Much of the hype was around the Audi Prologue concept, which is said to be the future of Audi design philosophy. And Audi maintained a lot of secrecy by releasing a couple of teaser images and videos. But after much ado, Audi has finally taken the wraps off the highly-anticipated Prologue concept, which some say, is the future A9, top of the line Audi.
The car is all about the style and design for the future Audis. Designers have been given a very sleek treatment to the profile of the car, with a single frame grille, positioned lower than the current Audi cars. The grille is very prominent, having a hexagonal shape, flanked by Matrix laser headlights, and aggressive air vents with diamond pattern inserts.
The car continues its sleek look to the rear with a large chrome slat on boot merging beautifully with the tail lights. The bumper is protruding with a three dimensional feel on the rear lights. The fenders are wide that houses 22-inch alloy wheels, with interesting diamond cut design. Interestingly, the concept doesn't have any door handles and will use electro-mechanics to operate the doors when touched.
On the interior part, though, the car seems to be from some other galaxy as it has a digital instrument cluster and numerous touchscreens for both the driver and the front passenger. The materials are top notch and include premium leather upholstery. The concept will come up with a “butler” which is designed to store the data of the driver and will identify the driver by their cell phone and then automatically adjusts the driver's seat, climate control system, radio and navigation system to their preferences.
Power is provided by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter TFSI V8 engine that develops 605 PS (445 kW) and 750 Nm (553lb-ft) of torque. The power is sent to all the four wheels via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission and a quattro all-wheel drive which enables the coupe to rocket from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds.
