Audi unveiled the Shooting Brake concept at the 2005 Tokyo
Motor Show. The Shooting Brake Concept is a design study
blending Audi's contemporary design with a sports car
infused with sense of spaciousness and functionality.
The Shooting Brake Concept is powered by a transverse
3.2 litre V6 borrowed from the top spec Audi A3 and Audi
TT models. Maximum power of 250 bhp is found at 6,200
rpm, and the torque peaks at 320 Nm between 2,500 and
3,000 rpm. Power is transferred to all 4 wheels through
a close ratio 6-speed gearbox. This gives the Audi Shooting
Brake concept a 0-60 mph time of just 6 seconds, and an
electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
Audi has also included some clever technology systems
in the Shooting Brake, these include an adaptive magnetic
damping system, an improved navigation system with touch
screen monitor and character recognition, and new LED
The Shooting Brake, like the Audi
Le Mans quattro super car concept, places the Audi
emblem is above the large central grille, and the Shooting
Brake's clearly defined wheel arches exaggerate the overall
muscular proportions of the car, similar to the arches
of the Audi TT.
The interior of the Audi Shooting Brake Concept - in typical
sports car fashion - is driver orientated and features
a low seating position and high centre console. The stubby
sports gear lever, sports
steering wheel and simple two-dial instrument cluster
adding to the effect.
