You can really have fun with this car. Drive on rails, takes sharp turns at high speed effortlessly. The acceleration can be mind numbing, especially with Launch Control. Mine was well equipped (e.g. perf package, massage and ventilated seats, etc.) so it made it even more enjoyable. It's quiet and comfy when you want it to, like driving the family around, and you can wake up the beast for some personal fun on the track, empty canyon roads or highway ramps.

Disappointing test drive

by DLNH from NH | December 20, 2017

I really wanted to like the S6. C&D magazine gave it a win against the F10 M5 and E65. I drove it twice, extensively, because I really wanted to like it. Pros: The engine and transmission allow for extremely quick acceleration. It made me smile every time I put my foot down. It just GOES, extremely effortless acceleration. The interior is very well made. The displays are clear and beautiful. Cons: The car is not fun to drive unless you only care about acceleration. It is solid, quiet, stable, it can take high speed turns well, but the steering is so lifeless. You can change it to a nicely firm "sport" setting, but there is still no steering feel. It's like a better Lexus LS than Lexus could muster. I gave my $80k to the Porsche dealer next door.

New S6 V8 Prestige

by dickie from Denver, CO | June 24, 2017

Very elegant, smooth-driving understated beast. Feels like a nimble tank (3 driving modes) gripping the road with not-so-subtle 4 exhaust rumble. Has the latest in technology, with the great easy-to-use Audi navigation & cruise systems. Heads-up display a real bonus. Sport seats, with thigh extender, very comfortable; will be great on long trips, especially with the 4-cylinder deactivation fuel savings provision (probably more economical than V6). Feels like precision machine.
