Audi's Secret Super Diesel Electric Turbo Prototype Is Fast As Hell

For ages, Audi has continually tried to push diesel powered cars on an American market that, for many silly reasons, just isn't all that interested. » 9/25/12 2:00pm 9/25/12 2:00pm

Audi rolled out two new A6 sedans here today. The standard model in a devilish red and the A6 Hybrid, which can travel 62mph on electric power alone by way of a 45hp e-motor, in a more angelic silver. » 1/10/11 2:00pm 1/10/11 2:00pm

Audi Reveals 2009 A6 Sedan, Avant And New Fuel-Sipping TDIe Model In…

The new 580 HP 2009 Audi RS6 Sedan is a very exciting proposition, but for the rest of us there's this, the 2009 Audi A6 Sedan and Avant. Perhaps the most relevant additions are the new TDIe models which squeeze maximum efficiency from the 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine via modified transmission ratios, a power… » 8/12/08 11:20am 8/12/08 11:20am

2009 Audi A6

We were enamored with the 2007 Audi A6 and have been anxious to see how Audi would tweak the svelte sedan for its 2009 facelift. Though not a major mechanical overhaul, this latest A6 gets a revised front fascia that includes lower, flared intakes inspired by the sporty Audi A5. Don't let the lack of obvious,… » 5/28/08 1:00pm 5/28/08 1:00pm

2007 Audi A6 3.2L, Part Three

Why you should buy this car:
Buy this car if you want a large luxury sedan with impeccable fit and finish, cool toys and one of the smoothest powertrains you'll ever have the pleasure of piloting. When you order one, be very careful picking your color and wheels. There's a tan A6 with the base model wheels around… » 3/06/08 12:00pm 3/06/08 12:00pm

2007 Audi A6 3.2L, Part Two

Exterior Design: ***
It works and it doesn't. While this luxury sedan has nice, though moderately conservative, styling on the front and rear end, the A6's profile is something Ingolstadt must fix. It is this car's Achilles heel.


Interior Design: ****
The spot you conduct your asphalt assault from is a really nice… » 3/05/08 12:00pm 3/05/08 12:00pm

2007 Audi A6 3.2L, Part One

Within the first five minutes of my week-long test-drive of the 3.2-liter 2007 Audi A6, I was pretty sure a speeding ticket was on the way. Turns out I was almost right. Tearing down a road at a rate somewhat above the posted limit, I came around a bend to see a sheriff approaching me in the other lane. I knew I was… » 3/04/08 1:40pm 3/04/08 1:40pm

Audi Steam Hammer: Abt AS6 3.0 TDI

Will diesels ever fill the performance gap with gas burners in the car-buying marketplace (and not just the Le Mans track)? Perhaps. The Kempten tuners at Abt say they've tweaked 300 horsepower from Audi's 3.0 TDI. It's a 20 percent increase from stock, by way of a supercharger and ECU remapping. It can turn under… » 9/24/07 1:38pm 9/24/07 1:38pm

Audi RS6 Avant

We waited so long for our take-out order this past weekend, we'd have gladly ponied up six figures to buy the delivery dude a V10-powered Audi RS6 Avant. Of course if we had that kind of money lying around, we'd just buy one for ourselves and pick our order up. That is, if we could. Audi's yet to announce plans for a… » 8/13/07 2:45pm 8/13/07 2:45pm

Matt Damon Drives Audi A6 Off A NYC Parking Garage...Backwards


Apparently crashing a "Touareg 2" isn't the only bit of automotive hoonage from the upcoming new Jason Bourne movie. There's also this great clip of Film Actors Guild name-chanter Matt Damon, taking an Audi A6 off the roof of a NYC parking garage — and he does it all backward. You know, because doing it going forward… » 7/31/07 8:00pm 7/31/07 8:00pm

Let's Go to the Videotape: Audi RS6 On the 'Ring

Those lovable scamps over at Fast Lane Daily plugged some spy footage of the upcoming Audi RS6 into their midday newscast. Gathered by Automedia at Germany's Nürburgring, the clip shows Audi's answer to the Mercedes E63 AMG and BMW M5 in effect, its larger air intakes, the wider fender flares and rear diffuser… » 6/15/07 4:18pm 6/15/07 4:18pm

Fourtitude In A Tizzy Over Matt Damon's Audi A6

The next Jason Bourne movie's been filming in the town where it's time to be a part of it, and Audi fan forum-site Fourtitude's all over it like Matt Damon on Ben Affleck. Or would that be Ben Affleck on Matt Damon? Who really knows for sure — the point is they're pointing us to the folks at aLive from New York who've… » 5/11/07 10:30am 5/11/07 10:30am

Right in the Nose: Racedesign's Audi A6 Makeover

There are a million stories in the naked city. Folks buy an expensive German sedan just as the company launches a new generation. We've seen the symptoms, as jealousy gives way to indignation ("Yuck. They've ruined it!) Secretly, however, there's a longing for smoother lines, radical noses and uprated mechanicals.… » 12/28/06 7:39am 12/28/06 7:39am

Dubspeed Tests the Audi S6 and S8

Our boy Zerin at Dubspeed sent his man Wes Grueninger off to French Canada to flog the V10-powered angry brothers of the A6 and A8, and came back...well, we're not entirely sure. He had nits and picks about both models, but as if seemed like he liked them and was suitably impressed with the precision of most… » 11/06/06 1:30pm 11/06/06 1:30pm

Audi Rocks LeMans-Edition A6 Diesel

Audi's new ad slogan should be "Have we mentioned lately how much we rocked LeMans?" The company is launching a special-package A6 powered by a 3.0-liter diesel (sorry, no 650-horsepower TDI V12). The A6 LeMans is based on Audi's S-Line spec, including 19" alloys; a lowered suspension; interior accoutrements like in… » 7/20/06 10:03am 7/20/06 10:03am
