Audi Quattro Concept live debut – Click above for high-res image gallery

Here they are folks, the first live images we've managed to snap of the Audi Quattro Concept that's currently being debuted at the Paris Motor Show. We expect to get much more closely acquainted with the machine over the next couple of days, but until then, take a gander at the machine that Audi crafted to celebrate 30 years of Quattro performance.

Keep in mind that this sucker is packing 408 horsepower from its turbocharged five-cylinder engine and routing all those ponies through a six-speed manual gearbox to all four wheels, making for a power-to-weight ratio on par with that of the Audi R8 5.2 FSI. See the rest of the details here. A fitting tribute, if we do say so ourselves.

      WOW!!! I want one NOW!!! I like it more than the R8 or A5.
      Please, Audi build this monster.

      Nice attempt but the CTS Coupe looks much nicer. The front overhang and rear overhang are disproportionate, the front being too long and the rear being too short.

      Umm, how about a shot of the interior, AB.

      why do i see so much LFA...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Maybe because it's white, and it has vertical vents up front? I don't really see it, but I think those are the elements that might be taking you there.

        From the side it actually kinda reminds me of the scion fuse (and now tC) helmet idea with that huge C-pillar.

      finally, audi seemed to lose the contact with it's fans and to focus more on the competition with BMW and Mercedes over the past few years. can only say as an owner of the original(urquattro) they look like they'r on the right track. FINALLY

      Stop using a wide angle lens for the back end! Crappy photos!!

      Not a fan of the front end. They should stick a VW family front end on it and call it the Corrado.

      meh. kind of ugly, like a GTR and a Mitsubishi had a bastard child.

      I would have this car's babies if it was biologically and mechanically possible. To everyone dissing it, congratulations on being DEAD WRONG.

      Dear Mitsubishi,
      I would like to inform you that Audi has stolen your grill design... the one that represents a shark and has used it without your permission. I think you should call them and at least get some time of monetary compensation from it.


      Sincerely,
      Belvey J

        • 4 Years Ago

        Mitusbishi has stolen the single fram grill from Audi... silly asian copy car fanboys

        That is where design is more Mitsubishi.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Actually, Mitsu took Audi's grill design and just inverted it.
