2016 Audi S6 Performance

At the heart of the S6 is a rumbly 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 450 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission with Quattro all-wheel-drive to let you sprint from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4 seconds.

The 2016 Audi S6 is surprisingly efficient, considering its displacement and overall power. The EPA estimates 18 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined. It sports a 19.8 gallon fuel tank, so customers should be able to go about 415 miles before needing a pit stop.
