Audi’s newest creation, the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept, has been officially unveiled online, one day ahead of its public debut which has been scheduled for the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit.
Details on the model in question may have hit the web just a few days ago but the final product looks way more impressive. The Allroad Shooting Brake is a concept car which is part of the company’s plans of revamping its styling language. The vehicle has a conservative design and this basically means that the next generation of the TT will not go too far in this chapter.
Audi says that the new Allroad Shooting Brake Concept stands at 4,200 mm in length, 1,850 mm in width and 1,410 in height, riding on a 2,510 mm wheelbase. Thanks to the use of a combination between aluminum and CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic), the car is weighing a total of 1,600 kg (3,527 lbs). The concept is riding on 19-inch alloy wheels, which have been wrapped in 255/40 tires.
As far as the engine goes, you should know that Audi has fitted this model with a 2.0 liter TFSI four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline unit. This is producing 292 HP (215 kW) and it has a peak torque of 380 Nm (280 lb-ft). The engine is backed up by a disc-shaped electric motor which is adding an extra 54 HP (40 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque. This has been integrated in the e-S tronic 6-speed transmission.
