Perhaps the most interesting part of the new S6 and S7 is the introduction of a diesel engine in Europe.

The other side of the pond will have access to a 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel V6 that puts out 349 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

It's not just a regular diesel engine, either -- it comes mated to an electric turbocharger and a 48-volt mild hybrid system.

The mild hybrid system allows the car's stop-start system to kick in around 14 miles per hour, further saving fuel.

The electric turbocharger, on the other hand, helps out the traditional exhaust-driven turbocharger by spinning up quickly to eliminate turbo lag and improve responsiveness.

As with previous S6 models, this new one looks fairly sportier than the more pedestrian A6.
