QUATTRO COUPE TO GET GREEN LIGHT

400bhp coupe in final stages of exec evaluation at Audi; could be here by 2013


There's been much hope in recent months that Audi's chunky 402bhp Quattro Concept would become a production reality (including on this very site), and now it seems about to become true.

According to the super-sleuths at our sister publication Autocar, an S5-based prototype has been built for evaluation by senior Audi management before the final green light is lit, but it seems as if this may just be an effective formality, with a launch planned for 2013.

The prototype, says Autocar, shaves 300kg from the kerb weight of an RS5, but the final production car could be even lighter, with a 150mm-shorter wheelbase and lightweight tricks for the interior. Word is that the final car could be 225kg lighter than an Audi R8. Now that, we like the sound of...

I can't make my mind up, from some angles it looks awesome but my main gripe is that huge hole at the front, needs a bar through it to break it up imo

From the back, hell yeah. Sides are pretty good too...

The front end though, ruins it. It's like an A4 mated with an Evo 10, in a bad way.

Looks great, well apart from agreeing with the above comments about the grill. It's nice to see some new production cars can still look stylish.
