Audi has unveiled the Prologue concept, which previews the brand’s future design language. It’s been rumored that the Prologue concept is a preview of an upcoming Audi flagship, but Audi isn’t confirming those rumors.
The Prologue concept was designed by Audi’s new Head of Design, Marc Lichte. “Audi stands for sportiness, lightweight design and the quattro permanent all‑wheel drive,” Lichte stated. “In the Audi Prologue, we are expressing this know‑how in a new form – we have put the sportiest car in the luxury segment on wheels. Our team took new approaches in both exterior and interior design.”
Noteworthy details include a wider single frame grille that is positioned lower than today’s Audis. The headlights on the concept also feature Audi’s Matrix laser technology and aggressive air intakes flank the wider grille. As you move back the concept features sleek coupe styling with wide fenders that make room for the 22-inch alloy wheels.
Under the hood the Prologue concept is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 with 605 horsepower and 553 lb-ft. of torque. The Prologue concept reaches 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds.
