However not all are aware about Audi's announcement, and to get the word out effectively and enlighten Facebook fans, Audi's using the trend #TheNextAudi and some teaser graphics to start proceedings.

Audi's social media team has captioned the Audi S6 as a "sportscar from the engine to the exhaust but with the efficiency of a luxury car."

The S6 is a sporty Audi A6 that borrows its badness from a 4.0 litre V8 TFSI petrol engine rated at 420 bhp and 550 Nm. The 0-100kph time with the engine upgrade has reduced to 4.8 seconds.

The thirsty V8's fuel efficiency is contained by the “Cylinder On Demand” technology that operates it like a four-cylinder engine in part load conditions. A 7-speed S Tronic DSG transmission transfers power on to the road with assistance from the quattro all-wheel drive system for maximum traction. Carbon ceramic disc brakes and a sport differential are optional extras.

The S6 would be a CBU model as it would attract limited interest in a diesel-driven saloon segment.

Externally, the Audi S6 is identified by an aluminium tipped single-frame grille and chromed horizontal double bars. Exterior mirrors also bear the aluminum-look housings, and the side sills are shaped distinctively.

In addition, the S6 gets a trunk spoiler, a rear diffuser in platinum gray with an aluminum-look offset edge and chrome plated exhaust tips.
