Under the aluminium and carbon fibre skin of the Allroad Shooting Brake concept, Audi says there lurks a hybrid drivetrain with a total of 300kW of power and 650Nm of torque at its disposal. Powering the front wheels is a 215kW/380Nm 2-litre turbocharged engine with both direct and indirect injection, and a 40kW/270Nm electric motor integrated into the 6-speed dual clutch (sorry, e-S tronic) transmission. The rear wheels are powered by a separate 85kW/270Nm electric motor.

Both electric motors are hooked up to a 8.8kWh lithium ion battery pack that’s good for 50km (31mi) of electric-only driving. In EV mode only the rear motor is active, finally giving us a rear-wheel drive TT, and is good for a top speed of 130km/h. There’s also a hybrid mode that prioritises keeping the battery system topped up, and a sport mode that unleashes all the power sources, consequences be damned.

Weighing 1,600kg in total, the car is said to be able to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds and hit an electronically restricted top speed of 250km/h. Fuel economy is said to be a mind blowing 1.9L/100km under EU testing, with a total driving range of 820km (510mi). The Allroad Shooting Brake rides on 19-inch alloy wheels clad in 255/40 tyres.

The Allroad Shooting Brake concept features matrix LED headlights, first in the facelifted 4H Audi A8, that can block out specific areas of its beam in order not to dazzle other road users.
