2012 Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng

At Auto China 2012 in Beijing, Audi is presenting two themed vehicles based on the Q3 – the Q3 jinlong yufeng and the RS Q3 concept. Both cars interpret the character of the compact SÚV, which will launch on the Chinese market this year, in a very special way – the one is recreationally oriented and rugged while the other was systematically designed for dynamic performance.

2012 is the Chinese year of the dragon. Jinlong yufeng means 'Golden Dragon in the Wind.' In this way, jinlong yufeng fits in wîth the character of the themed vehicle. It follows the Detroit showcar and the RS Q3 concept as another variant of the compact Audi Q3 SÚV and is based on the trendy and fast-moving sport of kitesurfing, in which the objective is to fearlessly control the power of the wind.

Mounted to the roof of the Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng are two kiteboards made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP). The designers developed a flat outdoor pouch as a special cargo floor liner. It not only provides protection against dirt, but can also be used to stow wet beach articles or can even be used as a sun umbrella or a seat cover. The kite itself can be stowed in a kite pouch, which was also specially designed for this themed vehicle. Two rugged and compact fun sport cameras known as 'Audi Cams' are stored in the left side wall of the cargo space.

The images are transmitted to the car via a strong WLAN router connection. From there, they can be sent wîth Bluetooth car phone online to any receiver via ÚMTS – a new unconventional idea within the range of features of Audi connect.

Zest for life and energy: the exterior
The Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng is an off-road vehicle for young, active sports enthusiasts. Its paint finish is Liuli Yellow, a luminous monochrome color that expresses a zest for life and high energy. The body add-on parts, many of which match those of the off-road package for production cars, are painted in matt quartz; this paint, built up from different gray pigments, has a natural look and is slightly rough to the touch. The high-gloss package adds small highlights around the windows.

Vertical aluminum struts in the single-frame radiator grille extend over its full height; they form a wave shape in the area where the logo appears on the production cars. The struts match the two-tone color scheme of the Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng: their sides are painted in a quartz color, while their front edges have a high-gloss finish. Certain areas inside the xenon plus headlights are tinted in anthracite, and aluminum panels cover the upper sections of the air intakes. The underbody guard protecting the engine is made of aluminum.

Flared wheel arches and brushed stainless steel running boards are prominent features on the sides of the Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng; these items will soon be added to the Q3 accessories program. The front cross-bar of the aluminum roof rail integrates small LED spotlights for illuminating the area around the car. The two flush tailpipes of the dual-branch exhaust system are integrated in the diffuser, which is partly made of aluminum – as is the rear underbody guard.

Yellow as contrasting color: the interior
Three colors dominate inside the themed vehicle, – black, gray and yellow. The roofliner consists of titanium gray Alcantara; many of the interior surfaces are black in color. The instrument panel is upholstered in black Fine Nappa leather and is decorated wîth yellow contrasting seams.

Fine aluminum accents glisten in the instrument cluster; cross-ribs and small fins give the dials and pointers a sculpted look. The leather-trimmed §teering wheel has contrasting yellow seams, and behind it there are two large shift paddles for control of the seven-speed S tronic. The sturdy foot rests and pedal set are made of stainless steel wîth rubber caps.

The seats are upholstered in woven leather – narrow strips of leather just a few tenths of a millimeter wide are interwoven wîth yarn. The material is accentuated by yellow piping and contrasting seams. The side panels of the seat cushions and seatbacks are bright in yellow Velvet leather – a material whose look is similar to that of nubuck leather, but wîth a finer grain. Yellow Velvet leather is also integrated in parts of the door trim panels.

2012 Audi Q3 jinlong yufengStainless steel mesh is used for decorative inlays. Other decorative panels in high-gloss black appear all around the instruments and in large areas of the center console and tunnel; display elements and controls appear to hover in front of them. The gear selection lever has an aluminum plate wîth the 'Q3' signature, and yellow seams decorate its shift boot.

High performance: the powertrain
The Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng employs a powerful engine. The 2.5 TFSI, a five-cylinder unit wîth direct injection and turbocharging, produces 228 kW (310 hp) from 2,480 cc engine displacement. The cylinder numbers are marked, and the valve cover is painted red. A cover panel conceals sections of the engine.

Power from the turbocharged five-cylinder engine flows to a seven-speed S tronic and then to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The Audi Q3 jinlong yufeng sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.5 seconds and can keep accelerating to a top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph).

The five-arm wheels are 8.5 J x 20 in size; their faces are machine-polished, while their sides are painted in matt quartz paint, similar in appearance to the single-frame grille. The off-road tires are 255/45. The front and rear track widths are 40 millimeters (1.57 inches) wider than those of the production version, while the ride height of the body is about 30 mm (1.18 inches) higher.
