2011 Audi S6 Overview
If you have a need for speed, then the powerful, yet nimble 2011 Audi S6 and its powerful V-10 are more than happy to oblige.
The 2011 Audi S6 is the performance version of the A6 and with one trim and engine option is as simple as it gets. A stunning 435-horsepower, 5.2-liter V-10 with FSI direct injection technology lurks beneath the sculpted hood and delivers torque through a six-speed automatic transmission to the Quattro all-wheel drive system. Sixty percent of the power is sent to the rear wheels, for optimum dynamic driving satisfaction. This powertrain yields 14 mpg around town and 19 mpg on the highway. Competition includes the BMW 5 Series, Infiniti M, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
The 2011 S6 features a more aggressive lean to it than the standard A6, with features like low-profile tires wrapped around 18-inch or 19-inch wheels and sleek body lines. But all of this performance doesn’t change the luxurious interior you expect from an Audi. Open the door of the S6 and enter a world dressed in supple leather, premium metal alloy, leather, and wood accents on the doors and dashboard, aluminum paddle shifters, and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Seat options include Milano leather seats or Silk Nappa leather sport seats.
Your thermal comfort is assured by dual zone climate control and heated seats both front and rear. The 2011 S6 features a navigation system with Audi’s Multi Media Interface and voice controls, aided by a spectacular 3D map graphics display on the seven-inch LCD screen. Bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights brighten your path, while a five-channel, 255-watt BOSE audio system and its nine speakers and iPod integration will stir your soul.
Safety for the 2011 Audi S6 is taken to another level with a rearview parking camera and Audi Side Assist blind spot warning system that shed some extra light on those hard to see spots so you can park and merge with greater confidence and safety. Adaptive front headlights can pivot up to fifteen degrees to brighten the field of vision where the driver needs it, as determined by vehicle speed and steering input. A flock of airbags surrounds occupants in case of impact, while Audi’s advanced aluminum space frame provides an unparalleled safe structure.
If you like the thrill of speed, appreciate luxurious amenities, and value high-tech safety features, then the powerful 2011 Audi S6 is your ticket to ride.
