Earlier this summer, Audi unveiled the SQ5 TDI, a 308-hp Q5 carrying a very powerful diesel engine. Pricing for the Audi SQ5 comes in at a whopping €58,500 or $76,778 USD. Well, at the 2012 Paris Motor Show Audi will unveil something a little more exclusive known as the Audi SQ5 TDI Exclusive Concept.
The Exclusive Concept terminology doesn’t do anything to the mechanicals of the car. Only exterior and interior upgrades are made. On the outside the Audi SQ5 TDI Exclusive Concept features a Aral Blue crystal effect exterior finish, exterior mirrors are in aluminum look (like all S models) and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights are standard – that’s about it. On the inside, Audi adds a leather multifunction sports steering wheel and the gear lever gaiter in black Fine Nappa leather. There are also special black sport seats covered in Nappa leather, Alcantara headlining and open-pored veneer has been specially treated to emphasize the grain.
All those visual upgrades bring the pricing of the Audi SQ5 TDI Exclusive Concept to €92,000 or close to $121,000. Only 50 units will be produced and I’m pretty sure someone some where will buy them.
