The 2013 Audi Sport Quattro Concept was released in September during the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. The Sport Quattro made its debut back in 1984. Then, in 2010 it was redesigned as a concept created to appeal to the general public and showcased during the Paris Motor Show, but even though it was expected to hit production, this never really happened. Two years later, the project went under development again and was presented as the Audi Sport Quattro Concept during IAA`s 65th edition.
Since then, Audi AG`s Facebook profile reached 100.000 likes. The Ingolstadt based manufacturer chose to express their appreciation for the received likes by releasing a presentation video with of the 2013 Sport Quattro Concept. The new concept is depicted as the initial`s 1984 vehicle `legitimate successor` and it can be viewed here : <iframewidth="420"height="315"src="//www.youtube.com/embed/rV41yQeRTK4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>.
The vehicle comes with a bright yellow paint job and features the same type of hexagonal front grille as the original did. The air outlet is positioned on the right side of the bonnet and the vehicle comes with revised taillights and enhanced exhaust tailpipes. The auto rides on redesigned 21 inch alloy wheels with 285/30 R21 tires.
The manufacturer used lightweight materials such as aluminum for the doors and fenders and carbon fiber for the rear hatch, roof and engine hood. The concept weighs 1.850 Kg (4.078 lbs) and bares a 300 liters trunk capacity.
Motivation is provided by a plug-in hybrid system composed of a V8 4.0 liter twin turbo engine and an electric motor. The engine is mated to an eight speed triptonic transmission and the output is of 700 HP (515 kW) and a 800 Nm (590 lb -ft) peak torque. The vehicle accelerates from 0-62 mph (0-100 KM/ h) in 3.7 seconds before reaching the maximum speed of 189 mph (305 Km/ h). The auto is equipped with a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery enabling a 31 miles (50 Km) ride only on electric power.
