New Audi Quattro at Paris – The UrQuattro ConceptSat, 25 Sep 2010
Audi UrQuattro Concept - Car Magazine's apparently 'On the Money' rendering
It’s thirty years since the Audi Quattro stormed the world and changed the perception of Audi forever. No longer the son of NSU, but a premium maker with rally heart; in many ways the real beginning of the Audi world domination plan.
At Geneva this year Audi payed homage to its history, but word is reaching us that the Paris Motor Show will go one step further, with a full-blown, ready to produce 21st century Audi UrQuattro Concept.
Said to be based on a shortened S5, the UrQuattro Concept will be AWD and feature the 5-pot lump from the Audi TT RS, but with output raised to 400bhp.
Intriguingly, it seems Car Magazine produced a story a year ago that is very much on the money, particularly the rendering of the UrQuattro Concept (which is the photo at the top). We also think the UrQuattro will be a limited run car, not a full production model.
Not much to go on at the moment, but we’re digging for more information.
