    The original Quattro was one of my dreams cars back in the 80s. I think this new one may also make that list.

    Was hoping for a more bad-[non-permissible content removed] body style, but over all not bad at all.

    Total let down! Not remotely as interesting as all the original sketches and hype. You'd have to a total die hard to buy this thing at the ridiculous price to put next to your two R8s. Originally they were talking under 3000 lbs, not more than 4k! Not to mention 1 full second slower than a 911 turbo S to 62. What a gyp.

    Odd, my math has 552 + 148 = 700, not 690. You might want to check that out...

    Other than that, not a bad looking concept.

    Not a huge fan. Much preferred the previous quattro concept with the turbo 5, 6 speed manual and 2800 lb weight. That was an interesting concept, and would have been quite unique in the marketplace.

    This is just an overweight, overpowered pig of a supercar, that is sure to be overpriced as well. Certainly nothing special. Why would I want this over either an RS7 or an R8, when it will probably cost more than both?

    You can't add power or torque like that for hybrids because peak figures for the two motors come at different RPMs.

    That's why the torque figures don't add up either: 516 + 295 = 1,032 lb-ft.. yet official peak figure is 590 lb-ft.
