Audi quattro concept: Scoop shot shows engine layout for first time!

Audi quattro concept

We found a cool scoop shot of the engine layout of the Audi quattro concept during the Detroit Motor Show.

Well theorize no more. We’ve figured out who got photos of the car’s engine bay and that would be our favorite French-language Audi enthusiast site AudiPassion.com. Above is just one shot and, if you click the link below, you’ll see they got many.

Why no pics? There’s nothing altogether top secret here. quattro GmbH staff tell us the engine is no different than that of the TT RS mechancially but that shortened intake manifold has been cut and welded to help clear the small profile of the quattro Concept. After all the TT RS engine mounted North-South is longer and taller than the V10 in the RS 6 and weld lines are a bit unsightly for prime time viewing. We’re guessing though this shots will be right up the alley of our readers and it will end the debate about the car.
