2013 Audi S6

Who says you can't have a sports car and a world-class luxury sedan in one stylish package? That's the 2013 Audi S6 in a nutshell. It goes fast, looks great and has one of the nicest interiors we've ever seen. Here are five reasons to put one in your driveway.

1. Rocket-Ship Acceleration

The previous Audi S6 had an intriguing fling with an exotic Lamborghini V10, but the new S6 adopts a luscious twin-turbocharged V8, and that's progress. Boasting an incredibly smooth 420 horsepower (that's almost as much as the R8 super car), the S6 was born to rule the fast lane. What's more, the 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission is one of the fastest shifters, yet it's ultra smooth as well. Result? The new S6 is actually much quicker than the old one, sprinting to 60 miles per hour in under four seconds versus the old car's five seconds plus.

2. Executive-Class Cabin

Audi's interiors have long been among the best in the business, but the S6 takes it to a whole new level. Check out the high-resolution displays, the stitching on the seats and the cockpit-like control layout. The attention to detail here is frankly astounding. Settling into the S6 after a long day, you'll never feel like you settled for second best.

3. Sports Car Handling, Luxury Car Ride

Blessed with a standard sport rear differential and quick, accurate steering, the S6 will make mincemeat of your favorite winding road. But its standard air suspension makes sure you never get beat up over bumps. Is it the best of both worlds? It's a cliche, but there's no better way to describe the S6 driving experience.

4. Top-Shelf Technology

As one of Audi's top-of-the-line models, the S6 comes with every high-tech trick in the bag. The MMI infotainment system features an 8-inch central display, a touch pad that can recognize fingertip handwriting and even satellite-linked navigation with Google Earth imagery. The Bose audio system serves up warm, full sound that'll have you prolonging the drive just to hear another song. Heck, the S6 serves as a Wi-Fi hot spot for up to eight wireless devices. Audi wanted this car to be known for its features as well as its performance, and it shows in the final product.

5. Understated Styling

Some high-performance cars wear their speed on their sleeve, if you will, but the S6 plays it close to the vest. Only real enthusiasts will notice the S6's subtle styling signals, which include a platinum-colored grille, unpainted aluminum exterior mirrors, a rear lip spoiler and four modest exhaust outlets. To everyone else, this Audi is just another sleek sedan, so it's a great choice for flying under the radar.

The Bottom Line

The 2013 Audi S6 is quite simply a superior automobile. Whatever you could ask of a car, there's a pretty good chance the S6 has it covered. Drive one (fast!) and you'll understand.
