Audi Group is presenting two of its stunning high-performance vehicles at the Beijing auto show - the Audi Q7 exclusive concept V12 and R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro. These two new vehicles integrate a series of trendsetting designs and top technologies, reinterpreting the progressive, sophisticated and sporty genes in the blood.

Audi models stun with style and performance

Both the exterior and interior of the Q7 concept V12 are in a trendy white, a color popular on luxury yachts.

Audi Q7 concept V12

The Audi Q7 exclusive concept V12 combines the breathtaking power of a 12-cylinder turbo direct injection (TDI) engine and the elegant style of a luxury yacht.

A large part of the high-performance SUV's exterior and interior is bathed in a trendy white, a color popular on high-class yachts.

Under the hood of the V12 concept car resides a concentrated powerhouse: the V12 TDI - a 6-liter 12-cylinder diesel engine delivering 368kW of power and an impressive 1,000Nm torque between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm.

As a result, the vehicle performs like a world-class sports car - sprinting from zero to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.

The world's only 12-cylinder diesel engine in a passenger car uses just 11.9 liters of fuel per 100 km - a much better figure than comparable gasoline engines from competitors.

The unique engine is not the only factor to render it the ultimate high-performance SUV. Equally sporty are the vehicle's six-speed Tiptronic and quattro drive as well as running gear with adaptive air suspension.

Behind the large wheels are ceramic brake disks. A DVD navigation system, Bang & Olufsen advanced sound system and leather seats with electric heating and adjustment switches are manifestations of the concept car's ultimate luxury.
