2012 Audi A6 teaser video screencap
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.
