Possible re-birth of Audi’s Ur-Quattro with twin-turbo

audi-a5-quattrosportAs far as classic Audi models go, nothing is as iconic as the legendary “Ur-Quattro”. The 1985 Audi Quattro was a beast of a car in its day, even if it only had 160 horsepower.

According to German magazine Autobild, Audi is looking to create a successor to its legendary Ur-Quattro. Based on the A5, and possibly wearing the name ‘A5 quattro sport’, the new model will weigh less than 1400 kg and be powered by a 425 bhp V6 biturbo unit. If the rumours turn out to be true, it’ll be here by 2012 and cost around €70,000.
