Last month during the IAA show in Frankfurt we saw Audi’s 2013 Quattro Concept which was in fact a continuation of the namesake concept show in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show. Audi says its latest concept is actually a “legitimate successor” of the legendary Sport Quattro from 1984. Seen in this video is the first driving footage with the concept which has slim chances of ever entering production phase but some of the technology will probably find its way on models which will hit Audi showrooms in the near future.
Power of the 2013 Audi Quattro Concept comes from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine and an electric motor that combined offer 700 HP and 800 Nm of torque. The 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) task takes 3.7 seconds prior to a maximum speed of 189 mph (305 km/h). The vehicle weighs 1,850 kg (4,078 lbs) and despite its hefty weight it has a fuel consumption of only 2.5 liters / 100 km (94.1 mpg US or 113 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions standing at 59 g/km and an all-electric range of 31 miles (50 km).
