Detroit 2017: Audi To Unveil The Q8 Concept

Audi has something exciting to preview at the upcoming Detroit motor show. It's the new Q8 concept, slated to be their new range-topping SUV model. Details are few and far between, but from these few teaser images we get a rough idea of what Audi is aiming for. Interestingly enough, Audi says that some elements of the new Q8 were referenced from the old Audi Ur-quattro of the 1980s.

Flared overfenders and a wide C-pillar are borrowed from this classic, although whether they mesh well with the SUV form has yet to be seen. Release dates for the actual car in question are not firmed up, but Audi has mentioned that they will have a model launch in 2018 (likely to be the Q6), while their big model launch for 2019 is likely to by the Q8.
