  • New concept car will likely boast imposing dimensions, huge size
  • Luxury sedan concept car expected to be called A9

Audi has officially published a teaser image of an all-new concept car it will reveal later this month at the LA Auto Show. Likely dubbed the A9, the new concept car will show Audi's ideas on an upcoming luxury vehicle slotted above the already-pricey A8 sedan.

Although Audi's latest photo doesn't show much of the upcoming luxury sedan, it gives us a small preview of what it will look like. Specifically, the new concept car will feature Audi's traditional front end, along with a swept-back windshield and huge, imposing proportions -- likely growing to larger dimensions than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class or BMW 7 Series.

While Audi hasn't released any other details about the A9, luxury sedan enthusiasts can expect to see the sedan reach production sometime in the next few years. It will be Audi's answer to models like the Rolls-Royce Ghost, Bentley Flying Spur and a new Mercedes-Benz that's reported to slot above the S-Class and replace the now-defunct Maybach brand.

Said to be inspired by previous Audi models, such as the original A8 and a popular late-1980s race car dubbed the 90 quattro IMSA GTO, Audi's upcoming flagship sedan concept car will officially make its debut in less than two weeks. Check back for more updates, as we will be covering all the details when the sedan is officially unveiled at the LA Auto Show.

What it means to you: The latest Audi concept car likely previews an upcoming high-end luxury sedan designed to top even the A8 in Audi's lineup.
