The Audi Shooting Brake, which was presented in late 2007 is a striking niche concept of the Germans. In mid 2009 Audi focuses on expanding the model range. The basis for a large coupé above the A5 was laid in 2007 with Nuvolari.
That driving enjoyment at the Shooting Brake comes first, make clear specifications: a 3.2 liter V6 with 250 hp and 320Nm, close ratio six-speed gearbox and Quattro all-wheel drive, the Shooting Brake launch in 6 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h. On a good handling car carries adaptive damping "Audi magnetic ride" a bit. Ceramic brakes provide a quick stop and also have a long life. Because they are much lighter than normal brakes, they reduce unsprung weight of the car.
Thick and dynamic appearance
The front gets prominent vertical slats with. The Shooting Brake was one of the first models was thus ornamented, currently also some sporty Audi's provided with such grille. The Audi Shooting Brake has thick, pronounced flanks and a rising waistline. Audi Shooting Brake has tried to give a dynamic appearance that conveys motion even when stationary. Measuring 4:18 x 1.84 x 1.35 m., The Shooting Brake slightly shorter, wider and lower than the A3 model year 2010.
Inside, the Shooting Brake is a true celebration of abbreviations: OLED, DVD, GPS, MMI, you name it, it's in there. In particular, OLED is worth mentioning: the new projection technique uses less energy than LCD, looks quieter and has a lower response time.
Production plans in 2009 still unknown
About the viability of the Audi Shooting Brake is speculation in 2009. In late 2008, Alfa Romeo presented the Mi.To. as opposed to the Mini Cooper. Perhaps with this Audi Shooting Brake has similar plans but on the other hand, he again S3 may be too much in the way.
Although introduced in 2008 Audi A5 smacks of the Nuvolari concept car, this concept car is more elevated in the market. Nuvolari is so with its 4.80 x 1.92 x 1:41 significantly more than the 4.64 x 1.85 x 1:37 of the A5. Also housed there under the hood of the Nuvolari a 5.0 twin-turbo V10 that produces 600 hp and 750 Nm. The S5 model year 2010 has to do with "only" 354 hp. Or an RS5 will come at the time of this publication not yet known, but it is unlikely that the 600 hp inherits. No, there are enough reasons to assume that the Nuvolari still has a chance. Thus the brand with this car rival BMW, which has the 6-Series, reply and also can serve the Nuvolari could be an alternative for people who find an Audi R8 too much of a good thing.
