Audi’s maritime-inspired Q7 Coastline Concept

Audi’s maritime-inspired Q7 Coastline Concept

In addition to the regular production V12 TDI model, Audi will be presenting a new concept version of its range topping Q7 that takes its inspiration from the world's multimillion dollar mega-yachts. The new concept is labeled the Q7 Coastline and it features a unique pearl white finish that covers both the exterior and most of the cabin.

The Coastline is based on the production V12 TDI Q7, which means it gets the same widened wheel arches and new bumpers. In contrast to the production model, the casing for the exterior mirrors on the Coastline is white as well, and the single-frame radiator grill and the side air intake slots come in dark High Gloss Steel.

Inside, the cabin has been dressed up with embroidered floor mats made of fine wool, and pillar trim, roof lining, seat upholstery made of plush velvet and Valcona leather. Adding to the maritime theme is the aluminum highlights, brown leather piping on the seats and door inserts, American walnut veneer used on parts of the armrest, gearshift lever knob and the inner door sill, and dark smoked oak used for the floor of the luggage compartment and seat backs.

Under the hood is the same 500hp (368kW) V12 TDI diesel as the standard model, delivering peak torque of 1,000Nm (757.56 lb-ft) from between 1,750 and 3,000rpm. As a result, the vehicle sprints from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in just 5.5 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h (155mph).
