Frankfurt Show Preview: New Audi S6 and S6 Avant
AUGUST 30, 2011

Joining the brand-new S7 Sportback in its world premiere at next month's Frankfurt motor show will be the latest iterations of Audi's S6 saloon and Avant models.
If you've already read the story on the S7, then you won't be surprised to learn that both the S6 and S6 Avant pack the same 4.0-liter TFSI twin-turbocharged V8 with 420-horses and a constant 550 Nm (405.66 lb-ft) of torque from 1,400 to 5,300 rpm, which replaces the naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 of the previous model.

Once again, power flows to the wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and Audi's permanent all-wheel drive system.

In terms of performance, the S6 sedan is slightly faster than the S7 when it comes to acceleration as it completes the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 4.8 seconds, while the Avant versions matches the five-door model with a time of 4.9 seconds.

Both the S6 sedan and station wagon have an electronically governed top speed of 250 km/h (155mph).
