UrS6 Avant: 1995 Audi S6 Wagon

If you are in the market for a 7 passenger family hauler, the S6 Avant might not be on the top of your list...heck it probably won't even make the list, but all 400 of the US bound C4 generation S6 Avants (typ 4A9) came with a small set of rear facing kid it should be on the list.  Power isn't spectacular with the original 2.2 liter inline-5 cylinder 20-valve engine that pushes out 227 horsepower and 240 ft-lbs of torque, but it isn't bad either. Find this 1995 Audi S6 Wagon offered for $5500 in Santa Clara, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

See a better way to drive black?


  1. Ugh, a 200k mile audi with electrical issues? Unless your a certified VW/Audi tech run away. I'm so done with VW/Audi. Great cars on paper, but lighting money on fire is just as entertaining as owning one.

  3. Somebody dumped some money into this. The recovered seats, CF trims(93 Sedan only), BB Turbo, 6 speed O1E with hardened gears(WTF?), high bias diff etc. all the go fast parts. I love this generation of S4/S6, especially the wagon but coming this far and giving up due to a ruff idle? It's a bad omen. This could easily be a 12-14k car on BAT fully sorted.

  4. My father had the sedan version of this car a few years older than this one (before it was rebadged the s6), until it met a truck going the other way in his lane head-on at a combined speed of 130 mph. He survived it, barely, which speaks to the crashworthiness of the series. I drove the car quite a bit before that, and the turbo 5 cylinder was a revelation, as was the chassis. I would love to have this car, but it needs to go to an Audi mechanic with the electrical issues it has.
