The Audi S6 facelift has returned in a new set of spy photos taken in Germany at the Nürburgring.

Audi’s Matrix LED headlights which debuted on the recently facelifted A8 range will find their way onto the A6 range which is set to receive a minor makeover that will also include subtle revisions to both front and rear bumpers. We don’t expect any other changes on the outside but the interior should take advantage of the latest technological goodies from Ingolstadt.

It's highly unlikely Audi will change the V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine but there could be a slight bump in power from the current 420 PS (309 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) output.

The Audi S6 facelift is programmed to come out before the end of the year.
