2012 Audi A6, BMW 6 Series Coupe to Debut at Detroit Auto Show

With the grandeur of the Detroit Auto Show having been somewhat diminished over the past two years, luxury European automakers will look to bring back much of the show's wow-factor by unveiling important and beautiful new models. Included in that list are the production version of the BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept as well as the next-generation Audi A6.

The 6 Series Coupe will be nearly identical to the concept car shown at the Paris Auto Show with a 650 model making 400-hp from a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 (both rear drive and AWD will be available), while a 640i model will get a turbocharged six-cylinder with around 300-hp. The 6 Series Convertible is likely to debut first, however, at the LA Auto Show.

As for the new Audi, it will likely feature many of the styling cues found on the current A8, while also taking some design highlights from the more dramatic A7. No official engine info is yet known, but the 2012 A6 could come with a 272-hp version of the company's 2.0T engine, with a supercharged V6 also offered and possibly even a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 (which will later be shared with Bentley). Both an 8-speed automatic and 7-speed dual-clutch transmission are options, while Audi will offer its Audi Drive Select system that lets drivers choose between steering, throttle and suspension settings.
