Audi FSI extends to v8 A6 and A8
Four Audi A6 and A8 models will reap the economy and performance benefits of the latest Audi V8 engine with advanced FSI direct petrol injection technology from this week.
With prices starting from £44,475, the new A6 4.2 FSI quattro Saloon and Avant variants are now available to order, as are the standard and long wheel base A8 4.2 FSI quattros, which are priced from £58,305 OTR. Deliveries of all models for UK customers are due to start in July.
The new 350PS 4.2 litre FSI engine replaces the 4.2-litre 335PS unit that has powered the A6 and the A8 models since its launch. The A6 4.2 FSI quattro models can get from 0-62mph in 5.9 seconds, A8 4.2 FSI quattros go the distance in 6.1 seconds and all versions can reach a top speed of 155mph.
Despite being quicker off the mark and more powerful than its predecessor, the new A6 4.2 FSI quattro has the potential to cover 39 extra miles on each tank of fuel, and the A8 can manage 47. This means that the driver will enjoy the benefits of the equivalent of more than a gallon of extra petrol for no extra outlay.
