Thanks to WCF reader Divyam, we can bring you these images of the 2012 Audi A6 (C7).

Spied in California, the car is heavily camouflaged but it looks identical to previous prototypes. This means we can expect A1-inspired headlights, LED taillights, and a familiar profile.

Since the A6 is based on the A7 Sportback, engine options will likely include a 150 kW (201 hp / 204 PS) 2.8-liter FSI, a 220 kW (295 hp / 299 PS) supercharged 3.0-liter TFSI, and two 3.0-liter TDIs rated at 150 kW (201 hp / 204 PS) and 180 kW (241 hp / 245 PS). A V8 remains a strong possibility, but it remains unclear if it will be the outgoing 4.2-liter or the new 4.0-liter unit.

Look for the new A6 to debut sometime late next year.

Thanks Divyam!
