Video: Can you drive an Audi A7 Sportback on the sand?

Audi’s famed Quattro all-wheel-drive system has won the company countless championships across many facets of automotive racing, and now the system has taken a two-tonne sedan through mountainous sand dunes in Dubai.

Audi released this promotional clip of its A7 Sportback cruising through the streets of Dubai, and then out of the city into the iconic sand dunes.

The sedan fairs quite well, managing to climb some seriously challenging terrain, while the driver remains in the comfort of Audi’s air-conditioned cabin and massaging leather seats.

To answer the original question though, yes. It looks like you can drive an Audi A7 on the sand.
