More Teaser Pics For The New Concept Audi

At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit Audi will exhibit a new crossover show car combining trademark allroad ground clearance and design elements with driving characteristics more akin to a sports car. They have published a couple more teaser images to go with the one we showed a couple of days ago. It will be interesting to see it in the flesh next month. Given the amount of pre-show publicity this concept is getting, Audi may well have high hopes.

Audi have issued this press release: “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 4.20 metres in length, the show car has a powerful road 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 Singleframe 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 the large 19-inch wheels emphasise the impression of concentrated energy.

The show car is a compelling blend of form and function. The characteristic allroad design features serve to seemingly contract its dimensions visually while also underscoring its off-road character. The aluminium underbody guards at front and rear emphasize the width and protect the car off road. Design elements that are typical of e-tron models, such as the ribs in the Singleframe grille and in the side air inlets, fit in harmoniously with the overall design concept.”
