Audi has released three new Black Edition models for their A6 and A7 model line, priced from £35,010 OTR to £56,785 OTR.
The Black Edition models feature rotor-design alloy wheels with a dark titanium finish and either a 20 inch diameter in the A6 Saloon and Avant or 21 inches in the A7 Sportback. The lowered sports suspension is a standard feature of the S line models on which the new specification is based. The darker side of all three models is also expressed by a black finish for the grille and number plate surrounds and the window frame strips, and by privacy glass extending from the B-pillar rearwards. The A6 Avant Black Edition is also equipped with black roof rails.
Inside, the cabin has Piano Black inlays which complement the sports seats upholstered in black Valcona leather and the black headlining. In A6 and A6 Avant models, the S line equipment list is also expanded by a BOSE surround sound system, DAB digital radio and the Audi Music Interface (AMI) for iPod connection. The A7 Sportback Black Edition gains the BOSE upgrade, and already features DAB radio and AMI as standard from SE specification and above.
In the A6 models the S line specification also brings features such as S line exterior and interior styling enhancements, satellite navigation, light and rain sensors, Xenon all-weather headlights and LED rear lights, the Audi drive select adaptive dynamics system, the Audi parking system plus and keyless go. On top of these, the A7 Sportback also includes extras such as powered tailgate operation, electrically adjustable front seats and a powered retractable rear spoiler.
The new Black Edition specification is linked to the 3.0 liter BiTDI unit with its 313hp and 650Nm of torque, which is available in all three ranges. The A6 range Black Edition specification is also available in combination with all engines from the 177hp 2.0 liter TDI upwards, excluding S6 models, and with either front-wheel-drive or quattro all-wheel-drive. In the A7 Sportback, you can get in all versions bar the front-wheel-drive 3.0 liter TDI 204hp and the S7 Sportback.
