The 2012 Audi A6 first hit the Web last November, but pricing wasn't announced for the U.S. until this month. It arrives at dealers in just a few days now, and the sedan's configurator is live on the Audi USA website.
Nothing new or surprising is to be found in the configurator--though it's showing images of the European version for now--except for the possible grand total of a loaded up model. Start with the 3.0 TFSI Prestige model, throw the works at it, and you'll soon be closing in on $73,000.
We optioned up an A6 with a special Quartz Grey Metallic paint job ($475), the 20" sport wheel package ($2,300), Bang & Olufsen Advanced sound system ($5,900), the Innovation Package ($5,800), rear side airbags ($350) and tossed in some fine grain ash natural brown inlays for no charge. Grand total: $72,930 including the $875 destination fee. That's 171 percent of the base $42,525 2012 A6's price.
Go build up your ideal A6, and let us know how much it'll cost.
