The Audi Sport Quattro Concept has been officially unveiled by the German based automaker, ahead of the model’s public debut scheduled for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, next week.
The original Audi Sport Quattro has been introduced back in 1984 and in 2010, it was brought back to life by a concept car, which has been recently revised, revealed and aimed towards the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The model in question is finished in bright yellow and it’s coming with a large hexagonal front grille, new design for the taillights, which are united by a thin red bar, redesigned alloy wheels, two exhaust pipes, LED headlights, rear spoiler, 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 285/30 tires and some other tweaks.
The new Audi Sport Quattro Concept has a CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymer) roof, engine hood and rear hatch and aluminum fenders and doors. The total weight of the concept car stands at 1,850 kg (4,078 lbs), and the model is 4,602 mm long, 1,964 mm wide and 1,386 mm tall, with a 2,784 mm long wheelbase and a trunk capacity of 300 liters. The cabin has digital instrument clusters, central-mounted rev counter, flanked by the Le Mans map on the left and the lap times on the right, 3d displays, multi-function sport steering wheel and more.
Power to the model is being provided by a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 TFSI engine, which is good for 560 HP (412 kW) and 700 Nm of torque (516 lb-ft), backed up by an electric motor which is installed between the petrol burner and the 8-speed tiptronic transmission, providing an extra 150 HP (110 kW) and 400 Nm of torque (295 lb-ft), taking its energy from a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. The total output produced stands at 700 HP (515 kW) and 800 Nm of torque (590 lb-ft), enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 305 km/h (190 mph).
