Plus, with the flood of safety gear that the car comes with, like stop and go traffic assist, lane-keep assist, and enhanced night vision, drivers to enjoy the power without much apprehension (aside from speed limits).
Features standard to both trims include:

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Audi S6 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Note: All Audi S6 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
