AUDI Q8 CONCEPT PREMIERES IN DETROIT!
The near-production study blends the emotional styling of a coupé with SUV space and variability.
Audi have teased us with the preview of the near production-ready version of the upcoming Q8 SUV coupé.
Audi say the new Q8 ''represents a synthesis of the emotional styling of a coupé and the spaciousness that typifies an SUV, with all its variability.'' Many design elements of the Q8 concept are reminiscent of the Audi Ur-quattro of the 1980s. They include the extremely flat but very wide C-post, and the prominent, flared shoulders above the wheels.
“With the Audi Q8 concept, we have created a new spearhead within our Q model line. Its design strongly evokes sportiness and prestige,” declared Audi Head of Design Marc Lichte. “What’s more, we believe an important aspect of this showcar is that it offers a spacious interior with four equally comfortable seats, even with the flat roof line.”
What do you think of the new Q8? Have your say below. Personally, I really like the look and idea of the car and hopefully it will look as good in the flesh.
