Audi S6 details:

The Audi S6 and Audi S6 Avant use the 309 Kw (420 hp) version of the new 4. 0TFSI. The twin-turbo V8 offers a constant 550 Nm (405. 66 lb-ft) of torque from 1400, to 5300, rpm. It accelerates the Audi S6 from 0 to 100 km/h (62. 14 mph) in 4. 8 seconds and the Audi S6 Avant in 4. 9 seconds. With both models, the electronically governed top speed of 250 km/h (155. 34 mph) is just a formality.

The 4. 0TFSI brings Audi's downsizing strategy to the high-performance class. Compared to the motor in the previous model, the free-breathing, 5. 2-liter V10, it provides even sportier performance while reducing fuel consumption by as much as 25 percent. Average fuel consumption is just 9. 7 liters per 100 km (24. 25 US mpg) in the Audi S6 and 9. 8 liters (24. 0US mpg) in the Audi S6 Avant, well below that of the competition.

A number of technologies contribute to this top result, including the recuperation and start-stop systems as well as the new cylinder on demand cylinder management system. When the V8 deactivates four cylinders under part load, the Active Noise Cancellation system (ANC) is activated. Four microphones integrated into the headlining record the noise in the cab, which is then analyzed by a computer. If the computer detects intrusive audio components, it broadcasts an antiphase audio via the speakers of the audio system. This audio features with the intrusive audio and largely cancels it out.
