… that just happens to also be a spacious and practical four-door hatchback.
Having this beautiful car to drive around Bahrain for a couple of days was a lot of fun. It manages to be super-fast, sexy, and practical all at the same time – inside and out.
Huge oval-shaped exhausts proudly indicate that this is a real sports car, and the sloping roofline adds to its aggressive exterior, but (thanks to this being a long car) without compromising the headroom of those seated in the rear allowing three adults to sit in the back with ease.
It comes with all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, adjustable air suspension system, and a top-class infotainment system. Safety features include 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring.
The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8, that’s paired with a 48-volt hybrid system, provides 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque enabling zero to 100kph in just 3.6 seconds. The sheer power of this car is simply awesome, though thanks to those brilliant Audi engineers everything works smoothly and is easily controlled by the driver.
A rear spoiler remains hidden beneath the tailgate until the car hits 120 kph. Of course, I didn’t see this in action as this is the very zenith of Bahrain’s speed limits… obviously!
The beautiful leather interior offers just about every comfort you could possibly require. Despite its sporting prowess I found this car to be as easy to drive as a standard Audi and in normal traffic it felt no different than being in a high-end luxury car… until you want to drive it like a Supercar!
NB. If you want to go crazy you can opt for the Black Optics package which has dark exterior trim and giant 22-inch wheels.
