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.

You’re probably too young — The design clearly harkens back to the early VW Scirocco, which is similar to the CTS Coupe. Good design never goes out
of style.

The car is hideous for an Audi, don’t change your mind cause the stars disagree with you.

I like some of the concepts in the sketches better than the final render but I’m sure if it ever went into production it would be toned down significantly anyway.

I like the style, but it seems to be a bit more style over function. The Ur-Quattro was great because it was revolutionary. This seems a bit derivative. Same Audi styling, but lower... so little glass area, I’m wondering if it’ll be really hard to see out of. The Ur-Quattro was great to see out of. Also, it was an all weather beast, not a canyon carver. This just seems like a larger TTRS, which is kind of pointless.
