The Prologue by Audi (pictured) was arguably the most talked about new release from the Los Angeles motor show. It still looked like an Audi, but so much sleeker and nicer that people took notice and began to ask questions.
One of these questions was which car was it going to influence first, and now, courtesy of Autocar, we know. It will be the next A8, according to the firm’s technical chief, Ulrich Hackenberg.
He announced that the next-gen A8 would be the first ground-up design by the firm’s new design boss, March Lichte. “I gave Marc his first job of designing the new A8, and the Prologue concept is a trailer for that. This concept is the next step of Audi design. The new A8 will launch by the end of 2016.”
Hackenberg went on to say that the A6 and A7 would also get the look, but that the A8 would be the model closest to the motor show study.
And don’t think it’s just the exterior that’s serving as inspiration, because the inside is being modeled after the concept too.
