Top 10 Cars of the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show

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.

    What’s the Freaking Lambo?

    I really hope that Opel leads to some sort of new Buick. The brand really needs a shake up.

  • Atticus

    Porsche does it again with it’s 918 Spyder !

  • ez2deal

    Concepts are not really a “car”.

  • Slick

    Robby G, Sure because opel were German Chevy. So General Motors should works some connection whatever GM’s cars make for better fuel techs with electric engine.

    What about the S Coupé concept ?

  • ColumWood

    It wasn’t an easy choice to come up with the list. Still, the S Coupe does nothing for me personally.

  • Pipeline

    The list is stupid. It has nothing to do with what should be the direction of the industry regarding cars on the street. It could just as easily be called the “Top ten weirdos.” You really need to get in touch with reality.
