Audi A9 envisioned with Aston Martin Lagonda design cues

Independent artist Theophilus Chin has digitally imagined the rumored Audi A9 concept with design cues from the 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda. Looking very sleek and elegant, the long four-door coupe has what it takes to sit on top of Audi’s range and surely not many would mind if the real product would look a lot like this but we all know it won’t happen.

The Audi A9 will reportedly be shown as a preview concept in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show while the production model is planned for a 2017 market launch. The concept should ride on the MLB platform and will pave the way for a new styling approach from Ingolstadt featuring a “highly technical look”.

It will allegedly have an aluminum body, laser headlights and a reworked single frame front grille while the production version is going to be offered with a rich array of engines, including a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo. Interestingly, there are also talks of an Audi S9 with a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo unleashing no less than 600 bhp (447 kW). We won’t be too surprised if there’s also going to be a plug-in hybrid derivate but probably not right away so it could come out sometime in 2018.
