WHATIS IT? Audi S6 WHYTHE FUSS? Go-fast hero with less power

WHEN’S IT HERE? Next year HOW­MUCH? Ap­prox­i­mately $170,000 There is some­thing taste­fully re­strained about the com­ing Audi S6.

The mid-sized S-car still has four tailpipes, a more ag­gres­sive nose and side skirts but there are fewer ob­vi­ous go-faster body bits.

The Ger­man make also has been more re­strained in the en­gine room, ac­cord­ing to Carparazzi sources, re­mov­ing the 5.2-litre V10 fit­ted to the out­go­ing S6. Next time around, judg­ing from this car caught on a trip from Ger­many to Gothen­burg in Swe­den, the pow­er­plant is a tur­bocharged 4.0-litre V8 that also might do dou­ble duty in a Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT.
