2020 Audi S6 Sedan Gets Official Roof Rack, Vossen Wheels

The Audi S6 is easily among the most desirable sports sedans on sale in the United States, but with a few mods, it can be made even better. At least that is what the owner of this murdered-out S6 Sedan had in mind when he modified his car before giving it to friend and YouTuber Raiti’s Rides to review. A walkaround video gives us the chance to get acquainted with the sinister-looking S6.

The first order of business was to swap out the standard alloys the S6 Sedan came with, either the base 20-inch set or the 21-inch option. He decided to go big with a custom Vossen forged wheel set measuring 22 inches with multiple thin spokes to enhance the contrasting effect of the red “S” giant brake calipers.

While the 2020 Audi S6 originally comes with silver side mirror caps, they can be optionally had in glossy black provided the car is equipped with the Black Optic package. Not only does this car have the black mirrors, but even the window trim has received a dark finish. The pièce de résistance is a feature not everyone will like – the roof rack. Mind you, it’s an official Audi you can have on both the A6 and S6 sedans for $460. The bars come in silver as standard, but it looks like the owner had them painted to complete the all-black look of the car. The only thing missing? We’d argue are the tinted windows, which the car actually had before the owner decided to get rid of the black tint.

Unlike the European-spec S6 and its hugely controversial diesel engine, the North American variant has the twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 gasoline unit borrowed from the RS4 and RS5 models. The soundtrack it delivers through the quad exhaust is pretty decent, but the owner wants to tweak it to unlock more decibels.

The video goes on with a look inside the high-tech interior, which the reviewer finds to be borderline perfect, save for the silver glossy black accents that causes quite a lot of glare. The last part of the video focuses on the driving experience, with the man behind the wheel being particularly impressed by how balanced the chassis feels and the power delivery to the Quattro system.

While the return of the RS6 sedan would be nice, this video goes to show an S6 will probably suffice for the vast majority of people looking for a luxury sedan with performance chops.
