The product of three years' development, Audi's menacing Quattro concept may soon find its way to production, if reports out of Germany are to be believed.
Revealed in 2010 to honour the 30th anniversary of Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system and the original Ur-Quattro, the Quattro concept is built on a shortened version of the A5 platform and shares many components with the new RS 5.
According to German website Auto Bild, Audi is working on a production version of the sleek coupe, with a 2015 debut planned - in time to celebrate thirty-five years of the tech.
Earlier reports suggested the Quattro would be developed as a top-shelf low-volume 'boutique' production model, but these latest whispers point to a regular series-production plan.
In concept form, the Quattro offers 300kw of power, drawn from an enhanced version of the turbo-charged five-cylinder engine driving the 250kW Audi TT RS.
Audi says it will hit 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds - beating even the 4.1 second run of the V10-powered R8 5.2 FSI.
