Audi SQ5 Exclusive – for when an SQ5 just isn’t enoughFri, 14 Sep 2012
Audi are debuting a limited edition of their new SQ5 – the SQ5 Exclusive – at Paris 2012 before a limited production run of 50 cars.
The new Audi SQ5 – a diesel RS Q5 in all but name – bowed in at Le Mans in June featuring the 3.0 litre twin turbo diesel V6 with 479lb/ft of torque, 309bhp and a very un-SUV 0-62mph of 5.1 seconds.
As the range-topping Q5 you would think that would be enough for Audi, but it seems they think there’s a market for an even more exclusive Audi SQ5 so they’re producing a limited edition model that’ll cost an extra £30k – the Audi SQ5 Exclusive.
The SQ5 Exclusive gets a bespoke Aral Blue crystal-effect paint job, lashings of Nappa leather with white stitching, woven leather inserts in the seats, Alcantara roof lining, natural grain Ash inlays and ‘Exclusive’ badges proliferating.
Audi are going to build just 50 examples of the SQ5 Exclusive starting in Q2 2013 and each will cost around £30k more than the regular SQ5 (which costs around £44k).
There are no plans to make RHD versions of the Audi SQ5 Exclusive.
