Audi will be showing of a brand new concept at this year Frankfurt Auto Show – The Audi Sport Concept. A yellow version of the Audi Quattro concept or maybe its just its evil look-a-like twin! Audi added that “Audi is Quattro and Quattro is Audi” The two join forces to celebrate the 30th birthday of the sports Quattro “that explains why the vehicle looks just like the concept from 5 years ago”. The Sport Concept features a plug in hybrid system that Audi describe as “amazing” hybrid system that send out an output of 515 kw which is about 700 horse’s (Horsepower). Which mounted on to a fresh simple design that features a single frame Audi hexagon grille with a striking new front end which featured Audi new Matrix LED that’s now yet available in the USA do to federal regulations, and 21′ inch wheels with a wheelbase of 2,784 Millimeters (109.61 inches), and measuring around 4,602 Millimeters (77.32 inches) that seems like it would have an awesome back seat in do part to its design.
Here is how Audi describe the Single fram hexagone grille and the Matrix LED on the Sport Concept.
Like the Audi Sport quattro, the Audi Sport quattro concept was designed in the spirit of racing. None of its design solutions are an end unto themselves. Each is driven by a technical function, and several are an homage to the quattro models of the early 1980s. These include the angular, flat C-pillars and the rectangular double headlights featuring Audi’s groundbreaking Matrix LED technology, which will be available by the end of this year in the refreshed Audi A8.
Two very flat structures are visible inside the headlight. The wrap-around daytime running lights together with the central low-beam units and the Audi Matrix LED make for a sporty, determined look. The headlights and tail lights are a reinterpretation of lightweight construction. The headlights forsake fascia, exposing the LED heat sinks, while the tail lights reduce glass and housing to a minimum.
The LED high-beam unit of the Audi Matrix LED headlights is comprised of numerous individual diodes. The individual LEDs, which work in tandem with upstream lenses and reflectors, always deliver excellent illumination. They are activated, deactivated or dimmed individually according to the situation. With the number of LEDs, their arrangement and the size and design of the headlights, the new technology offers many fascinating possibilities.
Another design homage are the “blisters” above the fenders. The Audi designers have reinterpreted and strongly accentuated these lines. They give the body even greater emotional appeal and broad shoulders. Throughout the car, sharp contours frame tautly muscular surfaces. With their interplay between convex and concave curvatures, the engine hood, fenders and flanks define the athletic character of the Audi Sport quattro concept.
The front of the show car is characterized by the hexagonal single-frame grille with a new, sculpted grille insert, a typical element borrowed from racing. Its lower section is virtually vertical; the upper section follows the line of the engine hood. The low grille emphasizes the width of the car. Two large, vertical blades divide each of the large air inlets, and their form is taken up by the creases in the engine hood. The CFRP splitter is shifted far to the front, as on a race car. The grille is part of Audi’s new design philosophy and provides a first glimpse at the future design of the sporty production models.
The Concept is certainly beautiful fast and elegant to learn more about it be sure to check out Audi Press Release on the Sport Concept below or at SMADE MEDIA Press Release Achieves.
