We wouldn’t blame you for laughing, but this is no joke. The Audi A7 Sportback quattro really did drive through the heart of the Arabian Desert. Even the sand-driving expert, owner of expedition company Offroad Zone Dubai and Audi’s guide, Ara Sahakian, couldn’t believe his ears. But this is the Audi A7 Sportback: it was made to do the impossible.
Driving out of Dubai city in the early morning sun, skyscrapers fade into the distance to be replaced by smooth golden sands. The tyres are deflated until they tread as softly as a camel’s hoof, and it is ready to put its quattro underpinnings to the ultimate test.
The A7 Sportback keeps its cool on the liquid surface, gripping as only it was made to do, the quattro technology proving every ounce of its worth. Golden powder is sent up in plumes that trail behind the A7 Sportback as the intensive acceleration gets to work, climbing higher and higher up the dunes until the desert stretches out in front.
Admiring the view from the top of the dunes, the A7 Sportback has achieved what only specially modified SUVs have been capable of. If it can do this, imagine how easy your drive to the office would be.
