Ajax, Ontario – Audi Canada has announced prices for its 2007 S6 and S8 models. The mid-size S6 sedan will start at $101,900, while the full-size S8 will start at $129,700. Both models will be available at Audi dealerships across Canada in October.
The S6 is now the top of the A6 range in Canada. It is powered by a newly developed ten-cylinder engine of 5.2 litres which produces 435 hp at 6,800 rpm and peak torque of 398 ft.-lbs. between 3,000 and 4,000 rpm. The S6 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. The S6’s dynamic suspension settings have been made firmer, even compared with the A6 sports suspension.
The S8, based on the all-aluminum A8 sedan, is also equipped with the 5.2-litre V10 engine that delivers 450 hp at 7,000 rpm and 398 ft.-lbs. of torque. It has a sport-tuned adaptive air suspension: its air springs and shock absorbers integrated into the air-springs are somewhat firmer. As well, the S8 is factory fitted with newly developed S-design 20-inch cast aluminum wheels, and a special interior with an optional Bang & Olufsen sound system.
