Audi S6 Avant : Spy Shots
Looking mean and moody, the Audi S6 has been spotted in northern Sweden, where it’s undergoing cold-climate testing.
The S6 will have a version of the 5.5-litre V10 (550bhp) used in Audi’s Q7 off-roader. This is said to have been reduced in capacity to a mere 5.2 litres for the S6, in which it will develop around 440bhp. However, if that’s just not quick enough, a full-fat RS6 is on the way a year later, with the 550bhp unit.
The S6 Avant will be distinguished by its deeper front grille and airdam, 19-inch alloy wheels and double exhausts; it is also expected to have aluminium door mirrors, not seen on the car pictured here.
It is expected to make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in spring 2006.
