Updated Audi Quattro concept will be based on the A6 - report

The Frankfurt Motor Show is just a couple of weeks away and new details are starting to emerge about the Audi Quattro concept.

Autobild is reporting the model will feature radical styling that previews the company's new design language. The publication declined to elaborate but said the concept will measure approximately 4.6 meters long and ride on an "enhanced" version of the A6 platform. While the A6 isn't a featherweight, the concept is rumored to weigh approximately 1200 kg (2645 lbs) thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum.

Power will reportedly be provided by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops approximately 600 HP (441 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. This could enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in about three seconds.

Audi is reportedly considering a production version so they will likely be watching feedback very closely.
