Audi Quattro Concept to be based on the A6 image

The German based automaker Audi is planning to introduce a new Quattro Concept, in Frankfurt next month, and the model is expected to be based on the E-segment car, the A6.

The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to the guys at Auto Bild, the carmaker will create the Quattro Concept using the same platform from the current Audi A6. The model in question should get a completely new design language and some radical styling, which is believed to be adopted by future company models over the following years.

The brand new Audi Quattro Concept is said to be approximately 4.6 meters long and, despite the use of the A6 platform, the concept car will weigh approximately 1,200 kg (2,645 lbs), thanks to the use of lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum. As for the engine under its hood, the Audi Quattro Concept is believed to pack a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8, which should produce approximately 600 HP (441 kW) and 800 Nm of torque (590 lb-ft). The 0 to 100 km/h sprint should take just 3 seconds. A production version of the car is just around the corner. More details on the Quattro Concept will be announced during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, on September 10.
