A little torn on this.
On one hand, an off road sedan? Who is that for? I struggle with the whole safari overland cosplay aesthetic.
On the other, nicest thing I’ve seen from them in a long time. Simple, clean, elegant overall forms and I can see through the fussy details to the next A6.
I hope that tailgate feature makes it to production in a sedan like this though!

Some better renders:
I really think this tailgate would be nice… not so much for bikes for me, more like picking up a chair at the vintage shop or something
I don’t want to clean stuff like this…

The front looks like what I thought Audi should have been making instead of those huge vertical grilles.
Its beautiful in its own way.
Elegantly swept lines and aerodynamic I bet.
It does look a bit MadMax/Cyberpunk 2077 in some ways though.
A bit computer-gamey in some ways.
Perhaps the demographic is grown up gamers?
I have a hard time getting excited or upset about concepts in this vein. It was never meant to be representative of a real vehicle, so…sure. I guess it’s fun to draw and make models of imaginary cars
The only thing I will particularly champion here, though, is the tailgate (not necessarily the faux open-air truck bed aspect of it, just the tailgate.) Tailgates are amazingly useful for all kinds of stuff. Put tailgates on all the cars, please and thank you.

I feel the same about lift backs. All sedans and coupes should be lift backs in my opinion
add a little tailgate like this and it’s even better!

It looks like (a four-door) Rally Fighter …
… which was essentially a concept come to life in a 50 car production run. Maybe at some point there will be a business case for bigger manufacturers to batch produce high-fidelity concept cars.

Wow, blast from the past… was the Rally Fighter actually ahead of it’s time?
