From approximately 1997 to 2004, the Audi A6 was a mid-sized, executive sedan that came with a list of V-6 as well as some V-8 offerings.

The mid-power offering was the 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6 that made around 250 horsepower. The big boy in the line-up was the 4.2-liter V-8 that made a solid 300 horsepower.

Audi vehicles have always made nice interiors and the 3rd generation A6 only improved on this. Just like the exterior, the interior felt as well built and luxurious as the A8. In fact, you could say the car is nothing more than two-thirds of an A8. Due to the turnaround in 2005, the 3rd generation won the World Car of the Year award.
