New Audi Ur-Quattro may happen soon

Audi S4 fq

Recent reports from Europe are suggesting that Audi is moving closer to producing a new Audi Ur-Quattro, with an ultra-lightweight all-wheel-drive model based on the A5 coupe set for a late 2010 launch.

Since the ‘Ur-Quattro’ debut in 1985, the automotive world has been craving a successor to Audi’s ballistic all-wheel-drive rally special – and it now looks as though Audi has finally taken notice.

The A5 Quattro coupe would take a place in the Audi line-up between the current S5 and the R8, alongside the upcoming RS5. Should it happen the Quattro Coupe can be expected to have a light-weight body and a target weight of under 1400kg.

Power may come in the form of a 317kW (425hp) twin-turbo V6 motivating to all four wheels, although a 225kW twin-turbo 2.0 litre four-cylinder and the 2.5 litre five cylinder from the TT RS could work as well.

Keep your fingers crossed and check back for more updates on the new Quattro.
