The 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show has a bit of everything. But, the emphasis is clearly shifting to new technology. Can the designs keep pace and fairly represent these new advances? Or, is the industry happy with the way things are?
Audi thinks the RS 6 Avant should be the superhero in the lineup. The body bulges and comes across like an Ironman triathlete, the Flash, and a pit bull all wrapped up in the skin of a handsome station wagon.
"... An ideal fit to lead the Genesis Advanced Design Studio, and his insight will be instrumental for the development of each of our upcoming projects including both advanced and production designs,” says Luc Donckerwolke, Chief Design Officer.
Cadillacs from the late 50s and early 60s are celebrated like steel and chrome gods from a bygone era. The CT6 has more in common with those, in terms of design, than the casual observer might think.
The front with its broad, upright Singleframe® grille, the flowing and muscular body design and the rear with its full-length strip of dynamic lighting, radiate the powerful presence of the new A8.
Audi is a leading and driving force in all technology areas relating to electronics and electrics. At CES in Las Vegas, the worlds most important electronics exhibition, Audi makes a splash with a host of new technologies. An Audi tablet as a multimedia control panel and simple wireless communication between your mobile devices and your car all demonstrate how diverse the future of the automobile is at Audi. All this and convenience, too: piloted parking and innovative Audi wireless charging (AWC) technology pave the way for electric mobility. A laser headlight shining ahead hundreds of feet and a car lapping the famous Hockenheim speedway at 240km/h (149.1mph) without a driver.
A few lucky Audi owners will step apart from the pack. The RS 5 Coupe Sport edition features 20’’ 5-V-spoke design wheels, red brake calipers and a Black and Crimson Red Fine Nappa leather interior. It's available in Daytona Gray and Nardo Gray as well as exclusive exterior colors. However, only 75 vehicles to be produced for the U.S. as part of Audi exclusive customization program.
