Great news today: the Audi quattro concept aka The Beast is heading towards production.
According to Autocar, the vehicle will be evaluated by the Board of Management before they render their verdict for production. Despite the formality, sources are reporting that approval is virtually a foregone conclusion.
Essentially a shorter and lighter RS5, the Quattro concept featured a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine with 408 PS (300 kW / 402 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. It was paired to a six-speed manual transmission which enabled the 1,300 kg (2,866 lbs) coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds.
