The Audi Avus Quattro was a concept car from the German car manufacturer, Audi. It was first introduced at the 1991 Tokyo Motor Show. The Avus Quattro had an aluminum exterior, which made it a lightweight, sleek and safer automobile.
The Avus Quattro's engine was supposed to be a 6.0 L 60-valve 12-cylinder engine producing 509 hp, capable of accelerating the car from 0 to 60 mph in about 3 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph. The exact car shown at the Tokyo Motor Show, however, had a dummy made of carefully painted wood and plastic for an engine because at the time, such a powertrain was still in development; Audi-made W12 engines were not available to buyers until Audi presented its flagship A8 a few years later.
The Avus Quattro is now on display at Audi's museum in Ingolstadt, Germany.
