The 2023 Audi S6 and S7 received the sharp-edged design version of the package

Adding an appearance package called Design Edition to the list of Audi options is dapping the S6 sedan and S7 fastback for the 2023 model year. It bundles several version-specific exterior accents and a sportier-looking interior, among other features.

Design version models can be ordered in a package-specific color called Arrow Gray (pictured), although buyers can choose from other options in the palette: Mithos Black Metallic, Tango Red Metallic and Floret Silver Metallic. However, ticking the “Design Edition” box adds liquid dark chrome exterior accents, bold matrix-designed LED headlights, bright black colors on the ceiling, and black symbols. Although it is not all blackened: red brake calipers are visible through 21-inch wheels whose design varies depending on the model selected.

Inside, the Design Edition package features Dynamica upholstery with red stitching, red seatbelt edges and gear selectors, lower center console and knee pads. Leather-upholstered front sports seat and an RS-style flat-bottom steering wheel are standard.

There are no mechanical changes, meaning both models are powered by a 2.9-liter V6 that relies on a pair of turbochargers and an electric-powered compressor (EPC) with 448-volt light hybrid system at 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. The six-cylinder rotates four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and Audi’s fixed quatro all-wheel-drive system.

Available exclusively for the 2023 model year, the Design Edition package costs 2,500. Audi will open the order book in June 2022.
