The two-door model features high ground clearance and is a crossover with a distinctly sporting slant, a car for all roads and tracks, for everyday driving and recreational use.

Audi says the show car is a systematic development of the Audi design language.

It combines a host of visual elements from future models with the Audi-typical allroad concept and independent 'Shooting Brake' body style.

Measuring 4.20 metres in length, the show car has a powerful road stance.

Precise and clearly drawn lines as well as geometric surfaces are combined to create a sculpted, clear design form. Audi goes on to say: "It is almost as if the outer skin of the two-door car has been modelled from a solid piece, from the single frame grille and striking side tornado line to the taut, coupé-like rear.

"The overhangs are short; the roofline is low and it ends in a strong C pillar. The pronounced horizontal body line and the large 19-inch wheels emphasise the impression of concentrated energy."
