This is the Audi Q8 concept that just debuted at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Audi went as far as comparing the concept’s design to the ur-Quattro rally cars of the 1980s, and while that might be wishful thinking, they certainly didn’t cut corners coming up with aggressive angles. The close-to-production Q8 concept has all of them, evenly spread across its 16.5 feet of bodywork.
Inside, the concept has all the toys Audi has at the moment. Those luxurious leather seats are surrounded by an army of touch-sensitive surfaces, while all the necessary information is projected in front of the driver by a touch-sensitive heads-up display.
The users can control the most important functions via an integrated “black panel” between the seats, and the 12.3-inch TFT display of Audi’s brilliant virtual cockpit now has a resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels. As you’d expect, maps and performance needles are all displayed in 3D.
People of 2018, your sportier-looking, but slower and cheaper Bentley Bentayga is here, presented by Audi.
