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.
