Audi has unveiled a massive Q7 snow sculpture in Austria.

Created over the course of five days, the sculpture was made at ski resort using chain saws, shovels and an assortment of other equipment. Despite a number difficulties, the end result is impressive as it's pretty faithful to the production model that was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show last month.

As a refresher, the 2015 Audi Q7 will be offered with a variety of engines including:

  • A 2.0 TFSI with 252 PS (185 kW) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 3.0-liter TFSI with 333 PS (245 kW) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 3.0-liter TDI with 218 PS (160 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 3.0-liter TDI with 272 PS (200 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque

There will also be a Q7 e-tron quattro plug-in hybrid which has a 3.0-liter TDI engine and an eight-speed tiptronic transmission with an integrated electric motor. This setup enables the crossover to produce a combined maximum output of 373 PS (275 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. More importantly, the model can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in six seconds, hit a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h), return 1.7 L/100 km (138.4 mpg US) and travel up to 35 miles (56 km) on electricity alone.
