I can't believe it's that expensive. With the other options out there, you could find something much cheaper that is of equal quality.

Yeah it's ridiculous, nearly $2k. Good if you go camping often as it's just that one time investment for multiple uses. I won't be using it nearly enough to justify the cost.

Just because Audi makes great cars, doesn't mean that they can slap their name on a tent a charge $2k for it. They are selling the brand here, not selling a great camping tent. I'm sure someone will buy it though.

I agree.

Probably could find a tent just as good for far cheaper at some camping/outdoors store. Even better if you have to leave the camping site to drop by a local store or something since you're not attached to the tent.

Feeding into our disapproval of the Audi Tent, this is what one publication had to say:
Why is Audi building tents anyway?

It's the whole lifestyle thing. Audi customers - if you believe the adverts - spend at least half their waking hours on mountain bikes, kayaking or completing endurance marathons. So developing a concept tent is the marketing department's next way to convince us of the wholesome lifestyle nature of its Q cars.

Audi says the Q3 camping tent is rated for wind speeds of up to 40mph. So don't expect to take your Q3 on an Arctic adventure - but it should cope with a stiff Devon sea breeze.

Sadly, a UK spokesman said they have no plans to sell pop-up tents in showrooms just yet. 'It's just a concept at this stage,' he told us. 'We usually do zany things at Worthersee and this is one of those.'

It would be something nice for the kids but after seeing the price tag there is absolutely no way. Might be cheaper to make your own. or just get a regular tent and move away from the vehicle.

This is obviously a marketing ploy and partnership for Audi to advertise Q3's and for Heimplanet to advertise its tents. I don't believe Audi is building tents as the publication is titled.
