4.2-liter mid-mounted V8 which makes 420 bhp and 430 lb-ft of torque, price: $100,000. 0-60 is stated as 4.6 seconds. And Quattro, of course. Jon.

Nurburgring video. It's basically a poor man's Gallardo. Very nice, nevertheless.

Good looking car... but 4.6? Why so slow?

Looks pretty dope, though I agree that it shares many similarities with the Gallardo.

There's a very good reason for that: it's based on it.

So I've read. Though, the engine is taken down a few notches.

Its not the same engine, it's the 4.2 liter V8 from the RS4. The 5.0 liter V10 from the Lambo is used in the Audi S6 and the S8.

I saw an S6 today...holy crap what a sleeper car! It was just cruising along and then I passed it at around 80 mph and the car all the suddenly passed me at lightning speed. I guess that's what happens when you put a Lamborghini V10 into a sedan.

I didn't even know that Audi owned Lamborghini. That car in the pic sure is sexy though. And it's pretty cool that they put the lambo engine into their high-end sedan.

Does Audi still make the S6? I thought the last S6 they made was around 2003 or 2004, in the older estate body style (the previous version before the current estate body style).
