The Audi A9, sometimes referred to as the Prologue, is one of the most highly anticipated cars of this year. The final rendition of the A9 will likely be a mix of the concept car, the Prologue and the Panamera.
Let’s take a look at what the industry rumors have to say about the A9.
Sneak peeks indicate the A9 will have an aggressive exterior appearance. It is suspected the distinctive Audi grill will be larger than those on current Audi models along with a distinctive headlight style to complement the new front. The A9 will sit on a Panamera chassis and Audi is pushing it to very closely match the specs and performance of the Panamera. 17” alloy wheels with an eye-popping wheel have also been spotted in previews. Because of the similarities to the Porsche Panamera, the A9 will probably be a 4-door coupe-ish body style that sits four.
There is nothing dramatic said to be planned for the A9. General consensus is that the interior will follow the traditional luxury expected from Audi. There certainly will be high-tech options likely ranging from drive assist features such as cruise control, satellite navigation to parking sensors and blind spot monitoring.
Under the Hood
The V6 model will boast a 3.0l TFSI (turbocharged fuel stratified injection) with an output of 300hp. The rumored V8 will be expected to produce 500hp. The release of the A9 is one tightly held secret. Rumors and speculation abound but most agree that Audi is aiming high with this car. They could assign a price tag of $150,000 and experts feel the car should be worth every penny based on what has been seen and heard about this car. When the Audi A9 finally makes its debut, if you are one of the lucky drivers that gets your hands on one of these beauties, you will want to make sure you protect it and take measures to ensure you enjoy your A9 for years to come. One way to do that is to purchase a high-quality car cover to protect your assets.
We're expecting a price tag of around one hundred and ten grand for the 2017 Audi A9. Pricing data will be more accessible as we approach the release date.
