    Has the F10 5 series met its match? New A6 revealed, but with no V8?

    Audi has revealed the new A6 which borrows quite a few (more like all) styling cues from the A8. We aren't quite sure what to make of it yet as it seems similar yet different at the same time. We will leave the debate on styling up to you. A hybrid is shown here with a 2.0 TFSI motor paired with an electric. Currently two gasoline motors and three diesels are offered. A FWD model is also offered.

    To be honest, the F10 has hardly met its match as there are no really exciting powerplants offered yet. No V8 offered yet and no RS6 details. The supercharged motor from the new S4 is offered however at a 300 hp rating which hardly matches up to the BMW twin turbo V8's. Audi is focusing on fuel consumption touting that the new A6 range offers improves on fuel efficiency 16% from the previous generation. Audi, let us know when you when you roll out the RS6 and please bring it to the US this time.

    Audi's are nice, I would say too many electrical problems but look at how many problems 335's have had... I think 75 percent of audi's headlights are out, and I'm talking about new ones with the led strips

    I don't know about the problem or whatever I just want to see how this stacks up to the new 5 series and so far it is kind of disappointing.

    No 8 cylinder? Bland styling taken from the A8? FWD? Maybe I have to see it in person.

    Holy hell, Audi's interiors just keep getting better and better.

    I like the exterior too. Those all-led headlights are very nice.

    If they are offering the supercharged 3.0 in a non-S version. I am sure a V8 S6/RS6 are on the way.

    I hope so, twin turbo V10 would be nice too considering they did put in the development cost already...

    Is this design not fantastic? And look at that interior! They really raised the bar in this segment.

    The S6 and RS6 are going to be out of this world!

    The new design looks great, inside and out. Honestly, while I look forward to whatever comes for S/RS6 variants, it'd probably be great all 'rounder as a TDI with quattro.

    No doubt, it is well done I just wonder how it drives. The more I look at it the more it grows on me.

    Well it looks like Audi is tackling cutting weight with their cars. Great news.

    http://www.egmcartech.com/2010/12/03...-of-materials/

    The 2012 A6 2.0 TDI tips the scales at just 3,472 pounds. That is 3-series weight.

    Yes but I believe that is the FWD model.

    True, but if you look at the 535xi which weighs in at 4,233 pounds.

    I wonder how much weight the quattro and supercharged 3.0 will add onto that 3,472 pounds.
