Put a torquey 3.0-litre supercharged V6 power plant in a luxury-laden executive sedan and the result is an Audi A6 that both your enthusiast friends and mother would approve.

"Boys. All they care about is who's got the biggest engine."

This statement made by Nathalie Kelley in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift struck a chord when we drove Audi's latest A6 3.0 TFSI quattro S-tronic.

This range-topping A6 packs almost twice the power of its 1.8 TFSI Ultra S-tronic sibling and costs $114,100 (as of 12th October 2015) more than the latter. Aside from the obvious difference in power and drivetrain, how much more car are you really getting for the cost?

The A6's 'go-fast' looks are enhanced by aggressive 20-inch rims that are visually similar to those on the RS6 Avant

Up close and Personal

Being the most performance-oriented member of the A6 lineup, the car had to look the part and it does so with quattro GmbH's 'S line' kit. Like a RubberB strap on a Rolex Submariner, the kit beautifully adds a smidge of sportiness and emotional appeal to the otherwise business-looking A6.

The aggressiveness of the kit is complemented by the A6's futuristic head lights with Matrix LED technology - a suave feature that is standard across the A6 range.

Although subtle, the 'S line' comestic upgrades on the A6 give you an added reason to glance twice over your shoulder as you walk away from it.

A beautifully black interior is testament that black is and will always be the new black

In place of the wooden interior panels in the 1.8-litre variant we drove are sleek glossy black ones that remind you of the car's sporty proposition. To the left of the dashboard, a nicely-fitted quattro badge proudly reiterates that fact.

In this 3.0-litre A6, the front seats are equipped with integrated air-conditioning and the dash features a head-up display - pretty useful during spirited driving.
