Audi Sport Quattro must occupy space between TT and R8

After many doubts, Audi seems to have a plan for the concept Quattro Sport : put it into production with a V8 engine with top of the line specifications, also offering smaller engines and cheaper versions of the model for sale.

This is because a single version, even more high-performance, would not provide sufficient financial return on investment. "We use a powerful engine to highlight it. But the goal is to have more volume. It takes a big investment, so it makes sense to use other engines," said Ulrich Hackenberg, chief engineer of the brand, the magazine Top Gear.

The publication also speculated that after the information disclosed by Hackenberg, the Sport Quattro production would occupy the space between the TT and R8, both with respect to performance as the question concerning the prices.
