Audi A6 2012 revealed, looks new yet old
The 2012 Audi A6 has made an early debut in pictures, and is supposedly a fully redesigned model. Good luck spotting the new model when it hits GCC streets in a year though, because it looks like designers spent about 2 seconds photoshopping bits of the 2010 A4 and the 2011 A8 onto the existing A6 to come up with this design.
Engines include a 204 hp 2.8-litre V6 with 280 Nm of torque, capable of 0-100 kph in an unlikely 7.7 seconds and a top speed of 240 kph; and a carryover 300 hp supercharged 3.0-litre V6 with 440 Nm of torque, supposedly good for 0-100 kph of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 250 kph; along with three diesel engines for the European market, with a 245 hp 2.0-litre hybrid engine coming later.
The 2012 Audi A6, after its physical debut early next year, should reach the UAE in a year’s time, if Audi adheres to their usual delay in launching products in this region.
