The chief designer of Audi do not mind the creation of a BMW 8 Series rivalJanuary 3, 2018
It is believed that if Audi decides to launch a premium coupe, it will be based on the current A8.
Audi proudly calls the newest representative sedan A8 one of the most technologically advanced cars in the world. However, the brand from Ingolstadt does not have a large coupe on its platform, unlike its competitors with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and the upcoming BMW 8 Series. Everything can change in the coming years, since the chief designer of Audi Mark Lichte, really, wants to see a luxury coupe with four rings on the logo.
According to Likhta, he is a big fan of two-door cars. He does not mind creating a large coupe, but he does not believe that in the coming years such cars will be able to bring profits to companies taking into account the costs of their development.
Given the recent rumors that Audi will soon abandon the R8, the release of the new two-door coupe definitely makes sense, even if it does not become a direct successor to the supercar. A concept on this topic has already been shown. They are Audi Prologue 2014. Even if the serial project receives a green light, its access to the market should not wait until 2020. In Audi, the primary tasks are the release of a new generation of the A6 sedan, plug-hybrid cross coupe Q8, the new compact hatchback A1 and crossover Q3.
Earlier, new details of the future electric version of the Audi Q2 L became known.
