They’re on a roll at Audi! Believe it or not, the company could be giving its stunning Cross Cabriolet quattro the green light for production.
Auto Express can reveal that the amazing concept, which debuted at last week’s Los Angeles Motor Show, looks set to hit the roads as a drop-top version of the forthcoming Q5 SUV. It follows hot on the heels of the metroproject quattro, which previews the firm’s new A1 city car.
Brit Steve Lewis is design chief for Audi USA, which created the Cross Cabriolet. Speaking at the event, he said: “Such a vehicle has been talked about within Audi for quite some time, because nobody else has ever produced a cabriolet SUV before.
“If there is sufficient demand for around 5,000 units a year, this model could go into limited production, and arrive in showrooms around 2010.”
