Special Edition A6 Confirms White is the New Silver - (Australia)

May 9th, 2008



 

Audi Australia today announced the arrival of the limited release A6 “White Edition”. Just ten examples of this exclusive model will be available, offering the choice of either a petrol or diesel engine.

Confirming that white really is the new silver in fashionable automotive circles, the A6 White Edition 2.8 FSI multitronic features a powerful, yet light-in-weight engine with direct petrol injection and Audi valvelift system. This extremely efficient combustion process features Audi’s own FSI technology and provides dynamic responsiveness and agility across all engine speed ranges.  Pumping out 154 kW of power, this economical V6 engine produces 280 Nm of torque between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm. 

The A6 White Edition 2.8 FSI will sprint from 0 - 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds.  Combined fuel consumption on this model is 8.7 litres / 100km.

Mated to the 2.8-litre FSI engine is multitronic, Audi’s seamless continuously variable transmission with seven programmed levels and steering-wheel mounted buttons on the steering wheel to allow for fast and sporty gear changes.

The A6 White Edition 3.0 TDI features quattro permanent all-wheel drive and is fitted with the latest generation V6 diesel engine with Common Rail injection and exhaust turbo-charging.  Piezo injectors push the diesel fuel into the combustion chamber at up to 1600 bar with two parallel-flow charge-air intercoolers ensuring that power develops quickly and effectively. Every Audi TDI features a diesel particulate filter as standard.

The tiptronic transmission, standard on the 3.0 TDI quattro model, comes with Dynamic Shift Program and Sports program.  This 6-speed automatic makes sure torque is transformed into drive as smoothly and efficiently as possible.  Maximum torque of 450 Nm is delivered between a useable range of 1400 to 3250 rpm.

The 3.0-litre diesel engine delivers 171 kW of power and propels the car from 0 - 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds.  Fuel consumption is just 8.0 litres per 100 kilometres.

Audi Australia’s General Manager, Marketing, Immo Buschmann, said the A6 White Edition is a kind of ‘designer’ version of the A6, available in limited numbers worldwide.

“This special edition A6 highlights Audi’s strong focus on design, and the sophistication of the brand. The A6 model range offers very sporty variants like our special ‘Le Mans’ edition range and the soon-to-be-released RS 6, and now with the introduction of the White Edition, we are also demonstrating the superb quality and design of this model,” Mr Buschmann said.

The A6 White Edition model is available only in Ibis White with Black Milano leather upholstery.

Specification on both variants includes:

  • Audi Technik Package (Advanced Key, Audi Music Interface, Navigation system, Audi parking system ‘Advance’ with rear view camera, Bluetooth mobile phone preparation)
  • Sports Suspension
  • Electric glass sunroof
  • Privacy glass (tinted, darkened glass)
  • Audi quattro GmbH 19 inch double spoke alloy wheels
  • Audi Exclusive Black Package (the radiator grille surround is in a highly polished black finish, matt black radiator slats with licence plate surround also in matt black, highly polished black trim strips below the headlights and exterior window trimming in black)

Deliveries of the A6 White Edition commence later this month.
