Ever since Audi revealed a quattro concept back in 2010, we’ve expected it to turn in to at least a limited production run. But it hasn’t. And now, instead of the news that the quattro for the 21st century is heading in to production, we’re treated to a new quattro concept instead which may, or may not, make production.
Audi has released the first images of their new quattro concept, but not much in the way of detail after a tease a week or two back for something new from Audi at Frankfurt.
As far as we can tell, the new quattro is an updated version of the last quattro concept with styling that points to the future of Audi styling.
Under the skin it does seem likely that it will be powered by Audi’s 4.0 litre turbo V8 with something north of 600bhp at its disposal plus a further (unknown) amount of power from an electric motor or two. Yes, this quattro appears to be a quattro e-tron hybrid, but with the emphasis firmly on power rather than economy.
Now this much is out on the interwebs on the new Audi quattro e-tron hybrid concept, you can be sure we’ll have more concrete information long before Frankfurt arrives.
Will this Audi quattro go in to production as an Audi Flagship for performance and e-tron tech? Your guess is as good as ours.
