New Audi Quattro Concept Revealed With Extreme Performance and Design

Audi has revealed design sketches of its updated Quattro concept, with the new car making the original look as tame as a VW Golf.

Originally shown at the 2010 Paris Motor Show sporting a 408 hp turbocharged 2.5-liter engine and based on a lightened version of the A5 it drew stares. The new Quattro Concept, by comparison, turns up the performance and design to a truly extreme level.

The Quattro concept at Frankfurt will feature a hybrid powertrain, though Audi didn’t disclose which engine will be lurking under the hood. It is expected however, that it’ll be a variant of the automaker’s 4.0-liter V8 found in the RS6 and RS7 models. It is being reported that in all-electric mode, the Quattro concept can travel up to 22 miles and will have a top speed of 206 mph, accelerating to 62 mph from a standstill in about three seconds.
