Audi Launches All-New 2013 S6, S7, S8 Models

AJAX, ON, Sept. 12, 2012 /CNW/ – For the 2013 model year the Audi line-up will grow with a number of new additions to the portfolio. Few models will have more presence than the new S6, S7 and S8 which will make their Canadian debut today at the All-New Audi Lauzon Terminal. All three models will be beneficiaries of the new 4.0 TFSI V8, producing 420hp in the S6 and S7, while the S8 will have an output of 520hp. The engine of each of these 3 models will feature cylinder on-demand technology, allowing it to reduce the number of utilized cylinders from eight to four. The transition from eight to four happens in less than four hundred thousandths of a second, and helps reduce CO2 emissions as well as improve fuel economy. The S6 and S7 come equipped with a seven-speed S Tronic transmission, while the S8 utilizes an eight-speed tiptronic.
