Audi Quattro Concept is Go For Production!
Quattrophiles rejoice! The drop-dead gorgeous Audi Quattro coupe concept was spotted cruising the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, and its driver let slip a tasty nugget of information: the coupe has been greenlit for a limited production build.
A Jalopnik reader took these photos of the Quattro at a gas station in Malibu, concept license plates, concept interior and all, being escorted by the California Highway Patrol. Along with it, heading for a photo shoot but not pictured, was a classic 1980′s Audi Quattro coupe. Given the original Quattro’s racing credibility, the new coupe has a large set of tires to fill, but we’re confident that with Audi’s commitment to performance, it won’t disappoint.
We especially like the juxtaposition of the S5-like profile curves and wheel arches with the throwback rear end and wing treatment. We’ll send a free The Smoking Tire T-shirt to the first tuner company that turns one of these into a Group-B Rally tribute racer.
