Audi Sport Quattro Concept in Frankfurt

Germans from Audi have developed a lot of technologies and one of them is the Quattro which was offered to several of their models. This year, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the specialists will present the Audi Sport Quattro concept show car that will continue the grand quattro tradition. How exactly? The engineers have offered several types of design and plug-in hybrid drive with a system that is capable of generating 700 horsepower. So far, Audi managed to sell more than 5 million cars with permanent all-wheel drive.

The strengths of the quattro concept and its successes in racing have been impressively displayed for more than 30 years now and we are still impressed with their capabilities. The exterior of the new model underlines the fact that is a combination between the coupe DNA and incredible elegance. The model was designed for racing and it includes flat C-pillars and the rectangular double headlights featuring the Matrix LED technology which will be available by the end of 2013, under the refreshed Audi A8. The LED high-beam unit of the Matrix LED headlights contains a lot of different diodes. These are being deactivated, activated or dimmed individually according to the situation.

The German designers have reinterpreted these lines which offer the body even greater emotional appeal and broad shoulders. For the interior, the specialists have used elegant materials in dark grey tones and precise lines. The plug-in hybrid can generate 800 Nm of torque and the combustion engine is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 capable of generating 560 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. The customer has the opportunity to select between different characteristics depending on the driving strategy used. When the electric motor and the V8 unit work together, the model is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and to reach a top speed of 305 km/h.
