Both superlative driveability on asphalt and optimum traction off the beaten track are characteristic features of the once-revolutionary drive concept that has since been installed on production models an incredible 1.8 million times.<p>The production version of the "Pikes Peak quattro" study will appear on the market at the start of 2006 in the guise of the Audi Q7. High-performance petrol and TDI engines will then guarantee excellent road performance; quattro permanent four-wheel drive and the cutting-edge suspension will translate it into optimum grip and maximum driving pleasure on any terrain.<p>Until it makes its international exhibition debut at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, all further appearances of the Q7 will take place exclusively behind closed doors. Over the next few months, Q7 prototypes will be undergoing intensive tests in the toughest conditions imaginable, including in Arctic regions and burning deserts: proving grounds to guarantee a successful production launch.</TD></TR></TABLE><BR><BR>

woo woo this is actually an oficial pic? I would've thought it was a spy shot.<p>Doesn't look bad however, looks like MB and BMW better get convincing in that segment (I mean the new ML is bland and the X5 is... well, it's just an X5...)

It has the new fascia, it is just hidden by cladding.

Move over MB GST, Now there's something that looks a whole lot less awkward than your supposedly class defining GST. That Q7 looks killer, it just screams MEAN.............don't forget to expect the best interior you would ever see in an SUV, Audi has never disappointed in the area.
