Audi Quattro Concept celebrating the 30th anniversary at the Paris Motor Show
Audi Quattro Concept has been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. The car is specially built to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Quattro. The new concept car is based on the RS5, so it has dimensions of 4.28m long, 1.86m wide, and 1.33m tall. The wheelbase is 2.60m, which is a little shorter than the original of RS5. Another stunning features of Quattro Concept are the aggressive front, a carbon fiber diffuser and center-locking 20" wheels.
The interior includes leather upholstery, but no stunning gadgets. The instrument cluster is digital and the multimedia system can stream internet radio from your cellphone, cool, isn't it?
The car is powered by 2.5TFSI 5-cylinder engine with 408PS (300kW) and 480Nm (354lb-ft). The weight is just 1300kg, so it accelerates super fast – 3.9 seconds to 100 km/h.
Of course, Audi Quattro Concept features the latest generation of the AWD system. It includes a crown-gear center differential which "can vary the distribution of power between the front and rear axles over a broad range, enabling the quattro drive system to react within milliseconds to coax the maximum of fun and safety out of every last bit of torque."
The car stands on huge 9Jx20" wheels with 275/30 tires and center-locking for fast change, just like in the F1.
