Audi consistently puts on a acceptable appearance for Paris. I still bethink how aflame I was witnessing the R8 for the aboriginal time at Paris 2006. The four rings took their accepted atom at the Porte de Versailles this year and their angle was one of the added active ones, acknowledgment to two nice concepts. The aboriginal is an electric sports car alleged e-tron Spyder and the additional is aggressive by a fable – the quattro concept.
The e-tron Spyder is a bunched accessible top sports car with constituent amalgam drive. The powertrain combines a 300 hp/650 Nm 3.0-litre TDI agent with two asynchronous electric motors active the advanced axle. These motors accept a absolute achievement of 64 kW (88 hp) and aiguille torque of 352 Nm. This torque balance has aloof 1,450 kg to cull (aluminium accelerated Audi Space Frame body), which translates to abundant achievement – 0-100 km/h is done in 4.4 abnormal while absolute top acceleration is college than the absolute 250 km/h. Consumption? Audi quotes aloof 2.2 litres per 100 km on average!
Many will be acquisitive they body the e-tron, but added still will be absent of this, the quattro concept. 30 years ago at the Geneva show, Audi apparent what became a fable – THE Ur-quattro – and this car is declared to be a affected estimation of that. Painted in Col de Turini White, the quattro abstraction is powered by a 408 hp adaptation of the TT RS’ 2.5L five-cylinder TFSI engine. Of course, drive goes to all auto via the latest adaptation of quattro with self-locking crown-gear centre animosity and torque vectoring. 0-100 km/h is beneath four seconds.
