S6 Plus had V8?

Anyone around know anything about the Europe only S6 "Plus" that Audi built in 1995? The standard S6 was running a turb-5 but I heard that the Plus version
had an early version of the 4.2 V8, I'm looking to confirm.

Yes there was a V8. Look at the ETKA sheets at http://www.exist.ru /

Actually, all models were available in Europe at the same time in 1996-97:
S6 2.2 T - 230 hp S6 4.2 - 290 hp S6 plus 4.2 - 326 hp
After the model change in -98 the 2.2T sadly died and the 4.2 V8 re-emerged as S6 4.2 - 300 hp and S6 plus 4.2 - 340 hp.

Interesting stuff. When the S6 emerged again in1998, I thought it was the first A6 range car with an 8, and I'd assumed that the A6 4.2 was the first non-S variant with an 8. Guess I was wrong! I wonder why they dumped the 2.2T, it had more power than the current 3.0 V6.

yes, but in the US you get your Audi's a lot cheaper than us Europeans ...
the grass is always greener on the other side I guess :)

EUR 12900 / 16% VAT (umsatzteuer ausweisbar - 'refundable') should give an export price of EUR 11120 = around USD 13300. But technical regulations may restrict private import to US from what I understand? Anyway I've heard that the 4.2 isn't exactly 'bulletproof'. I'd go with a 2.2T.

Cant get the link to work, even at 'tinyurl'. Sorry. The car can be found on www.mobile.de though.

God, at less than $14k I'd take it, and wouldn;t give a damn about reliability problems.
