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 e-Tron Spyder concept
Audi presents the Audi e-tron Spyder, the study of an open sports car, at
the fall 2010's largest auto show. The show car, with plug-in hybrid drive,
is 4.06 meters (13.32 ft) long, 1.81 meters (5.94 ft) wide and only 1.11
meters (3.64 ft) high. The two-seater is equipped with a 221-kW (300-hp)
twin-turbo V6 TDI at the rear axle and
two electric motors producing a total of 64 kW at the front axle.
The Audi e-tron Spyder's low total weight of only around 1,450 kilograms
(3,196.70 lb) combined with the high-torque TDI and the two electric motors
results in respectable performance. The car accelerates to 100 km/h (62.14
mph) in just 4.4 seconds, and top speed is electronically governed at 250
km/h (155.34 mph).
The e-tron Spyder can combine the powerful torque of its TDI -- the diesel
engine generates 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) and the total of 352 Nm (259.62
lb-ft) of its two electric motors during acceleration in a process known as
Audi Quattro Concept raw footage - static and driving scenes
Audi is developing a production plan for the Quattro Concept as the
automaker considers building a limited series of the model, according to a
report by Autocar.
"We are rethinking standard processes to make it possible. We know how to
engineer it already," said Stefan Reil, chief of development at Quattro
GmbH, Audi's performance division, in an interview with the British car
The Quattro Concept is based on the RS5 and was created to celebrate the
30th anniversary of the original Audi Quattro all-wheel drive system. It is
powered by a 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 300 kW (408 PS / 402
hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. The car weights in at just 1,300
kilograms (2,866 lbs) and manages the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in an easy 3.9
But Audi faces some challenges in taking the Quattro to production.
First off, Audi's partner in the Quattro Concept development is ItalDesign,
which currently has no production capability. And Audi has little
experience in building specialty editions in very low volume and it can't
set a price that is too high.
"We need feedback to see if it is possible. Audi has no heritage in
building 200-500 cars that are really exotic. But it won't be over
€100,000 (£87,600/$139,000)," Reil said in the story.
Audi may get some help, though, from sister brand Lamborghini, which has a
lot of experience in producing supercars with lots of carbon fiber
components such as the Quattro has.
Said Reil, "This car and Lamborghini are in the same exotic corner."
2014 BMW i8 Review
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.
2015 Mercedes - Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept - Official Promo
On November 20th 2013 (local time), the inaugural model in the Vision Gran
Turismo project, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, was revealed at
the Mercedes-Benz Research and Development Center near San Jose,
California. The producer of the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi, was
in attendance, sharing the satisfaction of witnessing the unveiling
together with the Mercedes-Benz staff involved in the creation of the car.
Following this, the AMG is scheduled to be transferred to Los Angeles where
it will be displayed at the Mercedes-Benz booth on the opening day of the
LA Auto Show.
In collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo, Mercedes-Benz has come
up with a striking sports car that features gullwing doors and some
seriously sensuous curves. The image the design team had in mind was that
of a big cat closing in on its prey, and this has been realised in both the
elegance and sense of agility and alertness in the completed model. The
shape of the front grille is modelled on the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL,
the winner of the Carrera Panamericana in 1952, a race famed for its
unforgiving conditions. However, the grille differs from the classic model
in being made entirely from LEDs, capable of lighting up independently in a
variety of patterns .
The body is distinctive chiefly for its impressive curves and powerful and
prominent fender, both of which follow firmly in the tradition of
Mercedes-Benz's impeccably proportioned sports cars. The car pays homage to
classic competition cars with features that include the use of trigger
catches to fasten both the bonnet and rear hatch. It is also equipped with
a moveable rear wing. The chassis is made from an aluminium spaceframe with
carbon fibre components, meaning that its weight is reduced to 1385kg (3053
lbs. ), significantly lighter than normal for this type of sports car.
Underneath its elongated bonnet, the AMG has an optimised 5.5 litre V8 twin
turbo engine, boasting an output of
585ps (577 BHP) with a substantial torque of 800N-m at 2000-4500 rpm. With
its ultra-light body, the AMG achieves a power-to-weight ratio of
2.37kg/ps. The sound designers for the AMG have come up with an elegant
specially-tuned Exhaust note for the
eight independent Exhaust pipes which
have been integrated into the tail lights. Rival drivers will hear this
strong and distinctive engine roar as the AMG races past them.
With the worldwide release of Gran Turismo 6 on 6th December , you will be
able to get behind the wheel of this incredible car, a revolutionary model
that introduces Vision Gran Turismo to the world*. Get ready to experience
the sports car of the future, brought to you by Mercedes-Benz.
Vision Gran Turismo is a project where the world's leading automobile
manufacturers develop exclusive concept cars for fans of Gran Turismo. The
AMG is the first in a series of audacious and ambitious models that you
will not want to miss.

Audi R8 PD GT850 Prior Design - Start up + Acceleration Sounds!
This video shows 2 amazing cars tuned by Prior Design: the Audi R8 PD GT850
Prior Design and the Porsche Panamera turbo PRIOR600. The R8 PD GT850 is without a doubt
one of the most outlandish Audi R8 tunes currently on the market.
Prior Design offers a more muscular appearance to the Porsche Panamera turbo "Prior600″. The diffuser has been
redesigned and reveals a new Exhaust.
Precisely the Exhaust system was
changed by the German tuner, up to now a sports Exhaust system in stainless steel.
At the parking lot of the famous Nürburgring gas station, I have recorded
this amazing supercar duo: the Aston Martin DBS and a Lamborghini Gallardo
LP570-4 Spyder Performante. You might be remember the onboard video of the
Lamborghini, in this video you can hear the Exhaust sounds of both cars.
Which one is your favorite: the Aston Martin DBS or the Lamborghini
