Audi Sport Quattro concept plays homage to the 1983 original

Ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show next week Audi has released the first pictures of its Sport Quattro concept and it looks somewhat similar to the original.

According to carmagazine.co.uk, the new Quattro is impressively fast, as it can go from zero - 62mph in just 3.7 seconds and its top speed is 189mph.

It looks good too, like a modern version of the 1983 original. It retains some of the styling of the classic rally car by keeping the concept broad but the originals angular design has been smoothed out somewhat in order to make it look more modern. The concept also aims to impress with its size too, as it features 21-inch wheels, reports topgear.com.

The big difference between the old Quattro and new is engine, as the concept features a V8 petrol engine and an electric motor. On the electric motor alone, the car can travel distances of up to 31 miles.

Those thinking of picking up the Audi Sports Quattro will probably want to think about fitting a car tracking device, as it will be difficult to replace if stolen and the device can help the police to find it. Audi says the Quattro could cost buyers around £150,000 and it's likely only a small amount will be manufactured for purchase.

Inside the car, drivers will find a heads-up display, sports bucket seats and a multi-function sports steering wheel.
