Audi has been one of the leaders of the auto industry for decades and their innovations have proven to be very useful for the whole industry, speaking primarily of the now ever-present Quattro system. Their cooperation with Heimplanet brought us the latest accessory for the Audi Q3 which makes this Quattro crossover even more practical. Yes, it’s a tent for the car.
Ok, a car tent is not as groundbreaking as the Quattro system, but it is very useful and practical. The tent is very easy to attach or detach from your Q3 and, more importantly, the assembly of the tent is easy and quick – it is said to last only seven minutes. Now, this number is not something we are easily inclined to believe, since many companies claim that setting up their tent is a piece of cake. They just omit to inform us that we need six hands, three sets of separated eyes and 4 years of experience to do it in their stated times, but Heimplanet and Audi are both serious companies and the tent manufacturer has developed several easy assembly systems and used it on their previous products, so the seven-minute margin could well be true.
Additionally, the tent is said to be able to withstand wind speeds of 43mph. Pay attention to the WIND speed – do not drive with the tent erected. [via]
