Audi A4 Coupe coming out !!!

from Edmund's Inside Line:

"Audi Nuvolari Concept Will Become A4 Grand Tourer"

INGOLSTADT, Germany Audi's elegant Nuvolari 2+2 concept car, first shown at the Geneva motor show in 2003, will be built as a coupe version of the next-generation A4.

The decision completes a remarkable hat trick for the increasingly impressive brand all three concept cars shown in 2003 will be turned into production reality with only minimal changes. Audi has already announced the Pikes Peak off-roader concept will become the new Q7 SUV, and the midengine Le Mans supercar will also be built; according to Audi sources, it will be badged R9.

The Nuvolari, which looks like a big brother to the TT coupe, will form part of an expanded A4 range in two years, when the model is next changed. It will give Audi a direct rival to the BMW 3 Series coupe, something that has always been missing from the Audi lineup.

Audi sees the car as a classic Grand Tourer, but with a practical hatchback body style. But although the production A4 coupe will look like the Nuvolari, it will be a lot simpler the Nuvolari was an aluminum spaceframe design based on a scaled-down A8 platform; the A4 coupe will be more conventional.

What this means to you: Audi has the Midas touch at the moment while rival Mercedes is struggling, it's going from strength to strength.

interesting, and refreshing change from Audi.. they are going all out after BMW with the new approach in design , and who knows.. they may beat BMW at their own game for lineup versatility


Id love to test drive that thing in an S avatar
