[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="57497"] words: Bill, photos: Cars & Classic Is there a more iconic color than Nogaro Blue for an Audi Avant?

Gallery of the Day: Audi S6 Sedan TDI and Avant TDI

  photos: Audi AG Note: Audi has released photos and technical details on the new Audi S6 Sedan and Avant…yes, TDI. If you aren’t aware yet, the new S models from Audi are all powered by diesel engines and it’s highly doubtful we in the States will ever see these on our shores. We will get a gasoline power plant in our S cars. While the engine will be different, our S6 Sedan (and hopefully, Avant) should be identical to the EU model and it’s a seriously good looking vehicle. Enjoy the ...

US Spec for S6 and S7, Plus New Pics

It was a bit of a surprise yesterday when Audi went and dropped initial details and photos of the upcoming S6 and S7 range. That initial focus was entirely on the diesel versions bound for Europe. 24 hours out from the drop, we've been able to get our hands on a few more photos and a few U.S. details. It's probably worth beginning with the spec. Audi has ended its diesel business in the USA, focusing instead on TFSI turbocharged engines, TFSI plug-in hybrids and full electric offerings. ...

Audi S6 Test Mule at Nurburgring

We received these photos a few weeks back  but they never made it onto the blog. It's time to fix that oversight, because the Audi S6 has been a longtime favorite of Audi enthusiasts since the model was lunched during the C4 era. A new C8 version is expected later this year, and the car you see here is the proof. Which engine the new S6 uses remains to be seen. The previous car sported a more entry level tune on Audi's 4.0 TFSI V8. And, while we believe another 4.0-liter turbo is set for ...
