Audi has released images of its new large SUV - the Q8 - due to be unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show next month.

Few details have been provided other than that the car is being pitched at the premium end of the SUV market. Audi says the car will be strongly reminiscent of the Audi Ur-quattro of the 1980's and will be spacious, with elegant and emotional styling.
