4. Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept
It wasn’t a secret that Audi planned to unveil something powerful in Frankfurt that used an alternative powertrain. If you asked one of the many journalists preparing in the days before its September 10 media preview, most would refer to the Sport Quattro concept.
It wasn’t until a special pre-show preview that the world learned about the Nanuk Quattro Concept. If the photo seems familiar, it’s because the car looks an awful lot like the Giugiaro Parcour. Only this time, there’s no gasoline involved.
Instead, the car uses a V10 turbo diesel with 544 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. That powerplant will rocket this agile supercar crossover mix to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. An air suspension lets it stand on tip-toes to go over rougher ground or hunker down at higher speeds.
