Could have 600 HP (441 kW)

The Frankfurt Motor Show is just a couple of weeks away and new details are starting to emerge about the Audi Quattro concept.

Autobild is reporting the model will feature radical styling that previews the company's new design language. The publication declined to elaborate but said the concept will measure approximately 4.6 meters long and ride on an "enhanced" version of the A6 platform. While the A6 isn't a featherweight, the concept is rumored to weigh approximately 1200 kg (2645 lbs) thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum.

Power will reportedly be provided by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops approximately 600 HP (441 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. This could enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in about three seconds.

Audi is reportedly considering a production version so they will likely be watching feedback very closely.

No, a high performance sports car cannot make any threat to an expensive grand tourer.

With that weight and that power, looks like it's closer to a Ferrari FF competitor.

No disrespect to WCF, as I love this site and check it every day, but Autobild.de is essentially the National Enquirer of the automotive world. Although I would love for their stories to have some semblence of truth, I have found in the past that my dreams have been crushed on more than one occasion by their active imaginations.

The Ouattro and the similarly styled eTron Spyder look awesome.

Hmmm, I'm confused as to why it would be the "A6 platform". 4.6m is closer to A5 length. And I assume the Quattro concept would be a 2 door, as the A5, right?
