Audi will launch a Q3 Vail concept car at the 2012 Detroit motor show next week.
Confirming the Q3 Vail for the Detroit show, Audi ceo Rupert Stadler said: 'We see opportunities in the SUV segment.'
Vail is a ski resort in Colorado.
It's rumoured that the Vail could be hybrid version of its Q3 SUV but to be honest I can't really find any info about it. Have to see what Audi show us next week!

The most extreme version of the Audi Q3 has been launched in Detroit. The Vail, a winter sport themed concept, is the most powerful version of the compact crossover so far, and to go with the flared arches and 20-inch wheels, engineers at Ingolstadt have slotted in a slightly tweaked version of the 2.5-litre 5-cylinder TFSI engine, as found in the RS3 and TT RS.This version of the highly regarded 5-pot is said to produce about 310bhp and 295lb ft, 15 less that the RS cars, but it is still enough to propel the Vail from 0-60 in 5.5 seconds, onto a top speed of 163mph.Winter sports is the theme that Audi have picked for this concept, and as well as the performance upgrades, it is fitted with a whole raft of equipment suited to skiing or snowboarding, including an aluminium underbody guard, heated load-bay mat, and roof-rails designed to hold winter sports equipment.Following the launch of the standard Q3 in the USA, this concept hints heavily at a production version of the high-powered Q3 for North America, and Europe, although there has so far been no official announcement.
