Minichamps Audi Pikes Peak Concept 2003 3

Minichamps Audi Pikes Peak OffRoad 2002 number 440013060 Scale: 1:43rd

 

This limited edition resin Minichamps model represents the Pikes Peak Quattro sporting concept study. This four-door 4+2-seat hatchback was first exhibited at the North American International Motor Show (January 5 to 20, 2003) in Detroit.

 

This impressive study for Audi was designed for all terrain driving. It takes its name from the 4,300 metres high Pikes Peak. This mountain rises abruptly out of the Colorado Plain of the Rocky Mountains. It can be seen from many miles away and is also called "America's Mountain".

 

To quote from Audi:

 

"This design study features generous curves, clearly defined outlines and muscular, taut surfaces of large area united in an architecture in which tranquil beauty and athletic tension create an intriguing contrast. The outer surfaces, accented with swage-lines and interesting panel gap patterns, add vitality to the styling.

 

To strengthen this impression, a bright "Polar Silver" metallic paint finish has been chosen. Although the Audi Pikes Peak Quattro conveys a strong impression of strength and security, it cannot be said to lack sporty elegance.

 

To summarise the Audi Pikes Peak Quattro is therefore more than another SUV: it unites the best characteristics of several different automobile worlds at the very highest level, to achieve a hitherto unattained level of overall harmony."
