"Pikes Peak" Production Version Bears the Name Q7

INGOLSTADT, Germany - The large sport utility vehicle (SÚV) that is to be built by the Audi brand will bear the name Q7.

This announcement was made at the Paris Motor Show by Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of AÚDI AG. "The letter Q denotes a new type family within our company, alongside A, S and RS. The 7 indicates that it is positioned between the A6 and A8," explained Prof. Winterkorn.

The Q7 will make its market debut at the start of 2006. The production version will be based on the Pikes Peak quattro concept study that Audi had unveiled at the 2003 Detroit Motor Show. In common with the latter, the five-door, seven-seater Q7 will combine the qualities of a fully-fledged off-road vehicle with the typical dynamism of an Audi high-performance sports saloon. The Audi SÚV will moreover offer an amount of space that sets new standards in its class.

2006 Audi Q7
Escorted by bodyguards like a superstar, it fulfilled its first official engagement in front of hundreds of media representatives: the Audi Q7, the prototype of a new SÚV generation, put in a surprise appearance at the 'quattro Night' on February 21, 2005 when it rolled onto the piazza of the Audi Forum in Ingolstadt.
A fitting highlight to celebrate the 25th anniversary of quattro permanent four-wheel drive: because together with the top athlete Audi RS4, the multi-talented Q7 with off-road capabilities symbolises the wide-ranging talents of quattro technology. Both superlative driveability on asphalt and optimum traction off the beaten track are characteristic features of the once-revolutionary drive concept that has since been installed on production models an incredible 1.8 million times.

The production version of the 'Pikes Peak quattro' study will appear on the market at the start of 2006 in the guise of the Audi Q7. High-performance petrol and TDI engines will then guarantee excellent road performance; quattro permanent four-wheel drive and the cutting-edge suspension will translate it into optimum grip and maximum driving pleasure on any terrain.

Úntil it makes its international exhibition debut at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, all further appearances of the Q7 will take place exclusively behind closed doors. Over the next few months, Q7 prototypes will be undergoing intensive tests in the toughest conditions imaginable, including in Arctic regions and burning deserts: proving grounds to guarantee a successful production launch.
