Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/260275/audi_quattro_concept.html Audi is heading back to the future! Thirty years after the original quattro rewrote the rulebook, Audi has re-imagined its most iconic model for the modern age. But can the Quattro Concept, first shown at the Paris show last month, do justice to its illustrious ancestors? Auto Express was first to put this year's most exciting new model to the test.

700HP Audi Sport Quattro Concept - Sound & Driving Scenes
https://www.facebook.com/Monaco911 Some time ago I filmed the Audi Sport Quattro Concept car - it is said to have a hybrid engine with a total power of 700 HP. In this video you can see the original car from Geneva 2013 driving around, parking on its later display spot and stopping the engine via remote control. In my opinion, it looks pretty cool, I especially like the chrome finished wheels and the LED light designs in the front and in the rear of the car. In the end of the video, you can see a Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversarion Roadster, a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Lang Lang Edition and the all-new Porsche 911 (991) turbo. Check out my channel for further footage of these awesome supercars. Camera: Panasonic HC-V727

NEW Audi Sport quattro concept 700 hp
quattro is more than just a technology -- quattro is a philosophy. The term stands for driving safety and sportiness, technical competence and a dynamic approach to life. Since the debut of the "Ur-quattro" in 1980, Audi has sold more than five million cars with permanent all-wheel drive, far more than any other premium manufacturer worldwide. The strengths of the quattro¬†concept and its successes in racing have been impressively displayed for over three decades now. The plug-in hybrid drive makes the Audi¬†Sport¬†quattro¬†concept a breathtakingly dynamic coupe. System output is 515¬†kW (700¬†hp); system torque is 800¬†Nm (590.05¬†lb-ft). Power flows through a modified eight-speed tiptronic to the quattro powertrain, which features a sport differential on the rear axle. According to the applicable standard, the show car consumes on average 2.5¬†liters of fuel per 100¬†kilometers (94.09¬†US¬†mpg), a CO2 equivalent of 59¬†grams per kilometer (94.95¬†g/mile). The combustion engine is a four-liter, twin-turbo V8. It produces 412¬†kW (560¬†hp) and 700¬†Nm (516.29¬†lb-ft) of torque. The cylinder on demand (COD) system, which deactivates four cylinders under part load, and a start-stop system make the sonorous eight-cylinder unit very efficient. Located between the 4.0¬†TFSI and the transmission is a disc-shaped electric motor producing 110¬†kW and 400¬†Nm (295.02¬†lb-ft). It draws its traction energy from a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery in the rear with a capacity of 14.1¬†kWh. The show car is charged via an Audi wall box, which uses intelligent charge management to ensure the optimal feed of energy to the lithium-ion battery. The Audi¬†Sport¬†quattro¬†concept can cover up to 50¬†kilometers (31.07¬†miles) on electric power alone. An intelligent management system controls the interplay between the two drives as needed, and the driver can choose between various operating modes. The customer can choose between various characteristics for the Audi Sport¬†quattro¬†concept depending on the operating and driving strategy. A choice of three modes is available. EV mode is for purely electric driving; Hybrid mode for maximum efficiency and Sport mode for maximum performance. In EV mode, only the electric motor is active. With a peak electric output of 110¬†kW and 400¬†Nm (295.02¬†lb-ft) of torque, electric driving both inside and outside the city is possible. An active accelerator indicates the transition to hybrid operation to the driver so that he/she can consciously control the switch between electric and hybrid vehicle. In Hybrid mode, environmental and route data are used to compute the optimal use of the electric motor and combustion engine for fuel efficiency and implement this via the operating strategy. If navigation is active, the route is optimized for efficiency. This mode also includes the ability to customize the operating strategy. If the driver wants to retain a certain amount of electric range or to drive certain route segments on electric power, they can use the Hold or Charge function to precisely adjust the charge of the battery even without charging from the power grid. In Sport mode, the operating strategy sets the drive system for maximum power and performance. The electric Boost function supports the combustion engine in all driving situations. The energy management system ensures that the battery always has sufficient charge. When the V8 and the electric motor work together, the Audi Sport¬†quattro¬†concept accelerates from 0 to 100¬†km/h (62.14¬†mph) in 3.7¬†seconds -- much like the powerful Audi rally cars once did. Its top speed is 305¬†km/h (189.52¬†mph). The lightweight construction concept also plays a large part in this dynamic performance. The occupant cell combines ultra-high-strength steel panels and cast aluminum structural elements. The doors and fenders are made of aluminum, and the roof, the engine hood and the rear hatch are made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer. The result is a curb weight including the battery pack of just 1,850¬†kilograms (4,078.55¬†lb). The show car's chassis is easily able to handle the drive system's power. Handling is as dynamic as it is stable. The front suspension features five control arms per wheel; the rear suspension follows the Audi track-controlled trapezoidal link principle. Tautly tuned springs and dampers connect the Audi Sport¬†quattro¬†concept firmly to the road. The dynamic steering varies its ratio as a function of driving speed. The brake calipers grip large, carbon fiber-ceramic brake discs, and the tire format is 285/30¬†R¬†21. ‚Ėļ SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=youcarpress ‚Ėļ FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress ‚Ėļ TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/youcartv ‚Ėļ GOOGLE+: http://goo.gl/HpsSa9
