Audi TT Inspiration: the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept

As promised, here is the vehicle that allegedly foreshadows many design cues for the 2015 Audi TT: the Audi Allroad Shooting Brake Concept, shown at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Do those headlights look a little familiar? (Hint: check the TT sketches.)L1060018

The details are amazing – look how the line of the wheel arch meets the line rising out of the headlight. Good stuff.

The closest I could get to the interior. This car was mobbed by the media in Detroit!

 

I expect the TT’s roofline will be more rounded than the Allroad Shooting Brake, but expect a lot of these design elements to carry over to the TT. Jean Jennings interviewed Audi’s designers about the Allroad Shooting Brake: hear from the exterior designer here and the interior designer here.

Looking forward to seeing the new TT in the flesh…er, sheet metal.
