Modern day Audi Quattro is coming..

Audi stunned us at the recent Paris Motor Show when it unveiled the Quattro concept , which pays homage to the original Quattro that pioneered the automaker's now signature all-wheel-drive system. It shares its underpinnings with those found on the hot RS5 coupe, packing 408 horsepower and weighs less than 3,000 pounds.

For those who dreamt of a production version, that dream may become a reality according to Autocar. Audi has reportedly been advancing plans for a limited production run of the Quattro, assembled on a dedicated line at parent company Volkswagen's newly acquired design firm, Italdesign. Stefan Reil, head of development at Audi's Quattro Gmbh division, told Autocar that the automaker is "rethinking standard processes to make it possible," and that Audi "know[s] how to engineer it already."

If the Quattro concept gets the green light, power would likely come from a tuned version of the turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-five found in the TT RS, producing somewhere around 350 horsepower. Although It's not the 408 hp unit that Audi originally quoted, if the sub-3,000-pound weight is kept in order, it should still make for one heck of an interesting performer.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
