Audi claims that the S6 breaches the 0-100kmph mark in just 4.6 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph. Transferring power to all the four wheels via Audi's fabled Quattro technology is a 7-speed S-tronic DSG gearbox.

Audi claims a fuel efficiency of 10.3kmpl for the S6, thanks partly to the unique cylinder-on-demand (COD) tech which automatically shuts down four of the eight cylinders when not required.

Features differentiating the A6 and S6 are aluminum and chrome accents at the front fascia, S badges and the choice of 19 and 20-inch wheels on the latter. The S6's suspension is also on the stiffer side. It also comes with electrically adjustable front seats.

Audi's press release follows.

New Delhi, July 12, 2013: Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, today introduced the much awaited Audi S6 sedan in India. Audi S6 has a refined flow of power in conjunction with superlative comfort and elegant appearance. This sporty top version in the luxury-class family is priced at INR 85,99,000 (ex-showroom New Delhi) and is available at all Audi dealerships across India.?

"The letter "S" denotes the unrelenting quest at Audi for sportiness. In the S models, sportiness is the overriding principle, flanked by comfort, aesthetic appeal, elegance, uncompromising quality and high-performance engines.? The Audi S6 truly embodies the sporty and progressive philosophy of Audi. A powerful vehicle with a cabin full of high-end technology, the Audi S6 is a sports vehicle for everyday driving that offers a perfect combination of thrill, luxury and practicality. It redefines the benchmark yet again in its segment, while upholding and building on Audi's sporting legacy," said Mr. Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India.

The 2013 Audi S6 is a sports sedan that exemplifies control. The S6 pairs the 4.0-liter TFSIq® V8 twin turbo engine churning out 420 hp with the legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive. Advanced features include MMI® touch, 7 Speed S tronic® transmission, Adaptive Sport Air Suspension and quad exhaust outlets. The result is, inspired handling with elegance and style.

Unique on the Audi S6 is the Audi Cylinder–on–demand (COD) technology which automatically shuts down four of the eight cylinders when they are not required, and therefore produces lower emissions. The Active Noise Cancellation feature compensates for the noise interference inside the cabin depending on the in-cabin noise and engine noise.

While the Audi S6 is far sportier, the luxury quotient has not been compromised. The Audi S6 comes standard with 4 Zone Air Conditioner, Audi Parking Aid Plus, Electrically adjustable Sport Seats with memory functions for the driver, sun blinds, lighting packages and the likes.?

"Audi is the market leader in the sports car and high performance car segment with the Audi R8, Audi R8 Spyder, Audi S4 and Audi TT Coupé. We are now happy to add the Audi S6 to our portfolio after the launch of the new Audi RS 5 Coupé earlier this month. With these launches, I am confident of consolidating our leadership position even further," added, Mr. Perschke.??
