Mystery photo competition

OK, so I don't buy all the trade mags, or read the Sunday Times car supplements, so this car may be 'known'. I spotted it at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome in Leicestershire today (Weds 3rd Dec '03) and I thought it must be something special under the skin. So if you've seen it before, apologies.

Q) Whats under the skin of the 'unique' Audi A6?

So, post away, whats beneath the skin of this 'stretched' A6?

Nope, its not my A6 Quattro.

Notice the extra wide panel between the front and rear door, and the non-Audi Auto Gear selector.

The zetecinside bit is my website cool.gif

I was at Bruntingthorpe with the Fiesta, doing another photoshoot. Had an awesome time. Could have done with 4WD as it was very slippy in the wet. Recorded a 0-60 in 15.6s which aint bad for wet conditions (14.72 in the dry).

Oh, and the A6 in the pictures above is a Quattro, just not an Audi Quattro!

Any more guesses?

WTF??? EEK2.GIF

It's looking sick, that's 4 sure... crazy.gif Poor Audi!

In fact it looks shorter not longer IMO, look at that tiny rear door, that looks smaller no? confused.gif

So, no Ford, no 4wd, those wheels, fast... Did they stick an Audi body on a Vette perhaps? Guess it's someting like that... some Ami muscle?

Wait a minute..... What running gear does the Cayanne use?? Doesn't the exhaust look fairly similar?? confused.gif

I reckon its gotta be something big and off road......those wheels are 19"s apparently, and they look tiny, and the suspension is raised, he says its a quattro, which backs that up, and the scoop implies turbo to me, so its either a huge engined diesel, or a cayenne turbo.

Well you're all on the right theme.

Not a Diesel, nor an X5, but it is sitting rather high to get all the running gear underneath.

Performance is 0-60 in <5 seconds, and the engine is putting out 550 BHP.

No USA parts on the car, so its not a yank tank in disguise.

It could actually be shorter, the rear doors do look shortened don't they. I should have put my std A6 along side for comparison.

Any more guesses?

Another clue, stay on the 'Audi' theme....

Hmm... was a bit confused by "Could have done with 4WD as it was very slippy in the wet." and then: "Oh, and the A6 in the pictures above is a Quattro, just not an Audi Quattro!" confused.gif

So if it's 4wd a Touareg V8 or V10 maybe then?

The slippery issue was reference to his fiesta i believe.

Allroad Coupe then?? smashfreakB.gif

But that would be too easy, PLUS, it's too big isn't it?
