What would an auto show be without Audi and its typically over-the-top stand? The brand known for growing its market share while putting out exquisite lunches to already beefy journalists has done it again with the official debut of the 2012 Audi A6.

And if you have had the chance to experience the 2011 A8 you'll notice right away, after getting a look at 001's in-depth photographs of the A6, that there is an immense likeness to Audi's flagship model. It's very clear that Audi's technology has begun its trickle-down effect.

Take note of the center console, which is loaded with MMI and the integrated touchpad. Although I thought the touchpad was gimmicky when I first saw it, I will admit after testing it in the 2011 A8, it is FANTASTIC when compared to the old MMI way of entering in characters. More on that in an upcoming review, promise.

Additionally, it looks like Audi will be beating BMW and Mercedes-Benz by producing a luxury hybrid midsize sedan first. Although plans are in the works at BMW, as can be seen from recent spy photos, Audi won this round.

To see the 2012 Audi A6 inside and out, take a look at the AWESOME photos down below. Hell, why even bother going to Detroit when 001 has your back?
