At this week’s L.A. Auto show, Audi unveiled its highly anticipated Prologue Concept, billed as the future of the company’s design language. Evidently the future has a face featuring a low-positioned wide-frame grille flanked by Matrix laser headlights, gloss black front spoilers and air vents with diamond pattern inserts. The massive body — nearly 17 feet long and six and a half feet wide — rides on similarly massive 22-inch wheels. The vehicle sports a number of high-tech features, including a digital instrument cluster and three OLED touchscreens for both the driver and the front passenger. A “butler” identifies the driver through the person’s cell phone, then automatically adjusts the driver’s seat, climate control system, radio and navigation system to personalized pre-sets. Power, meanwhile, comes courtesy of a twin-turbo 4.0-liter TFSI V8 engine, good for 605 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission and a Quattro all-wheel drive system, ultimately enabling a sprint time of 0 – 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds.
