2012 Audi S6 Review

By luanpa in | February 11, 2011 | (5) Comments

Audi has launched the all-new 2012 Audi A6, Audi S6 is a high-performance version of the Audi A6 sedan, The 2012 Audi S6 when introduced was almost the same as the Audi S4 which was going out of production.

The All-new 2012 Audi S6 will be using the recently released TT S-line TTS model as well as design elements on the show,  the changes includs  the S-line front air orifice increased the number of bright silver trim, silver mirror, S Series models with horizontal bar grille and big mouth about the two platinum gray four exhaust tail pipes.

The new 2012 Audi S6 is powered by a Lamborghini-sourced 5.2-liter V10. While slightly revised and detuned, it still produces 425 hp and 398 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic and a 40/60 is equipped with the Quattro All-wheel drive. Despite this impressive-sounding pedigree, the S6 is unfortunately disappointing. Audi claims a 0-60-mph time in the low 5-second range, though in our testing we did no better than 5.7 seconds. That’s slower than the supercharged V6-powered A6 3.0T, let alone its hard-core competitors from BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz.

The Audi S6 comes standard with 19-inch cast aluminum wheels. The standard tire spec is 265/35 R19, providing plenty of grip for spirited driving. The S6 has four large disc brakes measuring 15.2 inches in diameter up front and 13 inches at the rear.

    HEY, TO EVERYBODY OUT THERE, WHAT THIS PERSON SAID IS TOTALLY FALSE. THE NEW 2012 AUDI S6 IS POWERED BY A 4.0 V8 TFSI TWIN-TURBO PRODUCING 408 BHP NOT 425 AND CENTURY SPRINT IS IN 5 SECOND FLAT.

      Yeah, this article makes no sense, given that the A6 has 300 hp and a 5.5s 0-62 mph (0-100 kmph). Something around 4.9s makes more sense. I hope it comes to the U.S. around June/July! I am excited!

    Hey,
    The new 2012 Audi S6 is expected to come with quite a few standard amenities and exceptional mechanical architecture.

    408hp v8, 425hp v10, either way, the car is disappointing. I drive an A6 and was planning to get into the S6 within the next month or 2, but the amount of car for the price just isn’t worth it. Audi needs to step up their performance if they plan on keeping its customers.

      audis do perform well; that numb and effortless feeling is what the company specializes in. If that that makes you think the car cant perform, then obviously its your driving style and the car doesn’t complement each other – its rather simple.
