Audi officially pulled the wraps off of the new S6 the other day, and hoo mami!. Cranking out 420hp allowing it to out-power an M5 that doesn't have the cojones button depressed from its V10, the new S6 and S6 Avant are a viable alternative to BMW's bahn-burner, as well as Merc's E55 AMG wagon.
Will it be enough? Time will tell, but VW needs something halo-esque right now, and while the S8 has incurred an awed-yet-bewildered "Huh?" from the motoring press, the S6 might just have a shot.
