Audi Nanuk quattro concept revealed - supercar meets crossover

Remember the Lamborghini powered Italdesign Giugiaro Parcour?

Audi has now revealed their answer to this wild concept called Nanuk quattro concept. Making its debut today at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Nanuk quattro concept is a two-seater combining the characteristics of a crossover and supercar.

The Audi Nanuk quattro concept is 4541mm long, 1990mm wide and 1337mm tall, with a 2710mm wheelbase. The body structure is made from aluminum Audi Space Frame with carbon fiber-reinforced polymer components featuring an Extreme Red finish.

Power comes from an all-new 544bhp twin-turbo V10 5.0-litre TDI engine with 1,000Nm of torque mounted longitudinally in front of the rear axle. Linked to an upgraded 7-speed S tronic gearbox, the Nanuk quattro weighs 1,900 kg and goes from 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 189mph.

Weighing close to 2,000kg, the concept has a pretty impressive fuel economy. According to Audi it delivers 36.2mpg thanks to a new oil pump and thermal management system that can separate cooling loops.

There is also an air suspension that has electronically-controlled dampers which allow the driver to manually adjust ground clearance from normal to lower (30mm) and higher (40mm).

All this rides on huge 22-inch wheels fitted with 235/50 tyres at the front axle and 295/45 at the back.
