    The new S6 will receive a 5.2 liters engine producing 440hp and 396 lbs/ft of torque. Initially a 6-speed Tiptronic transmission will be the only available choice but later comes the 7-speed DSG double clutch transmission.

    Whereas the new RS6 will be a 5.5 liter FSI V10 producing 550 hp and 413 lbs/ft of torque, due in 2008.

    I want an S6 Avant because I need more space than I have in my B6 S4 Avant and want a bigger fuel tank - there's an extra 17 litres in the A6.

    That said the price and residuals scare me. A reasonable spec on an A6 4.2Q Avant is a little over £50k so what of an S6? I guess I would have to keep it five years or so to average out the depreciation!

    PS Anyone know if it will be air suspension or not?
