2003 Audi S6 specs

The Audi S6 is a high-performance version of the Audi A6, an executive car produced by German automaker Audi. It went on sale in 1994, shortly after the "A6" designation was introduced, replacing the "100" nameplate. The original S6 was largely the same car as the outgoing, original Audi S4, with the only visible differences being new body-cladding and badging.

The S6, like all Audi "S" models, is fitted as standard with Audi's trademark quattro four-wheel drive (4WD) system, the S6 using the Torsen-based permanent 4WD.

Audi was restructuring their model lineup in early and mid-1990s, and in 1995 began selling the fifth generation (C4) Audi 100 model re-badged as the Audi A6. Wanting to keep a sports-saloon in their lineup, the company made small revisions to what was previously known as the Audi S4, renaming it the Audi S6; the S4 name would eventually be re-used for a completely different model derived from Audi's smaller Volkswagen Group B platform-based Audi A4. As this was the first S6 model from Audi, it is commonly referred to as the Ur-S6, derived from the German augmentive, Urspr√ľnglich (meaning: original).

It was available as both a saloon/ sedan, and an "Avant" (estate/ wagon) to European and United States customers, but only as a saloon in Canada, Asia and Australia.
