Previously reports stated the Quattro Coupe concept may see production in 2013 to honor 35 years of Quattro. That concept featured a sub 3000 pound car with a 380 horsepower inline-5 TFSI motor borrowed from the TT-RS. Now it is rumored Audi is still aiming for the same curb weight but with the 4.0 TFSI from the RS7/RS6 tweaked to 650 horsepower. Seriously Audi? When did you get balls this big?
Imagine this. An all wheel drive 650 horsepower V8 car with a 2866 pound curb weight and a dual clutch transmission. Carbon ceramic brakes, magnetic dampeners. You want to honor a legend? That's how you do it.
The expected price is $150k which is absolutely fine for the specs. More than fine. The question is, will Audi build it? Will they really do this? And if they do, will they bring it to the USA? Audi, please, build this car. Show the world what you can do just like you did in 1984. Create another legend.
