Audi has previewed the first member of a new family of concept vehicles in Dubai at a private media event. The Audi Skysphere concept is the name of the electric-powered, two-door convertible based on the Audi design of tomorrow.
The concept car was the surprise showing during the event which also marked the regional previews of the new Audi A8 and S8 models and was displayed at the ‘Tomorrow Today’ exhibition at the Museum of the Future during the Holy Month of Ramadan. With it, the brand is illustrating its vision for the progressive luxury segment of the future, with features that include autonomous driving, a revolutionary interior and a seamless digital ecosystem.
With the touch of button, drivers of the Skysphere can either pilot their 4.94-metre-long e-roadster themselves in ‘Sports’ mode with a reduced wheelbase, while the rear-wheel steering ensures that the vehicle remains extremely agile despite its dimensions. They can also choose to be chauffeured around in a 5.19-metre GT in the autonomous ‘Grand Touring’ driving mode while enjoying the sky and the scenery, maximum legroom, and the services offered by a seamlessly integrated digital ecosystem.
