Audi A6 teaser – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Audi has made no secret about its plan to become the world's largest luxury automaker by volume by 2015, but the Four-Ringed automaker can't take on BMW and Mercedes-Benz without new product. Over the past few years, Audi has been doing exactly that, launching new and revised models at a breakneck pace. The A5 and R8 were introduced in 2008, followed by the new A4, A8 and the soon-to-arrive A7. Meanwhile, the midsize A6 has soldered on mostly with little more than a refresh, though it has aged gracefully, beating far newer rivals from its main German rivals in a handful of key comparison tests.

That relative stagnancy changes for the 2012 model year with a completely new A6. We're sketchy on details to this point, but the newest Audi sedan is just beginning its striptease. Beyond the jump is a very curious sneak peak of the A6, with very blurry images that leave a lot to the imagination. All we can discern from the 23 seconds of smeared video are some interesting-looking blue LED lights and the fact that the unveiling will continue on December 1. Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself. You won't see anything truly revealing, but if you're a fan of the A6, that probably won't stop you from taking a peek.

      Looks like a A4, a A5, a A6, a A7, and an A8...

      Snore...like the rest of Audi's line-up... (Excluding the R8)

      My rents will get this car in Fall 2011, I'm excited to see it.

      Looks like a A4, a A5, a A6, a A7, and an A8...

      I like Audi, but why do all of their cars look exactly the same?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I don't know if it's the fact that I would never spend a ton of money on a luxury car, or the fact that every company is on the "viral" band wagon, or that this video has been "leaked" a mere 2 days before the announcement, but I couldn't care less about this.

        I had a 2001 A6 2.7 twin turbo and now I have a 2007 Civic Si

        and I loved the Audi more, The only reason I got rid of it was because of repair bill after repair bill, but If I had the money for a new one hell ya. I sure hope this doesn't look anything like the A7 crossing fingers

        lol, maybe you've driven an A6 recently in which case I totally feel you. yawn.

        +1

        Like there's any doubt what the A6 will look like! Remember when Audi was delivering progressive design? That was a long time ago.

      It's a nice vehicle. I've seen a camo'ed test version around where I work. Like most Audi's, it looks sharp.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed. I saw a camo'd one last weekend in Denver heading up towards the mountains. Didn't really look all that much different from the current one, but it was camo'd so maybe I was missing some important styling cues.

        Love the username btw, lol!
      • 4 Years Ago
      I hope it will look sharper and sportier than the current version. the bulky design just doesnt work for me
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed...the current A6 is a masterpiece of understatement, but a bit too boring.
      • 4 Years Ago
      No more teasing bring it on!!!
      • 4 Years Ago
      OOOO OOOO OOOOO A tease!!!!!

      I for one, find it condescending, arrogant and downright ridiculous when auto companies do the "tease" thing. The idea that treating me like a 5-year old will interest me in their product and get me to drool and ignore my responsibilities is insulting.

      When they have a real photo of the entire care wake me up. Until then, they can kiss my butt.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Sorry for the spelling error. I was to busy cleaning up my drool after looking at their tease photo.

      LOVE the A6. Especially the 4.2 V8. Classy, luxurious drive and can haul ass - not overwrought. Very excited for the new version, while it will be understated to appeal to the conservative A6 buyer I'm sure it will be handsome and modern.
