this Audi Quattro concept:

That car is a whole mess of copied ideas. Those rims look identical to the challenger srt8 along with the brembo brakes and it has the body of a 2g tC. It's pretty cool and I'd be down for a car with awd some big brembos and more power but i'd rather just mod my tC and be original . Either way cool find!

I work for Audi as a tech. Audi sure has stepped their game up. Most of their new stuff is legit now. The Quattro concept is paying homage to the Audi Quattro from the 80's. I think they did a pretty good job with the concept. I'm interested to see the execution of it when/if it makes it to production.

Lets also keep in mind cost effectiveness. Scion -economy... Audi- luxury... For some odd reason, they make you pay alot more for luxury.

Very beautiful car though...

i'm saying, if the only change is the badge for ppl to confuse a scion for an audi that will be in the favor of the scion.

I just realized that they basically took an LFA front end and a tC2 rear end and mashed it together.

Didn't they lose one of their head design gurus to Hyundai? Maybe they hired the old Hyundai designers who specialized in copying the work of others, and this is what they chugged out. Not a bad looking car, but not very inspiring as well.

And looking at the other pictures... is it just me or does this car make the people's head look really big when they are inside the car?

It won't be long when some aftermarket body kit company, like Extreme Dimensions, designs something similar to Audi's styling, LOL. And they will name it M-Power 2 kit. ha ha.
