2015 Audi Quattro Coupe

The 2010 Paris Auto Show brought us many concepts, but while the Lotus five-year plan has since fizzled to nothing and the Renault Dezir is only planned to be chopped up and used for inspirational parts, Audi is pushing forward with a production version of the Quattro concept . That’s right, the Quattro has been given the green light for limited production which should be ready for the 2015 model year.

The production Quattro will be based on Audi’s latest aluminum spaceframe chassis with a body built in carbon fiber-reinforced plastic. It will weigh in at about 660 lbs less than the RS5 as seen on the prototypes already testing. It will also feature a wheelbase that has been reduced by 150 mm and an interior featuring seats made from forged composites.

We don’t know exactly what will be used under the hood of the sports car, but the concept version is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder attached to a classic six-speed gearbox. The engine delivers a total of 402 HP and 354 pound-feet of torque. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in just 3.9 seconds, while top speed is of course limited to 155 mph. Hopefully we will see either this configuration or something a bit more powerful on the production Quattro.

UPDATE 08/24/2012: Sources have told AutoBild that the future Audi Quattro Coupe (internally known as the Q35) will only feature small bits of inspiration from the Quattro Concept displayed at the 2011 Paris Auto Show. Other than that, the four-seater, two door sports car will have short overhangs, a flat roof, LED headlights and taillights, 20" wheels, and some hood-mounted air vents inspired by the original Quattro. In terms of power, the Quattro will feature a supercharged 2.5L five-cylinder engine mated to a dual clutch S-tronic transmission. This engine will produce 380 HP and send the Quattro from 0-62 mph in a little over four seconds.

AutoBild is predicting that the Audi Quattro will debut in March 2013 to coincide with the original Quattro’s 35th anniversary, hence the internal Q35 designation. It will be priced somewhere between the Audi TT and the Audi R8, which will fill in the gap nicely with the $38,650 and $114,200 price tags of the aforementioned models.

This Quattro Coupe is absolutely looking great on its aesthetic design and decent body paint, and I noticed that the wheels of this one, is only adds more appeal on it.

I hope that they will use an impressive engine for this coupé that can deliver a powerful horsepower, so it will not hesitated on its aggressive appearance. I also hope that it had a striking interior.

Impressive Quattro Coupe, well I bet anyone will get so excited on this coupe. I love the angst that it had and the classy look of it even the elegance.

Agreed! I was amazed on this production for it has an impressive platform and it looks so sporty, as expected from the Audi! I think it’s a great bonus that they don’t put a speed limiter for this sportscar.

Agreed. Its been a long time before the Audi has announced the concept of this vehicle. I was impressed on how the Audi have perfectly combine the sportiness and luxurious for this vehicle. The speed performance of the Quattro is kind of awesome!

Yeah, you have a point I rather wait for the modified version of this car. It seems that the reduced in the weight of the car helps to speed up the car.

I do believe that the Quattro coupe has amazing aesthetics. However, I do hope that a good tuning company would modify the engine performance of this car because its not that powerful.

I like this car aesthetically really looks amazing. However, I’m afraid that the speed performance of this car is not that impressive since its too heavy.

Well, Zosimos, I really don’t consider this car kind of ugly actually Audi has the cutest yet aggressive face that i have seen. And the engine performance of this car is quite amazing! I can’t wait to test drive this one!

The front really wins it all for this car. While it still retains its Audi looks, there is something to it that makes it quite remarkable and unique.

Hahaha! You’re right, that car is definitely mocking us with that look. But this one is definitely starting to make its mark on me, with that totally different look.

Damn, I feel like that car is looking back at me. It seems to be saying “Who’s ugly now? Who’s ugly now?” Well, this car definitely ain’t.

Well, it seems that it won’t be as heavy as you might think. Audi will probably make it lighter in order to make it faster. I hope they also work on the engine.

Looking at the weight of the car its kind of heavy and at first i thought it would be a gas guzzler but it wasn’t. Well, actually its fuel efficient and 3.9 sprint time is impressive too.

I must say that this one is actually one of the better coupe works by Audi. The proportions of the car are just right and everything in the design flows out rather well.

Well, the numbers that they are giving us are actually rather good. However, since we don’t know the specs of the engine yet, we really are not sure yet if this one is close to the real deal.

Aesthetically, i love this car. The engine performance is quite impressive too. I hope i could read a complete detail for this car. And I just wonder who will the competitor of this car.

Yeah, I agree with you. The grill does fit in with the whole front really well. And it doesn’t look too big this time around. Definitely a good job from them.

Wow, I actually like the front look of this car. I must admit that I am not really fond of Audi’s huge front grilles, but this one actually makes it look perfect.
