Audi plans to bring the latest models as four-door luxury sedan that has dimensions larger than the current Audi A8.
The car, called A9, will use the A8 platform which is also likely to be used as the basis for the Lamborghini Estoque. Audi and Lamborghini will use the same basis to reduce development costs.
Nevertheless, the two models produced each brand will haveform brackish very different .
Platform A8 has a lightweight chassis structure but will be made in a longer form. And made with longitudinal Modular system architecture (MLB) produced specifically in the factory Audi.
When finished in production, A9 would become a competitor for the Porsche Panamera habit, and also Mercedes CL Benaz.
“Although the two cars must use the same chassis, However the machine must be different, because the Lamborghini Estoque uses the 5200 cc V10 engine taken from the Gallardo,” said Stephan Winkelmann.
