Audi Sport quattro: Revival in 2015?

Audi Sport quattro

Rumor has it that Audi is planning a revival of the Audi Sport quattro in 2015.

If German magazine Auto Bild is correct, a revival of the Audi Sport Quattro, internally known as the Q35, will hit the market in 2015, timed to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Audi Quattro.

In keeping with tradition, the Q35 will reportedly be powered by a forced-induction five-cylinder engine, this one packing 380 horsepower from its supercharged 2.5-liters. The sole transmission option will be Audi’s S tronic dual-clutch gearbox, and all-wheel-drive will be the only layout offered. Expect a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of around four seconds.

The Q35 will be positioned above the Audi TT but below the Audi R8 in price, which puts it in the same category as cars like the BMW M3 and the Mercedes C63 AMG.
