Audi first revealed its newly developed concept car, the A9 Prologue, at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. But what makes the Audi A9 Prologue Concept so special? Firstly, the production version of Audi A9 Prologue Concept will be the new flagship product for the German car maker. Moreover, the A9 Prologue concept defines the future design language of the product line up from Audi. Now most of the concepts never make it to the tarmac but Audi did allow the media to take the A9 Prologue Concept for a spin and understand the vehicle even better. Here is the video from AUTO BILD TV that showcases the concept car in action.

The front fascia comprises of a newly designed grille and LED lights which give the A9 Prologue Concept a very futuristic look. Power to the Audi A9 Prologue Concept is provided by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that is already found on a variety of Audi and Bentley cars. The 4.0-litre engine produces about 605bhp of power and 700Nm of torque. Power is be transmitted to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive technology. While the claimed 0-100km/h sprint stands at 3.7 seconds, the 20-inch carbon-ceramic brake discs take care of halting the A9 quite efficiently. Despite being bigger and packed with more technology wizardry than the A7, the new A9 will weigh even less thanks to heavy doses of carbon fibre and spaceframe construction.
