A new model is called the A6G. The engine block is no longer in light alloy but in cast iron. It is based on the 6-cyl 2-litre engine of the 'A6GCS', but having been detuned by adjustments to the induction system, reduction of the compression ratio and decreasing the cubic capacity from 1979.7 cc to 1954.3 cc (its stroke is reduced by 1 mm).
