Having already inscribed success stories across the globe, the Audi S6 is the sporty and more power-packed version of the fascinating luxury sedan, Audi A6.

This new sports saloon (when it is finally launched) is going to bring its makers in direct competition (once again) with their arch rivals from Germany, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Audi A6 itself has been blessed with such gorgeous looks and powerful mechanicals, and S6 being the superior model is just creating havoc with all this waiting.

At 16mm longer than its sedan-brother, this sports machine is the master of a much more captivating pack of traits. First and foremost, the front facade; a large single-frame grille with horizontal slats, outlined in chrome and set with the Audi rings in the top-centre spans the front of Audi S6.

Flanking this aggressive grille is a pair of xenon headlamps at the upper and a pair of rounded fog-lamps at the lower end. The headlights are shaped similar to the ones that have been seen recently on all Audi models with day-time lights running along them.

Spanning over the machinery is a large and glistening bonnet that meets a sleek and stylish waist-line on the sides.

To make the side profile more flashy but in a classy way, aluminium covers for the ORVMs have been used while giving the window frame an outline of glittering chrome.

The rear-end of Audi A6 gets adorned with sharply-cut large LED tail lamps, a sporty rear spoiler and twin elliptical exhausts dipped in chrome.

The overall structure of this German beauty is quite lean which perfectly suits its sporty self, but even in that elegant form, cuts and curves have been smartly incorporated that do not miss out on bringing out the aggression and force that are supposed to be possessed by a sports car.

The aggression on the outside is reflected under the hood as well.

A 4.0-litre TFSI V8 petrol engine that comes mated to a 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission gearbox and the Quattro AWD system has been employed by the German car-major to fuel this speed-machine.

This engine makes use of twin-turbo technology to churn out a mighty 420bhp for a maximum of 550Nm torque across the rev-range starting from a figure of 1400rpm to that of 5300rpm.

With this kind of a power-house put to the job, it is not a surprise that Audi S6 can dash away from a standstill to a 100kmph mark within 4.8 seconds while the top speed that it can achieve is 250kmph.

But being the bundle of immense power and thrilling speed that S6 is, it does not make it an excessive fuel-burner like the other holders of V8 twin-turbo mills.

Blessed with the cylinder deactivation technology, this new luxury is able to cut down its fuel-requirements by 25 per cent bringing the mileage up to 10.30kmpl.

Coming to the gadgetry now; the cockpit zone of the Audi S6 is packed with a number of controls for the convenience of the driver that include night vision assistant, speed limit display, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go function, active lane assist and pre-sense safety features.
