Audi - Avantissimo

Autumn 2001: Audi presented the Avant concept, that was already causing a stir in the midsize and upper class, in the luxury class. The Audi Avantissimo unites innovative technology, exceptionally spacious interior and elegant equipment in the emotional form of the Avant. A highlight at the 2001 IAA in Frankfurt.


Beautiful estate cars are called Avant. The Avantissimo concept study combines spatial comfort, elegance and efficient technology in a luxury vehicle.

The lively 8-cylinder twin turbo engine has a displacement of 4.2 litres and an output of 316 kW (430 bhp). Power is transmitted by a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Running gear

Aluminium running gear and air suspension ensure optimum handling and top-class aerodynamics. PAX wheels ensure safe driving despite loss of tyre pressure.


Luxury in combination with distinctive sportiness and the unmistakeable silhouette of an Avant conceal details such as clear-glass headlights and the glass roof area.


The luxurious interior provides superb seating comfort, elegant materials, an enormous load area with electrically operated floors and large glass surfaces.
