Audi, a leader in auto design, presented Q7 V12 TDI Coastline concept car at the popular Geneva Motor Show. The car combines the luxurious yacht style with the power of a 12-cylinder TDI engine. The interior of the high-performance SUV and a large portion of its exterior have a trendy white color. It is a high efficiency vehicle with a concentrated power that incorporates a 6-liter V12, and has the capability of yielding 500 hp (368 KW) of power. It’s not surprising why the Q7 V12 TDI Coastline has been touted as one of the strongest diesel engines in the world.
The vehicle comes bundled in Inuit, which is a special type of white color that emits an effect of pearl that resembles the luminous glitter of the polar region. Audi is the initiator of this trendy color a couple of years ago. This car reminds us of the white Shooting Brake Concept that made its entrance at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, and subsequently became a pace-setter.
Contrary to the Q7 V12 TDI production version, the Audi Q7 Coastline’s casing for the outside mirrors is white, the side air intake slots and its single-frame radiator grill are made of High Gloss Steel. The Coastline concept implements the same modifications of body as the production version, such as striking front and rear bumpers, and widened wheel arches that captivate onlookers.
Alabaster white color, which was popularized by luxurious yachts, dominates the trendy and stylish interior design of the concept vehicle. It also incorporates a white illuminating design in making the carpet, roof lining, pillar trim, floor mat embroidery made of fine wool, seatbelts, door trim, steering wheel, plush velvet and Valcona leather upholstered seat, and the cockpit front.
Aluminum elements on parts like door handles and air inlet nozzles set additional accents in the interior of the Audi Q7 V12 TDI Coastline concept car. It spots trendy finishes, such as its inclusion of the fine brown piping on the door and the instrument panel, as well as the nut brown piping on the seats. The inner door sill trims, the gearshift lever knob and some portions of the armrest are built using American walnut veneer. In turn thin strips made of dark smoked oak wood are embedded in the walnut veneer, giving it additional reference of maritime. The floor of the luggage compartment also includes this combination that contains two (2) integrated boxes. Instead of using varnishing, the concept uses waxed wood, which results to open pores in the wood that lend it a unique silky glow and charming feel.
The concept has a concentrated powerhouse that opens up a new chapter in diesel technology. The six-liter engine that draws from 5,934 cm3 of displacement yields an incredible 757.56 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque just between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm and 368 KW (500 hp) of power. This results to the car performing like a major sports car that impressively sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in as little as 5.5 seconds with top speed of 250 km/h, which is electronically limited.
