Audi Gives New Quattro Coupe The Green Light, Prototypes Already Running

One of the stars from last years auto show circuits was the Audi Quattro coupe concept.

According to the latest reports from Europe, Audi execs have given the concept the green light and engineers are already putting prototypes through the test.

Based on the current RS5 platform, the Quattro coupe will benefit from some weight saving measures. For instance, the chassis will be made from aluminum and certain body parts will be made from a carbonfibre-reinforced plastic. All this means is that the Quattro coupe will be about 660 lbs lighter than the RS5, which will certainly give the car a performance advantage.

Currently, Audi is running prototypes dressed in RS5 clothes, so you might need x-ray glasses to spot a real test mule, but if all goes well, production can begin by next year. We can’t wait.
