The Audi A9 Concept will have its debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Show. The new model is a grand four-door coupe which will surely make an impact on the automotive public. The new model is bold, futuristic and stunning. It is a tribute to all previous generations and a sure sign of the company’s modernization and improvement. The new model will be fascinating: it will be a flagship worthy its name. Not only will its appearance be amazing, it will also come with impressive performance and quality interior. The new Audi A9 is not only important as the new and modern Audi model: it also shows the buyers the future design and development of all Audi vehicles. Of course, we cannot vouch that every next car this manufacturer produces will be this stunning, but with the new head of design, Mr. Marc Lichte, it is close to being reality. The former is known for its impeccable taste and keep eye. The best example for that is his previous work, the VW Scirocco. The production version of the Audi A9 is scheduled for 2016, which means that the details about it should start unveiling soon.
Body And Platform
The Audi A9 Concept will use the same architecture as the new Audi A8. It will be the new MLB Evo platform, which will be slightly adjusted to the size of the new coupe. The new platform is very impressive. It is made out of lightweight materials, but it is at the same time strong enough to support the body of the new car. In addition, the new platform will reduce the coupe’s weight, and thus improve its performance, especially its agility, precision in steering and fuel efficiency. As for the exterior design, not much has been revealed about it at the moment, except for the teaser photo you can see here. Though the photo doesn’t reveal much about the future design, you can notice that the overall idea is a bit out of the ordinary. However, we are sure that the Audi A9 will be simply stunning, as it has a team of experts working on it. Also, another fact that makes us so sure of it is that this will be the new flagship for Audi, and as the competition becomes tougher and tougher, it would be foolish to make such a mistake and do this job poorly.
Audi A9 Concept Design
The Audi A9 Concept will have a somewhat unusual design. The new model will have a shooting-brake body, which is contrary to what most people expected. The majority of automotive fans thought that the new model will be elegant and sleek, like most cars these days, but it seems as they were wrong. The teaser image shows a different silhouette. This might suggest that the new model will be a completely new chapter in the Audi design diary. If this is the case, we must say we are impressed by the courage and the imagination. Instead of keeping to the well-known and proven design variations, the new designer team decided to think outside of the box and push the limits of the Audi capabilities. In addition, the new model will be very comfortable and roomy. It will be more than 200 inches long, which is impressive for a model its type. Also, we expect the new A9 to be very aggressive and dynamic. This body shape could also have an aerodynamic feature other than just an aesthetical one. It seems as though the manufacturer is playing with our imagination making us guess and anticipate the new coupe. However, all this will be over soon, once we see the premiere of the Audi A9 Concept. We are sure that we will not be disappointed.
