Designer Eric Kim, who works at Audi headquarters has created a racing car vision and gave it a name of Audi Airomorph.
The concept seems very aerodynamically and its aerodynamic base can be removed and replaced with sutable one for the race. We do not see any windows in this car, but maybe the driver will see everything via video camera.
With new Prologue concept Audi launched into a new design. Marc Lichte, Head of Design, gave the Audi brand a new styling direction in the large coupe.
The show car’s technology combines power, comfort and efficiency. The 4.0 TFSI produces up to 445 kW (605 hp) of power and 750 Nm (553.2 lb-ft) of torque; it accelerates the Audi prologue from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.7 seconds. Its dynamic all-wheel steering, in which the rear wheels can turn up to five degrees, makes the large couple extremely responsive and stable while driving.
The Audi Prologue is somewhat shorter and flatter than today’s production A8 with a length of 5.10 meters (16.7 ft), wheelbase of 2.94 meters (9.6 ft), width of 1.95 meters (6.4 ft) and height of 1.39 meters (4.6 ft).
Audi in 2015 year unveiled a Prologue Allroad concept, which has a hybrid drive. It's design language is the same as seen in Prologue Coupe or Prologue Avant.
This new concept has a hybrid drive. 4.0-liter V8 TFSI engine and electric motor, which is integrated into eight speed automatic transmission, generates 734 hp and 900 Nm of power.
The all-wheel drive car sprints from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, while the average average fuel consumption is only 2.4 l/100 km.
The Audi Q8 concept stands for maximum prestige and it combines the spaciousness typical of an SUV with the emotional lines of a coupe. Propulsion is provided by a powerful, yet highly efficient plug-in hybrid with 330 kW of system output and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of torque. The concept car was the basis for a production model that Audi launched on the market in 2018.
The combustion engine is a 3.0 TFSI producing 245 kW (333 hp) and a maximum of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) of torque. The electric motor generates 100 kW of power and 330 Nm (243.4 lb-ft). Together with a decoupler, it is integrated into the eight-speed tiptronic. The complete system produces 330 kW and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of torque.
The Audi Q8 concept accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). According to the standard applicable for plug-in hybrids, it consumes just 2.3 liters of fuel (102.3 US mpg) per 100 kilometers (62.1 mi) in the NEDC, corresponding to 53 grams CO2 per km (85.3 g/mi).
The lithium-ion battery located in the rear consists of 104 prismatic cells. With a capacity of 17.9 kWh, it enables an electric range of 60 kilometers (37.3 mi), and the total range with the TFSI engine is up to 1,000 kilometers (621.4 mi). A full charge with 7.2 kW output takes about two and a half hours.
