The Brits from Auto Express had a chance to drive the Audi Quattro Concept, which premiered at this year’s Paris Motor Show and which pays homage to the original Quattro model from 30 years ago.
Some of the design elements on the Audi Quattro Concept that remind of the Sport Quattro from 1984 are the air vents at the front or the bog C pillars, and according to the German automaker, the car is based on a shorter Audi RS5 platform, with a 2.5-litre turbocharged 5-cylinder engine from the TT RS under its bonnet.
This means the Audi Quattro Concept produces 408 HP and 480 Nm of torque and when sprinting from 0 to 100 Km/h the car should only need 3.8 seconds.
As far as weight saving measures applied to keep the Audi Quattro Concept as light as possible, there are the carbon fiber seats, the absence of rear passenger seats, the aluminium made chassis and body panels made from a combination of carbon and aluminium.
The Audi Quattro Concept weights 1,300 Kg which is almost identical to the original Quattro and hopefully we will see this car make it into production.
