The S6 is now in its third generation, and the 2011 model is a carryover from the previous year. The S6 is known for the flowing curves of its design, as well as its distinctive grille and headlights.

The 2011 Audi S6 is available in a single trim, with various options, some of which are available at no extra cost.
