The Exclusive Concept comes powered by the same twin-turbocharged V6 diesel engine found in the standard SQ5.
With a limited run of just 50 units, the Audi SQ5 TDI Exclusive Concept is sure to be a collector’s favorite. Based on the high-performance SQ5 shown earlier during the year, the limited edition model has been designed by Audi’s infamous Quattro division and will be shown at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.
All of the 50 examples will come painted in custom-made Aral blue crystal effect color shade with the wing mirrors particularly finished in aluminum like every other high-performance Audi models. Meanwhile on the inside, the cabin features black nappa leather upholstery with white trim inserts for the alcantara headlining, sunroof blind and door pads.
The Exclusive Concept is no different from the standard SQ5 when it comes to engine and drive-train configuration. It comes powered by the same twin-turbocharged 3-litre V6 engine which puts out 310PS of power and over 650Nm of torque, enough to propel the big crossover from 0-100kph in just about 5 seconds, beating the likes of Porsche Boxster S, BMW Z4 and Nissan 370Z. The engine is mated to an 8-speed triptonic gearbox which sends power to all four wheels through Quattro 4WD system.
With production slated to begin early next, the SQ5 Exclusive Edition will be available only in left-hand drive European countries with a price-tag of about Rs 65 lakh.
