This week Audi and its subsidiary Lamborghini continued their rollout of even more concept cars and design studies at AutoChina 2012 in Beijing. Highlights included the Audi RS Q3 Concept, the Audi A6L e-tron Concept, , the Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng Design Study and the Lamborghini Urus crossover concept. . We've now run all PR materials on these new releases
We've just uploaded a comprehensive collection of photos from the 2012 North American International Auto Show. The mix includes the Audi Q3 Vail design study, the new updated Audi RS 5, S4, A4 allroad, A8 3.0 TFSI, A3 e-tron, R8 GT Spyder and more.
See them all via THIS LINK.
That it's now even more confirmed isn't much of a surprise given many of the major car magazines were able to test drive a prototype of the upcoming Q3 2.5 TFSI at the Q3 launch in Europe earlier this year. Still, proof is always nice and that's been reported by ETKA via audiblogpl.blogspot.com.
Okay, outwardly this Audi Q3 might not look particularly special. Sure, it's badged and kitted as an S-line and those B7 RS 4-design wheels painted black in the centers is interesting... but were you just see a photo of this car you might not be overly interested. Take a closer look though and things change just a bit.
First, our spy photographer sources shot this particular Audi Q3 at
Car & Driver European contributor Jens Meiners has posted his driving impression story from the Audi Q3 launch last week and we're impressed with the results. Mainstream magazines (a.k.a. buff books) like C&D are usually great for driving impressions and putting the car in the context of the industry, but geek knowledge such as chassis component sharing, chassis designations, engine codes, etc.
For those keeping track, the presence of quattro GmBh boss Stefan Reil at the Zurich launch of the Audi Q3 last week was a bit of a puzzler. The German executive was quoted in a story about the production determination of the quattro Concept for an article on Edmunds Inside Line, but also very interesting is why Audi's high performance boss would be at the launch of a 4-cylinder crossover.
Autoblog European contributor Matt Davis attended the Q3 launch last week and has penned his impressions of Audi's newest and (thus-far) smallest crossover. And while Q3 reviews aren't all that rare since the launch began in Zurich, Matt's caught our eye because it focuses on the S-line version and includes plenty of unique photos.
We love the S-line-trimmed steering wheel and those
At the same time European journalists are getting their first sample of the all-new Q3 in Switzerland and full production is beginning in Martorell, Spain, news is slipping out that the marque from Ingolstadt could be planning a potent RS version of the small crossover.
Power for the engine would come from the same 2.5 TFSI 5-cylinder found
As the Audi Q3 moves into production and distribution, Automobile Magazine's European contributor and usual suspect in our News & Rumors coverage Georg Kacher has filed an intel report on Ingolstadt's master plan toward crossover expansion. Turns out Q7, Q5 and now Q3 are only the beginning.
Here's a quick run-down.
quattro GmbH boss Stephan Reil once told us that Suzuka Grey was not a color he'd release for standard cars. That means it's reserved only for R8s and RS car pallets unless. Fortunately, for those willing to pay the premium, Audi's uber-cool almost-white metallic is available on any model thanks to Audi Exclusive ordering. Case in point is this Q3 S-line show car on display in Hamburg last week. The German Audi blog
