And while many car manufactures make such claims, Audi actually has a track record for doing just that. Earlier ICE Audi models like the first-generation Audi TT, the Pikes Peak concept that eventually became the Q7,...

Rain Prisk: Fantasy Audi Model Renders

words: Bill, renders: Rain Prisk While others may be familiar with Rain Prisk, I just stumbled across him (?) her (?) the other day with the above R8 render. Rain is a talented concept artist who makes renderings of vehicles that OEMs can visualize but will never put into production. Can you imagine if Audi decided to build a pickup truck? Rain did with this Q7 pickup. Finally a competitor to the Lincoln Mark LT! Like I said, fantasy builds. How about the electrification future of Audi? While ...
