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.
Model: S6 Avant
Engine: 4.2 liter V8, 340hp

Rare S6 Avant. Heated front and rear seats. Seiden Nappa leather, all-wheel drive. Recent trade. Isn’t it time for an Audi?! How tempting is the awe-inspiring performance of this fire-breathing 2002 Audi S6? This sultry S6, with its grippy AWD, will handle anything mother nature decides to throw at you during one of her bad days at work. J.D. Power and Associates gave the 2002 S6 4 out of 5 Power Circles for Overall Performance and Design.
If an S4 is too small for you but you love the looks and speed, maybe the S6 is what you’ve been looking for. Clean with reasonable miles and a good price, this is a wagon that checks all the boxes.
