Default Audi at the Auto Expo 2010!

Audi, right across the walkway from its sibling Skoda had a nice spread of its offerings for the Indian market on display.

One real eye-catcher, was the Audi Sportback Concept.

Having seen photos of this car earlier, i was expecting another one of those swoop-back saloons - and was not really looking forward to it at all. However, seeing this thing in person definitely changed my opinion about it.

The amount of design detailing and sensitivity that has gone into this car is quite evident, and though it might not be to everyones taste, theres no denying that this is one classy piece of work.

Another off-beat display car was the Audi 225 roadster, which seemed to get a place more in the view of the public than the sportback

Apologies for the lack of written content in this thread, but there aren't many new developments to report on the Audi front - so its just about showing off what they already have.

Nice Pics Rehaan.
Is the sportsback releasing in India? And the Transparent roof caught my eye, will it be the same for the production models?

The alloys on the A4 3.0 TDi Quattro looks fantastic. Wish it still has those wheels!!

Had seen Q7 a month back in flesh and blood, fell in love (sigh).
Every time i see one, feel like love sick child. (sigh)

The sportsback is equally stunning. It appears that it has an all in all
transparent roof. You don't have to say much to describe them.
Let the pics do the talking.
The attention to details is praiseworthy and true testament to German engineering.

Wish i could just testdrive one.
Q7 ( sigh).

The Audi Sportback looks stunning. The car's coupe-like roofline, B & C pillar areas are reminiscent of the Aston Martin Rapide.
