Proving that good things really do come in pairs, the Audi A6 rounded up two high-status awards: "Doors & Closures Innovation Award" and "EuroCarBody Award." Both nods were bestowed upon the alluring sedan by the revered Automotive Circle International. In general, judges noted exceptional design and innovative development.
Starting off, the A6 was hand-picked for first prize in Doors & Closures based on its fully pressed aluminum doors. Using lighter material, Audi was able to get the doors' weight down by more than 20-kilograms. Thanks to extensive testing, the important vehicle parts not only offer a lighter load but provide durable protection. In addition, a double-shell construction is ideal for the integration of infotainment system components.
Claiming second prize in the EuroCarBody competition, the Audi A6 also displayed significantly reduced weight throughout the sedan's entire body. More specifically, upwards of 20-percent of the vehicle contains only the lightest yet strongest aluminum components. In a recent press release, Audi officials stated that "Materials such as high-end steels play a key role in the new Audi A6...form-hardened steels acquire their extreme strength as a result of a deliberate abrupt temperature change during the pressing process."1
Simply explaining the Audi A6 body doesn't do the experience of driving one justice. That's why Circle Audi invites you to stop by 1919 North Lakewood Boulevard Long Beach, CA 90815 to test one out in person. Of course, a high level of innovation and material consideration goes into producing every new Audi model.
