Audi showcase its future


THE NEW Audi show car is making its debut in January 2014 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The two-door model with its high ground clearance is a crossover with a distinctly sporting slant - a car for all roads and tracks, for everyday driving and recreational use.

The show car is a systematic development of the Audi design language. It combines a host of visual elements from future models with the Audi-typical allroad concept and independent shooting-brake body style.

Measuring 4.2 metres in length, the show car has a powerful stance. Precise and clearly drawn lines as well as geometric surfaces are combined to create a sculpted, clear design form. It is almost as if the outer skin of the two-door car has been modelled from a solid piece, from the honeycomb-structured single-frame grille and striking side tornado line to the taut, coupé-like rear. The overhangs are short, the roof line is low and it ends in a strong C-pillar. The pronounced horizontal body line and large 19-inch wheels emphasise the impression of concentrated energy.

The characteristic allroad design features serve to seemingly contract its dimensions visually while also underscoring its off-road character. The aluminium underbody guards at the front and rear emphasise the width and protects the car off-road.

Design elements typical of e-tron models, such as the ribs in the grille and side air inlets, fit in harmoniously with the overall design concept. The dual headlights and grille indicate the further development of the quattro design language, which Audi already presented with its Sport quattro concept show car at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.
