The Audi Quattro is a very important car in the history of automobiles. Bringing all wheel drive to the masses and then using it to transform the world of rallying, this machine is quite the landmark. A symbol of 80’s cool, Audi first introduced a modern-day interpretation of the Quattro in concept form in 2010, but today that concept comes another step closer to reality.
The rebirth of the Quattro is something fans, and myself, have been crying out for and now our calls are answered in the Audi Sport Quattro. The menacing looking car may still be a concept, but what you see here is a model not too far from a production variant that will sit even above the R8 supercar. How so? Well I think it has something to do with 690BHP being produced by its twin-turbo 4.0 litre engine and an electric motor. Power is sent to all four wheels via an 8 speed transmission. Packing 590lb ft of torque the new Quattro will dart from 0-62MPH in 3.7 seconds. Not only does it impress in terms of speed but other performance benchmarks such as economy. 113MPG is possible, not to mention the capability of running for 30 miles on pure electric power. Not bad for a 190MPH supercar.
