Audi S6 launch in India July 12 to challenge BMW M5 and Mercedes Benz E63 AMG
Audi S6 launch is scheduled within 10 days of RS5 being introduced. A series of new launched and facelifts are lined up in helping Audi cement their winning streak in the Indian luxury auto market. While curiosity pertaining to a fast car is always piqued, in case of S6 it’s seen higher since there’s been a long wait.
The vehicle was showcased here at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.¬†Based on the regular A6, the upcoming S6 will display an enhanced air of performance and sportiness thanks to a sporty body kit and a lower stance, mammoth wheels wrapped in low profile rubber, stiffer suspension and a more powerful engine. S6 gets power from a 4 litre TFSI V8 petrol engine that offers 420 PS power and 550 Nm torque.
Mated to a 7 speed dual clutch S tronic gearbox, the Quattro AWD goes fro 0 to 100 kmph in 4.8 seconds. As is the norm with high speed capable vehicles, top speed is electronically limited to a top speed of 250 kmph. Audi S6 takes on BMW M5 and Mercedes Benz E63 AMG. There may be a surprise in store as far is competitive price is concerned as RS5 was only just launched at the almost Rs 1 crore tag.
