2001 Audi A6 2.7T S-Line 6-speed

In the realm of overlooked Audis, the 2.7T A6 has to rank fairly high. It falls squarely off the radar of most enthusiasts, who focus on models like the S4, RS6 and S8 variants, or the V8 A6 and Allroad A6 variants. But ranking fairly high on the list of best sports sedans of the early 2000s list should be the 2.7T 6-speed – a S4 in a business suit. A few months bank I wrote up a A6 2.7T 6-Speed that reminded me of how great these cars are, yet how unappreciated they are by the general public. With a drivetrain capable of 300,000 miles plus, great tunability and a slick 6-speed gearbox, these are some of the last manual large sedans that Audi imported to these shores. Take a look at this lower mile Silver-blue example from the same seller as the earlier car:

Double Take: Two Turbo or not to Turbo 2: 2003 Audi A6 2.7T v. 2002 Audi A6 4.2

Taking some of the elements of my previous Allroad Showdown and S4 versus A4 3.2 Avant Showdown, this morning I’ve got another turbo versus displacement showdown, this time amongst A6 sedans. For effectively the same package, these two sedans perform their task in very different ways. It was evident from the Allroad showdown that the manual trumped almost everything else, so as with the S4 versus A4 test both cars today are tiptronic. While that may be disappointing to some, these are both competent luxury sport sedans at a budget price. Let’s start with the 2.7T:

Wagon Week 10K Friday: Which Road would you take?

509

The C5 Audi Allroad was one of the better wagons Audi has brought over to the United States in recent memory. The car was available with initially only the 2.7 twin-turbo V6 out of the S4 and A6 2.7T, but later was also available with a 4.2 V8 making for a smooth operator. What differentiated the Allroad from the S6 was a neat package; out of the box, these cars came with height adjustable air suspension that made for both impressive ground clearance and sporty handling in the twisties. Today I’ve cooked up an interesting comparison between the two more desirable versions of the car; the 2.7T mated to the 6 speed manual and the V8 4.2 model. Let’s start with the manual:

Tale of two Audis: 2000 A4 1.8T Quattro Avant and and 2000 A6 2.7T 6 Speed

509

We feature a fair amount of “S” versions of Audis, but there are some great options if you’re not looking for the flash or repair bills of the bigger brother models. In some cases, I really think these models will be collectable or at very least sought after in the future. They’re also a stark reminder of what we’ve lost in the past decade, because in their own way each of these cars has been discontinued in the United States by Audi. Today we’ll look at the last of the manual A6s, a C5 2.7T A6 Quattro 6 speed and a reminder to when Audi imported small wagons with a B5 1.8T Quattro Avant 5 speed. They’re also stellar deals below $6,000. Let’s start with the 6 speed sedan:

2000 AUDI A6 QUATTRO! 2.7T, AWD, 6 SPEED, MANUAL, SPORT, MUST SEE!

This car strikes me as a great deal and fairly undervalued. At $5,000, this is a lot of car, effectively a S4 in a more dignified suit. The 6 speed manual A6s are a joy to drive and really the last of the breed, as the manual option was completely discontinued in the U.S. after this model. With nearly 130,000 miles I’d expect some repairs in the future, but even given a healthy repair budget this car still is a lot of value for the money. $5,000 would get you into an S4, but that car would likely have close to 200,000 or more miles and throws a very different vibe than the A6. As I said in previous posts, this car is really the spiritual successor to the much-loved C4 S4/S6 and deserves more respect than the market gives it.…

2002 Audi S6 Avant 6-speed

The other day I wrote up a questionably modified 2JZ-GTE swapped M5 that, while it wasn’t to everyone’s taste, had clearly undergone some pricey modifications. Well, today we have another rare ride that has gone under the knife for a pricey swap few engage in. While C5 S6 and RS6s came to the U.S. in automatic-only format, the seller of this 2002 S6 Avant has ripped out the ZF unit and swapped in a O1E 6 speed. The addition of the 6 speed to either an S6 or S8 on these shores sure makes the choice of which fast executive car to buy more complicated! While some of the other mods may not be to your liking, let’s see if we can redeem it a bit:

V8 Week: 2003 Audi RS6

In the rarefied world of German super-sedans, the launch of the Audi C5 RS6 took the category to a new level. With 450 turbocharged horsepower on tap, this was a super car in disguise capable of destroying the competition in stoplight drag races and high-speed Autobahn blasts while offering comfort for 4 people and being useable year-round in any weather event. Try that with your Lamborghini, Ferrari, or even pre-Panamera Porsche. Like most super-sedans, once the warranty was up the residual value fell quicker than the massive brakes could haul it down from speed, and now these beasts can be had in prime condition for not much money. Today’s 2003 example looks particularly stealthy in popular Ebony Black:

My 2003 Audi RS6 MTM is for sale. I am the third owner and have owned the RS6 for about 3 years. This car was a present from me to me and was appreciated more as a piece of art than a form of transportation. That would explain the low miles I’ve put on it during our time together (about 4,000 miles). All previous owners are from around Tampa Bay area.

When it comes to maintaining my baby, expenses are never spared, as I like to keep all of my vehicles in immaculate condition. My Ebony Black RS6 is fully loaded with every possible option including:

· Ebony Black interior with

· Alcantara® and

· Carbon Fiber

· Navigation

· Satellite Radio

· Sport Exhaust with Black Tips

· Cold Weather package with

· Solar Sunroof

Additionally, my precious RS6 had some work done by the MTM go-to-guys, Hoppen Motorsport in Sarasota, FL.

2001 Audi A6 2.7T quattro

We don’t often speak about future collectables at GCFSB, as it’s usually hard to tell what will end up there. This car, however, is one that I think will probably end up being more of a cult-classic than it is currently – the short lived A6 2.7 Twin Turbo 6 speed. Like it’s little-brother-with-a-bigger-attitude S4, the silky smooth yet potent V6 mated to a manual made for an entertaining sports sedan and the spiritual successor to the C4 S4/S6. In the U.S., the C5 S6 was V8 and automatic only; the RS6 was V8 and automatic only, and while you could get the V6 TT 6 speed in the Allroad, not everyone wants to float on air (*or not) in a wagon. Flying lower on the radar, like most Audis from this generation depreciation took its toll quickly and many of these were snapped up second hand and not maintained. Thus, it has become rare to see one of the 6 speed A6s come up to market in good condition, but today’s example looks great in the classic Ming Blue:

Wagon Week: 2004 Audi RS6 MTM Avant

I’m just going to get this out of the way now: this is my favorite wagon. Ever. This is the cream of the Euro-only crop that I have lusted after for years. Even the RS6 sedan gets my heart racing when I see the big lower intakes and wide fenders rolling down the road, very similar to an A6 3.0 but just beefy enough to hint at the craziness going on under the hood. And as if the not-for-US-consumption RS6 Avant weren’t badass enough, this one has been tuned by Motoren Technik Mayer, one of the premier German tuning firms. These loonies made a double-engined TT Bimoto that went 232 mph. Yeah, um, resume accepted.

This grey beauty looks fantastic on stock Euro RS6 19″ wheels and has a “mild” tune of 500hp, while in Clubsport form MTM can make an earth-displacing 580hp and 598 lb-ft. A 200mph wagon? That’s what Wagon Week is all about. It’s for sale in Germany, but with €17,750 exchanging for roughly $23k, this is the steal heard ’round the world. See you guys later, I’m moving to Europe.

2004 Audi RS6 MTM Avant for sale on eBay Germany

Hello eBayers, I’m selling my super Audi RS6 Avant MTM. It has a power boost to 500 hp, but since that is not registered it can not be assigned, so I open it with the original 450 HP and top speed. The top speed is certainly there, as I have been briefly to 300 km/h. The Turbos run smoothly and the transmission shifts smoothly and cleanly. Thus it has more torque, but one should not make light kick downs.

Wagon Week: 2002 Audi S6 Avant

Before its notable run in the B6 and B7 S4s, Audi’s 4.2l 340hp V8 did a lot of its business in the S6. Until the arrival of the mental V10, I always found the S6 to be a bit underplayed compared with its S4 cousins. This does make it even more of a Q-ship though, equally at home steathily slicing up freeway lines as pounding up snowy mountains. Today’s S6 comes with a reasonable 83k miles and a litany of options including heated seats front and rear to keep the family warm at the ski resort or just to make you feel a little more comfy in traffic. Silver mirrors and some of my favorite wheels of all time suggest the power to those who know, but mostly this is a great way to have some hidden fun in an eminently useful wagon.

2002 Audi S6

A wolf in sheeps clothing, the 2002 Audi S6 looks like your every day family hauler. A closer look reveals wider fenders, aero lower door blades, brushed aluminum treatments and larger Avus wheels. Now there’s no mistaking what this car truly is, a hot rod.

One of the last years for S6 Avants, the C5 was the highest evolution of the breed. With more output from the 4.2L V8 (340 bhp and 310 lb/ft) along with the aesthetic upgrades, the S6 went on a diet. With all aluminum suspension, fenders and hood, the S6 stays just a touch heavier than the standard V6 A6 Avant. The S6 could make the run to 60 in 6.5 seconds. No small feat for a car weighing 2 tons.

All the performance certainly comes at a cost. The S6’s achilles heel is the 5-speed tiptronic slushbox, notorious for being one of the worst gearboxes Audi ever coupled to its 4.2. The shifting is vague at best and these gearboxes tend to have valve body issues. This grey over ecru S6 for sale in New Hampshire has the potential to be a great daily driver…with a kick.
