The Audi R8 GT arrives systematic having a six-speed autoloading orient gearbox that Audi has dubbed R tronic. It offers two reflexive settings along with a handbook mode with shifts activated through paddles some the controls or steady having a wink from the cogwheel tumbler.  Audi says the unit in the R8 GT can convert train inner a low as 100 milliseconds.

Audi A6

Like its predecessor, this car also has a long hood but it too has that typical chiseled from a single block of aluminium look. From the front, it looks like an Audi A8. However peer closely and you would notice that this car’s grille is almost transparent showing off the radiator. Another thing that you would notice is that all LED layout of the head lamps. the day time running lamps, even though I have seen them on many cars before, eerily have that “look at me attitude”. The air dams are small affairs but then they imbibe small fog lamps. Its low profile is also good as one of the Audi PR person said that the drag coefficient has been reduced from the 2011 model. Its 17 inch wheels fill the wheel arches completely so much so that it feels as if you fully load the car and the wheels would grind against the arches. The rear portion is nothing to talk about except for the twin tail pipe arrangement.
Familiar interiors like the 2011 model adorn the 2012 Audi A6. The best change that can be noticed is the sense of more space. Yes, the space has improved vastly inside. Instead of the tight fit that taller passengers would usually associate with an A6 earlier, the newer one promises not to dash a 6 footers knee into the front seats or on the dash board. Another feature which has improved is the fourth generation Multi Media Interface or as we know it, MMI. It now gets a touch pad which can recognize handwriting gestures, much like any of those touch screen phones that one can buy in the US market. This unique system had me intrigued and I am sure that it would catch the attention of many geeks as well. There is a navigation system which works wonderfully with a very good non reflective VGA display. For the internet savvy (which Audi A6 owner wouldn’t be), WiFi connectivity is available for 8 devices at a time. The seat comfort is also good. It isn’t as hard as a BMW’s seat and nor as soft as the Mercedes’s ones. It is a combination of both actually. The rear seats can accommodate 3 very comfortably and even if they are 6 footers. No mention of the boot space was made but then seeing it, I can guess that it can carry more than two suitcases and a couple of handbags as well.
Since it was 30 minutes wherein I got to be intimate with the car, the ride and handling parameter couldn’t be ascertained at a depth. But then knowing Audi A6 model from quite some time, I can say that both the departments would be well catered for. The ride for the short drive felt planted but a bit jiggly at low speeds but then its quality increased once I upped the speeds. As for the handling part, it does handle like an Audi should. The steering wheel is also pretty linear and direct in its application. Unlike a BMW, it isn’t heavy at low speeds but light and weighs up nicely once the stakes are upped. NVH is one of the lowest that I have ever heard off in a car. Very smooth and unobtrusive.

Engines options in the 2012 Audi A6 for US can only be speculated at this time. Two of those, I could get information about. One would be a 2.0 liter engine with 4 cylinders and having a power output of 211 Hp with torque figures of 258 pound feet. The other one is the 3.0 liter supercharged TFSI engine making 310 hp of power and 325 pound feet of torque. Needless to say, the former would be offered only in front wheel drive mode whereas the one that I drove has Audi’s Quattro system. Moreover, the former would get a CVT option whereas the V6 has got an eight speed auto transmission from ZF. This is a triptronic unit. Since it was a test drive, I couldn’t time the performance but can definitely tag it as effortless and the ZF transmission works wonders for this 3 liter unit. A diesel model as also a hybrid is expected to be on the cards by early 2013.

One gets all the usual parnaphelia associated with an Audi like all wheel disc brakes, ABS, ESP and EBD. Safety is been handled by 6 air bags, collapsible steering column and 3 point seat belts. Fuel efficiency would also be a guess as the EPA figures for the same aren’t out yet. The V6 that I drove is supposed to give 19 mpg in city and 28 mpg on the highway. Expect the 4 cylinder model to be a bit more frugal.
