Car and Driver magazine published the 3.7 second zero to sixty time. Audi based the advertisement off of that statement.

They don't say how many runs. I would assume that they published the fastest time. They did use launch control.

Here's the S6 review from May 2012:

http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...s6-test-review

They might of been questioned about the 0-60 time. They estimated when reporting on the S7 in May 2012.
"With help from the transmissionís launch-control function, we estimate the 0-to-60-mph sprint will take around four seconds, which is a considerable improvement from the A7ís 5.1-second time."

Here's the S7 review from May 2012:

http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...utobahn-page-2

Whatever the numbers are, both cars are fast.

Motor Trend tested the Audi S7 and they reported a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. It appears that both the S6 and S7 are posting significantly better 0-60 times than Audi initially quoted.

Audis are always under rated and BMWs are always over rated.

Take a look at this, for example, the S8
