Audi dealer reveals A6 special edition early, with more powerful 2.0 TDI engine and lower emissions

An Audi dealer has unwittingly revealed a new special edition of the A6 Avant. According to the website of Audi Northwest, the new model is called Audi A6 2.0 TDI Ultra Black Edition, and features a series of mechanical tweaks.

Audi A6 Avant review

Whereas the standard front-wheel drive A6 Avant 2.0 TDI produces 175bhp, the Ultra has been tuned to produce 190bhp. That drops the 0-62mph time from nine seconds to 8.7 seconds, while the top speed climbs 2mph to 140mph.

Despite the power hike, fuel economy and emissions are both improved, from 56.5mpg and 132g/km in the standard car to 61.4mpg and 119g/km in the Ultra - dropping road tax from £105 to £30 a year.

Priced at £37,010 for the Avant (it's not clear whether it will also be offered as a saloon), the Ultra comes well equipped with extras such as an S line bodykit, DAB radio and an electric tailgate as standard.
