Just a couple of days ago, it was revealed that the next-generation Audi A8 will become the German firm’s first car to draw on the Audi Prologue Concept for design inspiration. Now a Teamspeed forum member has decided to render how the new Audi A8 could look using the Prologue as a base.
The most obvious difference between the new Audi A8 and the Prologue Concept will be the fact that the A8 has four doors rather than the Prologue’s two. Beyond that obvious change, the designer has maintained many of the design elements of the Audi Prologue into the new A8 with both the front and rear fascias appearing almost identical in this side-on image.
While recently discussing how the new Audi A8 will become the automaker’s first model to draw on the A8 for its design, Audi’s technical chief Ulrich Hackenberg said, “I gave Marc his first job of designing the new A8, and the Prologue concept is a trailer for that. This concept is the next step of Audi design. The new A8 will launch by the end of 2016.
“The next A6 and A7 will also have this look. In the A8, there will be a lot of features from the Prologue. The face and the interior in particular; I’m not a fan of concept cars that are too spectacular, so that’s why you’ll see so much of this design in the new cars.”
