The real car, as seen on the turn table at the Detroit Auto Show (more
correctly called the North American International Auto Show), is indeed
"purposeful" looking.  I would suggest that if one likes the TT and the new
A6, one would very much like the Allroad concept car.  If you are not a fan of
the recent styling direction shown by Audi, you are unlikely to find this
allrad Allroad any more to your liking.  Personally, It's the sort of thing I
might be willing to pay real money for, if they were to upgrade it from the
currently shown 2.8L 5V 200 hp V6.

More information, and a download version of the press kit, is available at the
Audi AG web site.  I also picked up an Allroad CD ROM information disc which I
will peruse, posting any details that don't seem to be common knowledge from
the sources already mentioned.
