The S6 a true dual purpose car

It's no wonder that the royal family of England just love Audis and why shouldn't they? Audi is one those brands that successfully combines performance and utility in one elegant car. And right now Audi--luxury unit of Volkswagen and recipient of quality VW starters ---has again proven its ingenuity with the launching of its S6 sedan.

The S6 sedan is a four-door sedan which is packed with excitement and performance of a sports car and at the same time offering a handy family/lifestyle-friendly feel.

Power is plenty... The S6 is a total performance package and the biggest part of the S upgrade is the V10 engine. The combination of the 10 cylinders with the FSI technology gives the S6 with a unique technological position in the market. The 10 cylinders and FSI provide the S6 with 435 horsepower at 6800 rpm and churns up 398 lb-ft of torque at an engine speed not lower than 3100 rpm.

Locomotion in motion The S6 engine power is delivered via a standard six-speed Tiptronic which adapts to your driving style by means of intelligent feature. The software program that controls the Tiptromic electronically has been optimized to deliver more gear changes. And if conditions are just right, the EPA indicates that you could get 15 mpg for city driving and 21 mpg for highway driving.

S6 saying on track... Beyond the technology packed engine and transmission combination is a Quattro permanent four-wheel drive system with asymmetric/dynamic torque split. Likewise, a self-locking center differential, installed longitudinally in the driveline distributes power between the front and rear wheels, depending on the traction the normal split is 40 percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear. In case of wheel spin it is brought under control by the Electronic Differential Lock EDL which applies the brakes.

The chassis of the S6 has firmer springs, dampers and more direct steering ration that ensures the S6 to reach the road with precision and minimal losses. The S6 can hit 60 mph in a matter of 5.1 seconds and reach top speed of 155 mph. it is also equipped with four large ventilated disc brakes, 15.2 inches in diameter up front and 13 inches in the rear.

The exterior design... The exterior of the S6 looks like a boxer in a custom tailored suit. The nose features a single-frame grille, vertical aluminum-look struts and an air inlet beneath the grille. A spoiler lip at the front end of the car provides it with the additional down force. The trim strips along the lower edge of the doors are body color and are made wider to highlight the S character. A rear spoiler was integrated to trunk lid while the aluminum-look exterior mirrors and V10 emblems add some bright work. The wheel/tire combo and low stance provides it with an aggressive look.

The interior design... The interior has a luxurious feel to it that doesn't detract the sports sedan presentation. Its new generation sports seats have integral head restraints and deep lateral supports all upholstered in Nappa leather.

The standard trim inserts are Grey Birch Wood. It also has a Driver Information System which comes as standard has an additional digital speedometer. At the center of the dash is a 7-inch color display. It Multi Media Interface is much better than BMW's iDrive.
