Audi revises its Sport Quattro Concept for IAA

Audi has updated its Sport Quattro Concept and they plan on showing it at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. The car has received a hybrid powertrain encompassing a V8 TFSI twin-turbo 4.0-liter engine rated at 560 HP and 700 Nm of torque. There’s also an electric motor producing an additional 150 HP and 400 Nm, granting the vehicle with a combined output of 700 HP and 800 Nm. Thanks to this setup, the Sport Quattro will need just 3.7 seconds until 62 mph (100 km/h), on its way to a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h). It should be able to travel on electric power for 31 miles (50 km).

Audi says the car has an impressive average fuel consumption of only 2.5 liters / 100 km (113 mpg UK or 94 mpg US) which corresponds to 59 g/km of CO2 emissions. To get to these figures, Audi’s engineers fitted the TFSI engine with cylinder-on-demand and stop/start systems. Despite being fast and economical, the revised concept is quite heavy as it tips the scales at a considerable 4,078 lbs (1,850 kg).
