2013 Audi S6 Avant spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

While crossovers dominate the American highway, that role is taken up overseas by estate wagons. And few are as enticing as the Audi S6 Avant.

Offering all the creature comforts of the Audi A6, the S6 Avant ups the ante with all the cargo space you'd expect in a crossover with a rip-roarin' engine under the hood. In the case of the new model, we're expecting an all-new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 driving some 450 horsepower to all four corners through an eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive.

In other words, that Porsche driver will never know what hit him, but with this latest batch of spy shots, we now do. It's the clearest look we've had at the upcoming new model yet, revealing the quad exhaust tips, full aero body kit, big-boy wheels and no cladding. All it needs are a set of S6 badges and it's off for a record-setting school run. Check it out in our high-res gallery for a closer look.

      This is awesome, but I'm still hoping for the 313hp twin-turbo diesel in the A6 Avant.

      Audi by far has one of the best designs out there, reliability is ok, customer service (dealer lever) is HORRIBLE at least in Los Angeles it is. Then try calling AoA - good luck with that - they forward your case to a next person and you have to tell what happened over and over and over again until you give up. eye candy, yes. would i own one again..NO

        The Audi dealer in Orlando is first class. I've absolutely loved going there. Their guys really take care of you and I have no complaints.
