More confirmation that Audi will be taking the Quattro model to production has surfaced recently.
According to a recent report the Quattro Concept was spotted with design-studio license plates on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California. The car was being escorted to a photo shoot by the California Highway Patrol.
When questioned Audi employees let it slip that the car was, indeed, headed to production.
The result of the video shoot is this video fully edited.

Audi A3 sedan concept revealed
Intended to recapture the glory of the original A4 (B5) that launched in
1994, the A3, shown for the first time as a sedan, features the familiar
Audi family grille with LED lined headlamps. Elsewhere, Audi keeps things
interesting with agressive bumper fascias, flared fender arches and big
20-inch wheels constructed of carbon fiber and aluminum.
Dressed like a future RS model, power arrives via the same 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine found in
the RS3 Sportback. However, the A3 sedan concept produces 68 PS (50 kW / 67
bhp) more at 408 PS (300 kW / 402 hp) through a seven-speed S tronic
transmission and quattro all-wheel drive.
Performance is supercar good with the 0-100 km/h sprint taking 4.1-seconds
in the 1540 kg (3400 lb) vehicle.
Audi R8 V10 Spyder Promo
Audi first unveiled the R8 V10 Spyder at the 2009 Frankfurt International
Motor Show in September 2009. It runs the same 5.2-litre V10 engine found
in the coupe. Maximum power is 386kW (518 PS) and peak torque is 530Nm (391
lb-ft). The 0 - 62mph sprint time is 4.1 seconds while the manual can
deliver a top speed of 194mph.
Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid drives - first real video
This past Thursday, the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid made its driving debut on
a closed road in Monterey California, just days prior to its appearance at
the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
After being shipped over from Germany by plane, engineers handed the keys
of the new 918 Spyder Hybrid to Porsche AG Design Chief Michael Mauer. The
car drove under its own power which comes from the mid mounted 3.4 liter V8
out of the RS Spyder as well as in all electric mode which powers just the
The 918 Spyder prototype combines high-tech racing features and
electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: An emission
level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometre on fuel consumption of three
litres/100 kilometres (equal to 94 mpg imp) truly outstanding even for an
ultra-compact city car, on the one hand, combined with the performance of a
super sports car and acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in
just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) plus, and a lap
time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT,
on the other.

2014 BMW i8 Review
Subscribe : http://www.youtube.com/user/Auto1News?sub_confirmation=1
What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years
ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a
high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like,
sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours
from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please.
For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine
formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder
paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The
three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic
transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.
Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs,
driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
Audi Hungaria Motor Kft / Production - Gyor Hungary
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Audi AG - Engine production in Győr already
began in late 1993 with pre-series production. The engine plant was
officially opened in October 1994. In opening this plant, Audi not only
safeguarded its international competitiveness, it also created a strategic
base in Hungary that increasingly gained in importance. Győr now produces
almost the entire range of Audi engines.
Engine production started with the four-cylinder five-valve engine with a
displacement of 1.8 liters, in both naturally aspirated and turbo versions. V6 engines with a displacement of
2.4, 2.7, 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2 liters have also been built at Győr since 1998.
The volume production of 4.2-liter eight-cylinder engines was started at
the end of 1997. By this time, diesel engines with pump-injector technology
were also produced at the Győr site.
The product range was expanded in 2002 with a new generation of engines
featuring FSI gasoline direct injection; the connecting rod production line
for four-cylinder diesel engines began operation two years later. In April
2006, Audi Hungaria brought a particularly powerful engine onto the market
-- the 5.2-liter ten-cylinder gasoline engine with FSI technology. Another
milestone followed that same year: The company presented the Audi Valvelift
System -- a future-oriented, highly efficient and at the same time
surprisingly simple valve-control technology.
