Audi S6 and Audi S8: Ready for launch!

Audi S8
Fourtitude is reporting that the Audi S6 and the Audi S8 are ready for launch!
Both of them will receive a V10 engine derived from Lamborghini and will have around 450 bhp.
The Audi A8 will be first shown at the Tokyo Motor Show and the Audi S6 will be unveiled at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, shortly after the beginning of the new year.
Audi has been rolling out new models in a steady pace, creating plenty of headlines and generating much interest in the brand. For the next phase of launches, the focus is now on performance. Undoubtedly a replacement TT and mid-engined sportscar based on the Le Mans concept (likely to be dubbed R9) will make a debut in 2006, but the move to performance starts long before that with the S8 bowing later this month and the S6 just after the first of the year.

It seems Audi is not only serious about bringing its S and RS models to market, they’re serious about the sub brands’ potential for North America. First with dealers getting a say in the S8, and now a worldwide launch in America, it seems Dr. Winterkorn wasn’t kidding when he named the U.S. with China as his top two targets for expanding the Audi brand.

Really great news about two great cars!
