The German luxury car maker Audi will reveal the plug-in intangible successor of the Quattro Sport at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show that will begin on the 10th of September, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Sport edition. The Sport is a muscle-bound, short wheel base Coupe that was originally created for the rally races, but somehow the car found its way into the street legal Coupe family and has been in production for the general public since then. The only mind numbing fact is that, the Concept Quattro will be a plug-in with 700 BHP.
The Concept comes with a familiar TFSI V8 petrol block that currently powers the RS6, with 552 BHP and 700 NM of Torque. This engine comprises of the cylinder shutdown technology which shuts half the block down when cruising, and start-stop system for fuel efficiency. The only difference between the concept and the RS6 is an electric motor wedged between the transmission and the engine. Now this electric motor adds another 150 BHP and 400 NM of Torque to the already extremely powerful V8 locomotive, so that brings the overall power to 702 BHP and 1100 NM of Torque. That is the same amount of power that can be found in the Volvo FH16, a Freightliner that can pull and carry 40 tons of cargo.
The extra surge of power pushes the car to a 100 Kmph from a standstill in just 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 306 Kmph. What's more surprising is the fact that, the electric motor with a full charge will be capable of delivering a mileage of 50 kilometers all by itself. Audi said that the Concept is built with aluminum elements and carbon fiber reinforced polymer, but the car still weighs around 1,850 kilograms, which is heavier that the standard RS5 Coupe who weighs 1715 kilograms.
