Audi A6

  The Audi A6 is a full size executive sedan from the German luxury automaker that was introduced to replace the Audi 100 in 1994 and is currently in its fourth generation. Powered by everything from the tiny 1.8T four cylinder to V8s with Fuel Stratified Injection, the A6 competes head to head with the BMW 5-Series. While an M5 may be in the same league as the S6 powered by a Lamborghini derived 5.2 Liter all aluminum V10 that made 429 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque accelerates from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.2 seconds and runs the quarter mile in only 13.5, but BMW has nothing on the 572 HP Biturbo RS6.

The Audi A6 Avant isn’t necessarily the most awesome model that the German automaker offers, but it is one of just a handful of luxury wagons available on the market. However, when Audi introduced the new 3.0 Biturbo engine with 313 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, which affords it a 5.3-second 0-to-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint and a 155 mph top speed, we couldn’t help but take notice.

Apparently, Senner Tuning took notice too, as it just introduced a tuning package for the A6 Avant 3.0 TDI Biturbo that takes the A6 Avant to a new level. The tuner installed its Stage 2 tuning kit for the 3.0 TDI Biturbo engine, a sport air filter and a power convertor for the drive-by-wire system to help boost its output to 374 horsepower and 572 pound-feet of torque. Though Senner did not disclose the performance numbers of this retuned A6 Avant, we estimate it at 5 seconds to 100 km/h (62 mph) and a top speed of 180 mph.

With this boost in power, Senner also chose to increase its adhesion to the road. It started off by installing a KW Street Comfort coil-over kit that drops the A6’s ride height by 30 to 55 mm (1.18 to 2.16 inches). Senner also gives buyers the choice of two 9.5-by-20-inch wheels — Varianza T1S or Sword SC1 — with high-gloss black on the faces and high-gloss anodized beads. The rims are wrapped in 255/35R20 Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta rubber.

Other than the custom wheels and the lowering kit, the A6 ’s exterior remains unchanged, making this the perfect sleeper kit for any owner.

If you want to buy a high-performance station wagon, there are not too many models to choose from, but the Audi S6 Avant is definitely a very good option. In its standard setup, the S6 Avant boasts a 4.0-liter V-8 engine with a total output of 420 horsepower and 550 Nm (406 pound-feet).

Sure, those are rather astounding numbers for a wagon, but this beast can get even more powerful, the only question is where to turn to get a nice boost. ABT Sportsline is happy to answer your S6 -tuning query with its performance kit that adds another 180 horsepower and 200 Nm (147 pound-feet) to the V-8’s final output.

As a result, the AS6-R now pumps out a total of 600 horsepower and a peak torque of 553 pound-feet, which is 40 horsepower and 37 pound-feet more torque than the base RS6 Avant. The ABT AS6-R can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.9 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 12.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 310 km/h (192 mph).

The Audi A6 includes some new features and options for 2014 to invigorate sales of the aluminum-bodied luxury sedan. The U.S. market has been a bit of a dud for the new-shape design since its arrival as a 2012 model. That is not stopping its prospects elsewhere in the world.

The lengthened A6L is China’s most popular limousine by far. Everyone knows Chinese businessmen like the ride in the back seat. There’s much more to that preference than image and prestige.

Here are two little-known facts:

  • It is much easier and cheaper to pay someone to drive you to and from work in China than it is to park in urban centers.
  • The same businessmen who ride in the back during the week usually drive the car themselves on weekends, so the cars need more dynamic prowess than many believe.

Once these factors are considering, the option of a luxury shuttle for about $20 a week sounds great. Many Americans would jump at the chance to do the same thing.

That is not how we operate, however, so the A6 comes to our shores ready for a knock-down, drag-out brawl with two of the most competent luxury sedans on the market, the Mercedes-Benz E350 and the BMW 535i .

Do the A6’s luxury cockpit, advanced engines and sophisticated design offer enough incentive to lure conquest sales from other German brands? The company sure hopes so and even offers a $1,500 bonus to Mercedes and BMW drivers when they buy an A6 (or many other Audi models).

German tuner, ABT Sportsline, has prepared an aggressive offensive for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Alongside the RS5-R and the R8 GT-R , the tuner is also going to unveil a kit based on the S6 Avant. In total, the three packages are delivering an amazing output of 1,860 horsepower, so it looks like ABT’s stand is going to be very crowded.

With its new tuning package based on the S6 Avant , ABT wants to prove that even an everyday car can be transformed into "an invincible super sports car."

The standard version S6 Avant is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that produces 420 horsepower, but ABT managed to increase this output by 180 horsepower to a total of 600 horsepower - an output that makes it even more powerful than the RS6 Avant, which delivers a total of "only" 560 horsepower!

Full details will be unveiled during the car’s official debut in Geneva.

A 48-hour-long stretch of back and forth on the R8 e-tron was enough to make our heads spin. One side was saying that the e-tron may see production in limited units and the other flat out said no way, just a day later. Now, we have even more e-tron news to confuse us all.

According to a report from AutoBlog.nl, rumors are circulating that Audi is working on a Sportback version of the A6 that will feature the same e-tron technology that the recently axed R8 e-tron featured, on a less massive scale, of course.

This hot hatchback is rumored to make its debut at the 2013 IAA in Frankfurt and will feature a 300-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-banger with 100 ponies worth of electric motor added to it. This would give the A6 e-tron a total of 400 horsepower, just 20 horsepower short of the mighty 2013 S6 … not too shabby.

For now, these are just rumors that we take with a healthy serving of salt, given the on-and-off R8 e-tron. Regardless, this sounds like one bad-ass concept to say the least.

Previous rumors suggest that the 2013 Audi RS6 Avant will be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but considering the first images have already surfaced the internet we consider that the official debut will happen a little bit earlier than expected.

The first thing you will have to notice is that these leaked images confirm the previous rumors that the new RS6 will drop the usual V-10 engine in favor of a new V-8 TFSI engine. This engine till most likely be a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine that will deliver up to 570 horses. The RS6 will also feature Audi’s torque-sensing all-wheel-drive system, which is also revealed by the images.

The exterior on the other hand offers no surprise, as the new RS6 will be feature design elements we have already seen in previously announced Audi models. The interior looks also a little bit more elegant and the exterior looks to have picked up a set of ceramic brakes.

We’ll keep an eye out for more info!

It looks like Audi has just entered the Halloween spirit, a day letter its true, but better than ever. The company has just unveiled the A6 and A7 Black Editions, two models that combine their more emphatic styling with the most extensive equipment list in each range. Prices will range from £35,010 ($56,500) to £56,785 ($91,600).

As their name suggest the two models will be distinguished by black finish for the grille and number plate surrounds and the window frame strips, plus tinted windows. The two special editions will be offered with a new set of wheels, sized 20" for the A6 and 21" for the A7. The wheels are painted in dark titanium finish and are combined with lowered sports suspension.

For the interior the Black Edition will get sports seats upholstered in black Valcona leather, a BOSE surround sound system, DAB digital radio and the Audi Music Interface (AMI) for iPod connection.

Customers will have the possibility to choose between three engines: a 3.0-litre BiTDI unit 313, a 2.0-litre TDI unit with 177 HP and a 3.0-litre TDI with 204 HP.


Leave it to ABT Sportsline to come up with a tuning program for the Audi A6 that fans of the four rings will appreciate.

The German tuner always brings their game when it comes to programs for Audi and this one is no different. It features a slew of aerodynamic and performance improvements that not only add vibrancy to the elegance of the new A6 , but also provide added power that’s bound to get noticed.

Looking at the components, ABT Sportsline gave the now rechristened AS6 with a number of new parts, including a new front spoiler, side skirts, a rear spoiler, and a rear skirt set that comes with tailpipe exhaust tips. The program also comes with a new set of 19" to 21" ABT light alloy wheels

On its own, the A6 carries a number of engines under its hood, each of which ABT Sportsline has performance modifications for. Talk about thorough, right? The flagship 3.0-liter TDI model was given ABT Power to the tune of 270 horsepower, an increase from the standard 204-horsepower output of the regular model. If that isn’t enough, ABT also has what it calls "New Generation" enhancement, which increases the output from either 245 or 313 horsepower to 300 or 360 horsepower, respectively.

Meanwhile, the most powerful engine version of the line-up, the 3.0-liter TFSI, sees its output bump from 300 horsepower to 420 horsepower. Finally, the entry level 2.0-liter TDI wasn’t left out in the cold, getting 205 horsepower from the standard model’s 170-horsepower output.

The 3.0-liter BiTDI engine that Audi has developed has pretty much flipped what we think of diesel engines – that they are torque-loaded but underpowered – on its rear. MTM has taken the A6 3.0 BiTDI, which we don’t see in the U.S., and turned it into even more powerful of a ride, as well as helping look and handle a little better.

The A6 3.0 BiTDI’s body remains essentially unchanged with MTM’s package and we don’t mind one bit. The A6’s body is pretty sexy, for a station wagon, so we are happy to see that MTM didn’t go overboard with the body kit for it. The only styling change added to the A6 are a set of custom wheels. There are actually a variety of Bimoto wheels available from MTM for this package, which range from €1,729 to €5,230 ($2,140 to $6,471 at current rates).

Helping the handling and ride height is an aftermarket F-Cantronic ECU for the air suspension, which allows you to drop the car’s center of gravity up to 25 mm (0.98 inches). This increases both handling and gives the A6 a more stylish look. This ECU runs €1,740 ($2,153 at current rates).

Helping the A6 come to a halt is a brake upgrade that includes 380 x 34 mm (14.96- x 1.33-inch) rotors with 8-piston calipers squeezing them. This kit runs €4,900 ($6,063), but you can opt for another upgrade that includes 405 x 36 mm (15.94- x 1.41-inch) rotors for an additional €1,500 ($1,856), but to get this size, you must opt for at least 20-inch wheels.

The engine sees some significant increases too, as the base ECU modification, which costs €1,700 ($2,103) will net you 365 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. This is a 57-horsepower and 81 pound-feet bump from stock. You can pump this up to a full 381 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque for an extra €100 ($123).

In all, this package will run between €10,069 ($12,464) and €15,170 ($18,771), depending on the options you choose. That’s quite a hefty fee, but this will make your A6 a true screamer.

Audi A6

The Audi A6 is wedged in the middle of Audi’s A lineup and often gets neglected. Typically, its sportier smaller siblings or more powerful larger brethren garner all of Audi’s attention. Seemingly every year, the other A cars are getting upgrades and new additions, but not the poor little A6. Well, it looks like Audi is about to give the A6 a little love this coming model year.

Audi is planning to add in some upgrades to the base level A6 2.0T to make it a little more desirable, according to a report. The first of the additions is an all new transmission. Last year, the base level A6 2.0T only had a CVT available, and for those of us that enjoy driving, a CVT just does not cut it. This year, Audi is adding an eight-speed automatic transmission to the A6’s line of available options.

Even better than getting a new transmission, the second addition is going to be the availability of Audi’s Quattro system on the 2013 A6 2.0T. Last year, the only model that had the Quattro system available was the A6 3.0. So, now you can get you AWD and not have to deal with the 19 mpg that the supercharged 3.0-liter engine leaves you with.

From here, it looks as if Audi is continuing on its path of wise decisions, despite the exit of the executive that receives most of the credit for the brand’s recent growth. It’s nice to see someone take over the wheel of successful company and not try to reinvent it. With the recent success of Audi, the best option is to just continue down the same path.
