Audi A9 Coupe Planned as Mercedes CL Rival

Audi A9 Coupe Planned as Mercedes CL Rival

Rumors of a new uber sedan from Audi have been circulating for quite some time, badged as the A9 and slotting in above the brand’s current flagship model, the A8. According to a new report by Auto Bild, the A9 is getting the go-ahead, but it won’t be a 4-door. Instead, plans are to build an A9 Coupe, rivaling the likes of the Mercedes CL.

Similar power plants to those found in the A8 could be used, as could a new turbocharged V8 that Audi is working on.

Previous reports had suggested the A9 would be more of a CLS rival and retain 4-doors, with coupe-like styling, but this new info suggests and exciting direction for Audi, offering a vehicle that sits as a stepping-stone to the Bentley Continental GT.

If it does get the go-ahead, look for an A9 Coupe some time around 2014.
