    Es-stating the obvious: Audi S6 Avant is the dream wagon we never got

    There are only two ways a third-generation Audi S6 Avant makes it to the U. This S6 Avant is the latter. The heart is an 82,mile, 5. One bit that stands out is the braking setup. The front has Porsche Cayenne rotors and calipers while the rear sits with stoppers from an S8. To make it all complete, the entire body was stripped down and repainted in Sepang Blue, a factory S6 color. Push the start button and the V monster fires to life with a chilling, mellifluous cold idle.

    Reality sets in that this is all happening in a station wagon, which is both absurd and awesome. Getting throttle steering, and brakes to mesh together is tougher than chewing cement. In this S6 Avant, the skinny pedal is an exception. Give it some juice and its engine roars a glorious note of 10 cylinders firing.

    Mash the accelerator pedal and the tachometer spins quickly as the pistons pump, pulling the white needle all the way to 7, rpm.

    The power swells and pushes passengers back into the seats around 3, rpm—boy, does this engine like to rev out. A real kick in the pants starts around 4, rpm and lasts until the next shift comes.

    This engine is now 11 years old, naturally aspirated, and technology sequential turbos has come a long way in making power feel more immediate in the rev band and staying flat until it drops off and the next shift fires off. Perhaps the most surprising part of this entire thing the V engine in a wagon notwithstanding is how heavy the steering is. The front is overly heavy—to be expected when a massive V is put in front of the front axle, Audi—and wants to push as the blue Avant goes around a corner with speed.

    Where it falls apart is the braking system. With a Porsche Cayenne setup up front and S8 setup in the rear, stopping power should be plentiful. But for as good as the rest of the Frankencar is, the braking system is where it falls apart. While actual stopping power is strong and present, the brake pedal feels wooden with zero bite.

    Pushing the brake pedal gives the impression of two pieces of wood being told to grab a steel rotor and come to a stop. It lives, in Portland, Oregon, among the Subarus, and that should be celebrated. Sign up to get the latest performance and luxury automotive news, delivered to your inbox daily!
