Audi takes a tasty sip of the four-door coupe Kool-Aid

Audi doesn't have a lot of single digit model numbers left after the Paris debut of the 87, slotted more near the eight than the sixth. It's a big elegant four door coupe hatchback with skews the rather pudgy look at the Mercedes CLS or Porsche Panamera, has toughness more in line with an Aston repeat though not quite. We will see a supercharged V6 version right off the bat and almost certainly a V8 powered S version down the road all wheel drive will be an option of course; it mouthy, automatic gearbox or a seven speed dual clutch. Look for the latest in Audi's excellent MMI interface Bose audio at base and egregiously price to be a no audio rig optionally. Possible tech toys in the US could include a head up display and mobile Wi-Fi. Pricing starts at an equivalent of about $67,000 dollars in Europe. But that's pricing is still TBC for the US where it doesn't hit until mid 2011.
