Audi Nanuk

2013 proved to be a busy year for the poorly explored notion of off-road supercars. ItalDesign wheeled out its angular, Lamborghini-based Parcour concept at the Geneva show in the spring, and then Audi followed in its prodigious tracks with its V10 diesel-powered Nanuk concept, revealed at Frankfurt in the autumn.

More than coincidence was at work, of course, with ItalDesign having had a hand in both show cars.

Audi’s Nanuk provided an attention grabbing way to preview the form of the second-generation R8 sports car, which was unveiled 18 months later at the 2015 Geneva show.
