to the raging V-10. On the plus side, the novel engine is non entirely a fleck to a greater extent than torquey but too to a greater extent than efficient—by a whopping 25 percent, according to Audi. It’s also much quicker.

Hold On to Your Hüte
With launch command engaged, the sprint from 0 to threescore mph takes a mere 3.7 seconds, which is all the to a greater extent than impressive considering the engine’s little output (the final S6 needed 5.4 seconds to do the same deed). Top speed on the novel auto is express to 155 mph, although we’re told the S6 would hold out capable of some 190 if left ungoverned. The S6 is supposed to hold out a really efficient functioning sedan, thank you lot to depression engine friction as well as cylinder deactivation—we saw fourteen mpg over an admittedly strenuous workout, but EPA numbers should hold out closer to 17 mpg metropolis as well as 26 highway.
Positively Balanced
The combination of the torquey twin-turbo V-8 amongst a longer wheelbase, less front end weight bias, as well as less overall volume makes the novel S6 to a greater extent than of a driver’s auto than its predecessor. It is soundless large but is noticeably to a greater extent than tossable than the previous model. The electromechanical ability steering is surprisingly pleasant, calorie-free but progressive as well as good weighted. The optional torque-vectoring sport differential adds weight but offers extra agility that ambitious drivers volition easily experience. Grip from the Bridgestone Potenza tires measured 0.87 g on the skidpad, as well as nosotros managed a 157-foot halt from lxx mph. This isn’t the most hard-edged sports sedan, but its residual of comfort as well as sporting aggression is commendable.
The S6 is distinguished from the lesser, conservatively styled A6 sedan amongst a unique platinum-colored grille, horizontal elements inward the front end air intakes, aluminum mirror caps, a bring upwardly lip spoiler, as well as iv exhaust outlets. The front end intakes are surrounded past times an additional strip that follows their outer contour. This element, non yet introduce on the S7, volition hold out a trademark of all hereafter due south models, we’re told. Why a lip spoiler instead of a unique, fully formed trunklid? Because customers don’t notice the spoiler if it’s non a split element, the designer tells us, as well as because Audi already went to the boundary of manufacturing feasibility amongst the flexure of the A6’s aluminum trunklid. We volition cast yet some other vote for the optional dark woods as well as aluminum interior cut down nosotros liked as well as hence much inward the S7.
So fine, the S6 Avant volition rest inward the Old World, as well as the S7 is exactly a touching on heavier than this sedan. We’ll receive got to seat upwardly amongst the all-business S6—and amongst functioning similar this, nosotros won’t complain much
