Quattro concept footage

is it just me, or does the styling lack emotion?  just seems pretty standard contemporary AUDI to me, whereas the ur-quattro took the coupe and gave it balls!

I agree, I think Audi are trying to make things look TOO clean, almost bland, I think the best thing about this car is the roof line, and how it ACTUALLY looks like the roof line of the original Quattro!

There's a story in this month's CAR - concept vs Sport quattro.

 ;)

That yellow thing is a joke !
How can they even entertain making that 1850kg behemoth ?

Doesn't Audi have extensive knowledge of aluminium construction etc. ?
Mind you, past efforts like the A8 etc. show they have squandered that knowledge.

Give it balls and a diet !

The electric drive and associated hardware will do that to the curb weight.

Ditto.

The original Paris concept got me quite excited. But this? Meh!
