Audi shows teaser image of all-new 2012 A6 model

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 8, 2010

Audi has released a teaser for the new-generation A6 vehicle that it is currently preparing to launch. With this vehicle, Audi is hoping that it will eventually gain some ground on the mid-size luxury segment which is currently dominated by the new models from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Audi’s teaser doesn’t show much as it is hiding under a sheet but it was confirmed that the new A6 will be built at the Neckarsulm site, which produces the A8, A8 L (long wheelbases version), R8 Spyder and A7 Sportback models.

Production of the new A6 will start by the end of the current year. The sedan is expected to arrive at the market early next year.

Instead of the Volkswagen Group C chassis, the new version will feature a MLB setup (Audi’s Modular Longitudinal Platform). There were some spyshots previously released that hint that the styling of the A6 will be more aggressive, especially its rear fascia. 

"2010 is the year of production starts for the Neckarsulm site: In addition to the Audi R8 Spyder, A8, A8 L and A7 Sportback, production of the new Audi A6 is also scheduled to start this year. 2010 – A year of production starts: Albrecht Reimold, Plant Manager Audi Neckarsulm, with the five models launched at the site: R8 Spyder, A8, A8L, A7 Sportback and one model still under wraps (A6 successor)" stated the press release.
