2013 Audi S6 Commercial: 3.7 Seconds

The new Audi S6 is by no means the most powerful car that they’ve ever built, but with 420 hp coming from a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 it’s not exactly slow, and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque means it can really shift.
But how fast it, really? Well, Audi’s official press release said it could to 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds and achieve an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). But when Car&Driver magazine got a hold of the car, they managed to get it to do 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds.

That’s almost supercar-fast, and Audi is making sure everybody knows about this, launching a commercial called 3.7 Seconds. It’s not an Oscar winning performance, and we can’t shake the feeling that they’re acting smug about it.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
