~ Audi A6 Quattro 3.0T ~ "My Dream Car"
***AFTER A FEW OFF DAYS WITH ME, THE A6 IS RINNG GREAT, LOOKING GREAT, AND IM EXCITED TOO GET IT BOOKED AND BACK IN ACTION!!! HAPPY TRAVELS!!! JP!!!!***
The completely redesigned Audi A6 sedan debuted in 2012, along side the Audi A7 (it's mechanically identical sister car). The design ran throughout the 2017 model year (before a 2018 redesign), and in that span won an unpresidented number of awards in the Auto industry, Including Automobile Magazines "Sports Luxury Sedan of the Year" award 4 separate times, besting distinguished rivals such as the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes Benz S Class, and the Lexus LS450.
In keeping my vehicle in pristine condition, the fact that my car is virtually indistinguishable from the most current models rolling off the lot (@ around $85k I might add...) does not miss me :)
Again one of many reasons that my Audi A6 3.0T, is my dream car...
But I digress...
With the appearance of the A6 sedan (and the A7 even), Audi, in my opinion, was first to nail the perfect balance of Luxury, Looks and Sports Car Performance.
Beginning up front with the now industry famous LEDs lights that flow back into the lines of the car, creating the illusion that the body was almost poured over the aggressive, wide body chassis, The A6 took the more traditional appearance, acheiving a more masculine and overall more complete finish, while the A7 with its chopped slanted fastback design struck some as cool at first, but we re yet to see if it will stand up to tests the time.
It remains a fiercely argued debate to this very day, among my great friend of mine & A7 owner, and I. I can only imagine the great pain & embarrassment he must feel, every time we cross in the parking lot, and I ultimately pull away, looking just a bit better, but alas...to each their own...
(haha love ya Tay!)
The Performance Package completes my A6, accented by the large performance brake pads in Brembo Red set in perfect contrast to the premuium Chrome Alloy Rims. and low pro tires.
This car is beautiful, you will get looks everywhere you go, no question. But that's not why this is my dream car.
Its the way this car performs that is the real story. Despite the 3.0T moniker, this 3.0 V6 is Supercharged, so its instant boost, skip the turbo-lag, resulting in 315+BHP & 0-60 in around 5 secs....
Add in Audis Quattro AWD system, pair it with an adjustable 8spd transmission that is not only silky smooth, but also provides instantaneous blips from steering wheel mounted paddles shifters, and dont be fooled. This car is an absolute rocket when called upon, and handling is simply unmatched when pushed. You feel glued to the road. Its a driving experience like none Ive ever had,
Yet in that same instance, you can slide the transmission & suspension back into comfort mode, and the A6 silently slips back into its total luxury persona. A showcase in Luxury German Autos. Amazing.
It is quite simply, a JOY to drive everyday. Have I mentioned this is my dream car??
Finally, I wanted to touch again on the Luxury portion of this Sports Luxury Sedan, and luckily, again Audi doesn't disappoint.
My personal favorite would definitely be the upgraded, 27 Speaker, Bang and Olufsen Stereo System - A nearly $7k upgrade from the factory. It is simply one if the best audio systems in a car I have ever heard. The interior is quite well appointed, every feature I can think of, culminating in a huge 8.5" LCD color display featuring Google Maps & Google Street View, as well as rearview camera, Bluetooth, DVD, on board 15GB Hard drive, USB and Memory Card Ports.
I know this description was probably a bit over the top, but I truly believe that my Audi A6 is as nice if not nicer than ANY other ride as any out there, and although I ask that you use caution and care while it is in your possession, I am quite sure you will be more than satisfied during your time behind the wheel, of my dream car.
It's a beautiful machine, please enjoy :)
