With the Audi Q8 concept, we have created a new spearhead within our Q model line. Its design strongly evokes sportiness and prestige. 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. – Marc Lichte, Audi Head of Design
The striking front of AudiQ8 features the octagonal Singleframe which is considerably wider than that in Audi’s current production models. With the help of three-dimensional sculpting, it is moved well forward. Many design features of the Q8 concept are taking cues from the Audi Ur-quattro of the 1980s, like the extremely flat but very wide C-post, and the prominent, flared shoulders above the wheels. These balanced proportions give equal emphasis to the front and rear wheels – typically quattro. Although, no official statement has been released yet, but the new Audi Q8 sports utility vehicle is expected to get either a V6 or a V8 engine with both options for petrol and diesel for its production line.
