Audi S6 Avant

In late 1997, Audi released an all-new range of Audi A6 models built on the Volkswagen Group C5 platform. An Audi S6 dubbed the Audi S6 quattro was unveiled a few years later to complete the A6 lineup. This model was available in a four-door saloon/sedan and a five-door Avant (estate/wagon), but only the latter body style was sold in North America. Boasting impressive performance, this vehicle was able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in a mere 5.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). It remained in production until 2003. C5 powertrain Powering the Audi S6 Avant was an all-aluminium alloy 4.2 litre 90° V8 with 40 valves and a 2-stage intake manifold. This engine (parts code: 077, identification codes: AQJ [Sept 99-May 1], ANK [Sept 00-onwards]) delivered 250 kilowatts (340 PS; 335 bhp) at 6,600 rpm and 420 newton metres (310 lbf·ft) of torque at 3,400rpm, adhering to the European Union's EU3 emissions standard. It featured manifold-sited sequential fuel injection, direct ignition with eight individual spark coils, Bosch longlife spark plugs, four heated lambda sensors, two catalytic converters, cylinder-selective knock control and a Bosch "E-Gas" drive by wire throttle. To ensure proper cooling, two electric cooling fans replaced the single viscous fan of earlier models.
