Luxury motoring: Sporting S6 holds a mirror up to Audi A6 qualities
As formidable as the 420hp Audi S6 is, it serves to reinforce how good the regular A6 models are, writes Shane O'Donoghue.
The luxury car makers have quickly realised that there's a lot of money to be made from aligning their mainstream models with the specialised high-performance derivatives in terms of image. Clearly BMW sells far more 'M Sport' cars than it does the full-on M3, M5, M6, etc. Mercedes-Benz will allow you to have an AMG Sport kit with virtually any engine - and an F Sport badge on your Lexus doesn't mean any additional performance.
