Audi Quattro Concept, What Up!
Audi shameless lot lately. Having yielded to the demands of drivers who wanted brand cars more alive, more typical sports including S and RS, Audi surprised the world with all its Quattro Concept. And what a face!
Built in homage once again hit the famous Quattro 80s, this Quattro concept is a pure success: brutal physical and compact, while aggression contained, it transpires sport in the rough. He plays on the historical fiber, but not neoretro in this drawing, which has both reinterpret and reinterpret his grandfather that made his success: low glass surface, mouth predator, truncated rear.
The concept is based on a shortened RS5 chassis but the engine is not a V8 it is the 2.5 5 cylinder from the TT RS, but increased to 408 hp via a bigger turbo. This block allows both connecting the concept to its illustrious predecessor, and proposing the nobility and power in a small footprint. It is associated with a manual gearbox, which is surprising in Audi, cantor of the robotized gearbox with double clutch.
KG with 1300, this new coupe Quattro reaches 300 km / h and 100 km / h in only 3.9 s standing start. Boy that kids you not!
Presented earlier as potentially produisible in very limited series of 500 copies, so ultra exclusive, a debate rages in time at Audi, because after the madness generated by this car last world, the CEO of Volkswagen Group would produce the largest series, with more motors.
If this is the decline in S, RS, and stay on the noble engines, I vote yes. If this is to put a TDI, then, I am completely against, and I prefer to fantasize about an exclusive car than to see every corner trying to snap and shout loudly at 4500 r / min . If this happens, the coupe Quattro history should be turning in his grave.
