The Audi quattro concept is under consideration for production.
Speaking with Motor Trend, Volkswagen Group CEO Martin Winterkorn said “I want to do it.” He personally envisions it as a full range of cars with different engines, and a production volume of 35,000 units every year. He believes that the quattro would clash with other cars if they made it a niche model. However, brands in the VW Group have “as much freedom as possible, with as much centralization as necessary,” so Audi CEO Rupert Stadler will have the final say in the car’s future.
Stadler has a different vision of the quattro’s production. He sees it as a low-volume car, offered with just one engine and a high price tag.
Either way, the production of the car seems to make a lot of sense. Unlike most concepts, this has been thoroughly developed. Development took three years, and the display model is capable of running at speeds up to 100 mph.
We’re hoping for the rather unlikely option of high-volume production, but either way, it’ll be nice to see this great concept become a reality. Even if the car gets the green light however, it will be another three years before production commences.
