Ingolstadt, 10 October 2005 – Audi is unveiling the Shooting Brake Concept as their highlight for 2005 Tokyo Motor Show. With its 250 bhp engine and quattro permanent four-wheel drive, Audi says the Shooting Brake Concept produces a quality of road behaviour that in every respect lives up to its visual impact.
The new element for Audi is the upward swoop behind the rear side window which, together with the wide C-post, accentuates the prominent rear end. The Shooting Brake’s front end is characterised by the striking single-frame radiator grille and the dynamic cut of the clear-glass headlights give the face its decidedly forceful character.
As is typical of every Audi study car, in addition to its design qualities the Shooting Brake Concept features a raft of technical innovations for Tokyo. These include the adaptive damping system Audi magnetic ride, an evolutionary version of navigation system plus with touch screen monitor and character recognition, and the new LED headlight technology.
