Engine & Performance
The Audi Sport Quattro Concept comes as a plug-in hybrid, it combines a 4.0 liter, twin turbo V8 engine with a disc-shaped electric motor. The engine delivers 552 horsepower, 516 lb ft of torque, while the motor adds another 147 horsepower with a torque of 295 lb ft.
The Sport Quattro Concept was designed following a great tradition that started back in the 1980s. This car has an angular, flat C pillar and rectangular double headlights.
On the front, the car has a hexagonal Single frame grille with a brand new, sculpted grille insert. There are also 2 large, vertical blades that divide each of the large air inlets and a CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymer).
The rear of this car features a spoiler that is placed just on lower edge of rear window.
Being a concept that was inspired by motorsport racing, the interior is designed to give the driver a great experience. The digital instrument cluster, the steering wheel and heads up display are all well placed in such a way that gives a driver easy access, while the ergonomic functions are actually encircled by a line running just below the windscreen.
The car is equipped with some racing inspired buckets seats and a multifunction sports steering wheel that the driver can use to switch between different virtual 3D displays.
