Audi Quattro Concept Video

We are there as the Audi Quattro Concept gets its first outing on the road

Just before Christmas evo was given the chance to drive the new Quattro Concept. It has a  400bhp in-line five-cylinder turbocharged engine from the TT RS, which makes all the right evocative Quattro noises, and the chassis is a shortened version of the one underpinning the RS5.

Inside it’s a similar story with a very clean, modern and very carbonfibre-biased look but with the MMI buttons moved to the instrument binnacle, which again reminds you of the original Quattro.

Thre’s no word yet on whether Audi will put the concept into production, but a decision should be made very soon – fingers crossed.
