The new Audi concept set to be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year will feature Level 5 autonomy, which means that the car will not require any human input to drive itself around. The fully autonomous car is a D segment car and uses four motors, one on each wheel, to propel itself around and features a range between 700 and 800 kilometers. The interior and exterior design of the concept is described by Audi as spectacular and groundbreaking.

Audi will also showcase another concept at Frankfurt along with the new Audi R8 GT, the new -rear-wheel drive variant of Audi's halo supercar which will rival its brother from another mother, the Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2. Audi will also take the covers of the RS4 Avant, the hot version of the A4 estate car.
