The letter Q in this company has being a lucky star and almost a separate trademark as far as it turned out crazy popular notwithstanding its high price.
Practically this model could have faced the market in 2013, but the developers decided to wait and present it in 2016 alongside with first generation of Q5. Such postponing was necessary to make a no-hurry re-skin and apply a profound improvement. So, it is coming together with the second generation of Q5. The flagship is assembled in Mexico. It will be a smaller coupe version of the large Q7 crossover.

The officials has proved that will be two model variations – S and RS. There will also be available a more powerful components version with advanced equipment following the newest technological trends.

The rumors speculate that the flagship might come up with the lower roofline, more crooked windshield, and lower clearance. Large radiator grille is so typical for Audi cars will also be present here alongside with narrow headlight clusters. The rear bumper may have a redesigned form. Most details will be assembled from modern and innovative materials. This should decrease the total weight of the car making it faster and more maneuver.
