Ever thought how cool would it be to travel around UAE in a convertible sports car that can accommodate around 8 people? Well, the Audi A3 XXL convertible featuring 6 doors and 8 seats could have fulfilled your dreams, but the automaker does not have plans to put this car for production.

This extraordinary convertible is basically built to give visitors a drive around the Audi’s Ingolstadt plant. It was designed using two standard Audi A3 convertibles that were stretched and fitted with 4 more doors. This allowed an addition of two more seating rows increasing the seating capacity to around 8 people. It features a rear wheel drive for better handling around tight corners. Audi has stated that this humongous convertible is not street legal yet, and is rather fit to be used as marketing of the regular Audi A3 convertible.

If you are interested about the regular 2016 Audi A3 convertible by looking at this 8 seater version, it is available in the US as a two door car equipped with a 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and starts at $36,525. The more powerful variant carrying a 2.0-liter turbo-four cylinder engine generates 220 horsepower and is available at a price tag of $39,525.
