Audi Sport Quattro to slot between TT and R8 image

Audi is planning to introduce a production version of the recently unveiled Sport Quattro Concept, which will slot between the new TT generation and the R8 supercar.

The German based automaker Audi is planning to put the newly unveiled Sport Quattro Concept into production. The company is considering that there is room on the market for such a vehicle and, in its current lineup, the model will slot between the new generation of the TT and the R8 supercar. The announcement has been hinted by Ulrich Hackenberg, the company’s boss, who has recently spoken to the guys at Top Gear.

As you probably remember, the new Audi Sport Quattro Concept has been officially presented to the public back in September 2013, during the Frankfurt Motor Show. The model in question is powered by a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which is backed up by an electric motor and mated to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The total output produced by this assembly stands at 700 HP (515 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, which is enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint made in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 305 km/h (189 mph). The average fuel consumption stood at just 2.5L / 100 km in the one-off vehicle.
