Audi’s S6 may very well be the biggest sleeper of the Audi model lineup. Combine the conservative business class looks of the A6 with the brand’s potent 4.0 TFSI biturbo V8 and a 7-speed S tronic and you have a car that promises pace, yet does so in a way that won’t be immediately noticed. That’s great if you like stealth. If you don’t, maybe you should call the guys at TAG Motorsports.

Driven: 2016 Audi S6 Sedan (Europe)

When it comes to performance Audis, we consider the S6 and its lineage to remain the brand’s “true north”. Over the years, things like consumer tastes change. Badges move to new nomenclature, supercars get launched and are subsequentally driven by super heroes, Avants become passé to some, while 4-door coupés prove lower slung and more sultry. Even through all of this, the S6 sedan remains, steadfast in its mission of bringing supercar challenging pace to the ever present form of a four door executive sedan. It is the model by which audi can measure its direction as readily as that little engraved “N” on your compass will help you find your way in a dense forest. More…

It all started two weeks ago. While our own George Achorn was sweating his way across the Southwestern United States as part of Audi’s #TDIChallenge, I was holding down the fort back here at Fourtitude’s East Coast office- or at least I was trying to.
