2013-audi-s6-la-auto-showCheck out the brand new blown Audi S6 drag racing. This S6 has the same 420-hp  4.0-liter V-8engine that is in the 2013 Bentley Continental GT.

This particular Audi S6 has a tune and dyno’s 450hp at all four corners on a Mustang Dyno. We captured it in the wild drag racing at Palm Beach International Raceway in South Florida.

Even though the S6 looks a bit bland on the outside it has good potential. 11.7 @ 117mph is nothing to sneeze at. All wheel drive and a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds stock is very competitive.

The RS7 with 560hp will be the car to compete with when the new Mercedes AMG all wheel drive turbo monsters arrive this summer 2013!
