Audi Sport Quattro Concept To Be Shown Next Week at Frankfurt

The Audi Sport quattro two-seater concept has a plug-in hybrid drive with a system output of 700 horsepower with the power flowing through a modified eight-speed tiptronic to the quattro powertrain, which features a sport differential on the rear axle producing 94 mpg. The wheelbase is 109.61 inches with an overall length of 181.18 inches. When the V8 and the electric motor work together, the Audi Sport quattro concept accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 189 mph. The Audi Sport quattro concept can cover up to 31 miles on electric power alone.

The Audi Sport quattro concept will be on display next week at the Frankfurt Auto Show which alternates every other year with the Paris Auto Show. It covers a huge area with multiple pavilions and the German manufacturers each have their own building large enough to host entire small market auto shows.
