Audi Avus Quattro

First introduced at the 1991 Frankfurt Show, the all-wheel-drive Audi Avus had projected performance figures that seem amazing even today. The car featured a 6 liter W-12 engine (with 3 banks of 4 cylinders) and 5 valves per cylinder. Output was 509 bhp @ 5800 rpm, and 398 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm. The body was finished in unpainted aluminum. Estimated top speed was 211 mph, with 0-60 appearing in an incredible 2.9 seconds.
