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.
Audi is hosting a contest in the United Kingdom , that if won will have you shot "62 miles into space into the atmostphere" at a speed of 1500mph in the Xerus Sub-orbital vehicle(check picture)! Audi claims there new executive saloon Audi A6 had more issued patents for it than the Nasa bound "Man on the Moon" flight-hence the contest/advertising tie in. What do you have to do to win? Just tell them what you think is the best patented invention of all time and Why?- I am going with the Ipod.
Audi set a new benchmark in the luxury performance segment when it introduced the Audi A6 to North America. A scant one year later, the successful V8 and V6 variants are being joined by an A6 3.2 sedan with Audi’s revolutionary multitronic (CVT) transmission and FrontTrak front wheel drive. In all of its forms, the latest generation of the Audi A6 combines superior driving dynamÂics and sophisticated technology with exceptional comfort and equipÂment.
