A trio of new teasers for Audi’s upcoming LA Auto Show concept have surfaced online, published by German paper Autobild this week.
Officially distributed imagery for the concept, now reported to be called ‘Prologue’, has so far included only a birds-eye view and a shadowy video.
These new leaked sketches, purported to be the real deal, offer a few new angles of what we could see in LA next week.
If authentic, the new sketches reveal that Audi’s big unveiling will be a new coupe model, expected to be known - if it reaches production - as the A9 Coupe.
Initial reports had pointed to a big four-door coupe that would somehow slot in above the already large A7 Sportback, but it appears clear now that Audi will aim its ultra-sharp Prologue concept at the curvaceous Mercedes S-Class Coupe.
Details remain thin on the ground, although Autobild claims the Prologue will come in at a massive 5.1 metres long, stretching well beyond the S-Class Coupe’s 5044mm length.
Audi itself has also described the concept as a preview of the brand’s latest styling direction, as defined by new design boss Marc Lichte.
Lichte’s previous work has included the Volkswagen Scirocco, the new Beetle and several generations of the Golf hatch.
Watch for more details to come next week.
