RE: New S6 - Help I'm inna dark!
Ti, I say this because of two things:
1. The S8 has 360hp out of the same engine, so actually, the S6 is
2. The M5 and E55 which inevitably are going to be compared to the
S6, are far more powerful, even if they lack the all-weather traction.
3. The RS6 is supposed to be on the horizon, to put the M5 and E55
out of their misery. I hope this is true, as Audi has fallen a bit
short the last time, with the S4 vs. E34 M5 and W126 500E (126 I think).
(I guess I cheated- three things)
You also have to remember that the S6 is something like 3800lbs., IIRC.
That's a lot of weight. Put 340hp in something the weight of my 5kcstq
and it would put the other German competition to shame. Hmmmm. Maybe
that's what I need- AAN transplant, 6 spd. tranny, RS2 bits, Sachs sport
clutch, MTM chip... 340hp! I just need to sell some body parts to do this.

Oops, Taka is right. The new S6 is a souped up V8 with no turbo.
The yet-to-come RS6 is going to be a bi-turbo V8.
Now, I am not sure I'd say that any 340hp machine to be "nothing to
write home about", though. My oh my, have times changed!
