Audi is on to something good, and they should know it by now. The German car manufacturer has already been tossing around the idea around to produce the Audi Quattro concept that was revealed at the Paris Motor Show recently and inventive minds of artists everywhere are already wielding a sketch pad and pencil - okay, so maybe it’s a computer monitor and mouse - and coming up with options for what the production version could look like. We say, "Bring it on!" It’s no secret that we love the look of this car, so getting the opportunity to look at different renderings for the sports car is right up our alley!
This particular rendering combines design elements from the Quattro concept with elements from the original Audi Quattro. Add a slick two-tone paint job and, "Voilà!"
Now if only Audi would get on with it. Stefan Reil, head of development at Audi’s Quattro Gmbh division said: "We are rethinking standard processes to make it possible. We know how to engineer it already. We need feedback to see if it is possible. Audi has no heritage in building 200-500 cars that are really exotic. But it won’t be over €100,000 (around $140,000 at the current exchange rates)."
The concept is powered by a five-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers an impressive 408 HP, but the production version will be somewhere in the 350 HP area.
