Those attending the Paris Motor Show may want to give the Audi stand a closer look.  There, fans of the brand will find a prototype of the Audi Quattro Concept fit for the races.

Painted in red, white and black as an homage to the early 1980s Audi rally cars, the car has a number of high performance features not seen on the main concept vehicle.  Clearly noticeable attributes include the ventilated hood, a massive front lip spoiler, aerodynamic changes around the wheels and polycarbonate racing windows.

A big rear wing was also added, with a German flag design on its sides.  It looks as though both cars use the same center-locking 20-inch alloy wheels.

Audi did not say what engine the rally-inspired concept is using.  The main concept utilizes a 402-horsepower (300-kW, 408-PS) 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine.  The unit delivers up to 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, letting the car accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds.

If you're heading out to the Paris Motor Show, make sure you snap a few pics of Audi's vision for the near future of racing.
