Sport Quattro concept produces 700 hp

Audi has officially unveiled a new concept car in Berlin called the Sport Quattro. The vehicle is a two door coupe and uses a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The total power of the hybrid powertrain is 700 hp. The concept car has a wheelbase of 109.61 inches and is 181.18 inches long.

It uses Audi's new Matrix LED technology headlights that will be available by the end of the year in a production automobile. The vehicle is powered by a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine producing 560 hp and 516.29 pounds-foot of torque.

The electric motor is located between the engine and transmission and produces 100 kW and 295 pound-foot of torque on its own. The car is capable of driving 31 miles on electricity alone. The top speed is estimated at 189 mph and the car should be able to hit 62 mph in 3.7 seconds.

Stuttgart in the Middle: Driving Porsche’s 918 Spyder, Cayman and Boxster GTS at Laguna Seca

Sep 2 2014 11:26am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The thing was impossible to parse in two quick laps. And the story’s been told and retold by practically every journalist who has driven the cerebrum-denting 918 Spyder. “There I was at [famous racetrack], chasing a very experienced racing driver caning a 911 Turbo S. And dude couldn’t shake me!” Porsche had invited us out to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to celebrate the launch of the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS, with a session in the 918 as the carrot at the end of the stick. Sp ...

2015 Infiniti Q70L

Sep 2 2014 11:06am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Sedan, Infiniti, Luxury, Quick Spins A quick look at a scatter plot that charts rear legroom against luxury sedan MSRPs reveals a dearth of spacious bargains - few, if any, luxury sedans offer exceptionally spacious rear accommodations at a relatively low starting price. To fill the vacuum, Infiniti has made its Q70 available in a Q70L variant - in English, long wheelbase - for 2015. The artist formerly known as the Infiniti M has been available i ...

Looking for a few (million) good Jalops

Sep 2 2014 9:45am CDT | Source: Jalopnik

A bit of a surprise: with 30-odd owners responding, absolutely no repairs have been reported for the 2014 Audi A4 (and related models) through TrueDelta's car reliability survey, which now covers through June 2014. Among the 2014s, only the Toyota Camry has a similarly spotless record. While other German cars aren't quite this reliable, a surprising number are now close, at least during the first year or two, maybe three. This improved reliability helps explain why Audi has ...

Car Review: 2015 Infiniti Q70

Sep 2 2014 7:43am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

FORESTBURGH, NEW YORK — Dissecting the evolving nomenclature of the new Infiniti flagship sedan lineup, one can’t help but be reminded of the single letter characters of a James Bond movie. Only, in Infiniti’s case, M has become Q. In fact, as of last year, all Infiniti vehicles, from sporty coupes through to hulking SUVs, have become Q. Even the ones that weren’t M. Confused? You’re not alone. Such is the peril of an automaker renaming long-established and i ...
