Back when the car made its debut, Audi announced that the main tast of the new Quattro concpet is to showcase the versatility of the much publicized MLB platform. This is the same platform that will also underpin the future Audi models above A4 and Q5 up.
“There are many driveline possibilities for the car,” said a high Audi official.“It has a lot of potential due to the platform, one of them very powerful. If we have a car on the modular system, we can take other drivelines. It has a potential for bigger volume. To make this car requires a big investment, and it makes sense for us to widen its potential.”, he added.
The new Audi Sport Quattro Concept is powered by a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid drivetrain that boasts of a combined power output of 690bhp, making this concept car the most powerful Audi ever. The concept measures 4602mm in length, 1964mm in width and 1386mm in height. The car has a wheelbase of 2784mm. While the front-mounted engine has a max power output of 552 bhp of max power and 516 lb ft of peak torque, the electric motor brings in another 148 bhp and 295 lb ft. A rear-mounted 14.1kWh battery pack provides juice to the electric motor.
