Product Overview

Audi S6 C7 (Typ 4G) facelift is an executive sports sedan in production from 2014 to 2018. It was powered by an up-rated version of the V8TT engine found in the pre-facelift model.
The main difference from pre-facelift indeed was surrounding this engine: Now putting out 450PS, it complies with Euro 6 emission standard; Audi also promises improved fuel economy. At the same time, however, there appears to have no material change to either the weight or other components of the drivetrain, making one wonder how much fuel consumption improvement can be observed in the real world.
Audi has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.28 coefficient of drag to show for it. The C7 S6 also comes with a high towing capacity. Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the vehicle comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
