VW Group fans at the Wörthersee car show last week may have seen the future of sport utility vehicles: the Audi Q3 with built-in camping tent and kayak rack! The alpine lake called The Wörthersee and the town of Reifnitz in Carinthia, Austria, has hosted the world’s largest Volkswagen and Audi car show every May since 1981.
This year, the German concept design of an inflatable tent for the Q3 attracted a lot of attention. It doesn’t have to be pitched and the setup time from start to finish is 7 minutes. Once in place, reported Mihnea Radu of www.autoevolution.com, the tent will withstand winds of up to 70 km/h (43.5 mph).
