    I simply think the car does not look that good on most pictures.
    The pictures that the car look good on, can be count on one hand.

    I wonder if we will see this design style in the next TT or in the next A5. ?

    It looks like the new "Quattro wil go into production in 2015, and "NOT" as a limited edition, but as a high volume production model on a shortened A6 floorplan.

    power to weight close to current r8 V8 but with 4 seats and less sexy. i guess someone will buy it. how will they differentiate it from the a5 coupe other than it is a hatchback?
    Past- A4, TT, S4

    Present- R8 V10

    Rumor has it that the next A5 will be Sportback only, like A7.

    "Das Design des in Frankfurt vorgestellten Prototypen will Hackenberg noch einmal schärfen – offenbar war er mit den Entwürfen, die noch unter dem zum Jahreswechsel zu Italdesign Giugiaro nach Italien wechselnden Designchef Wolfgang Egger entstanden, unzufrieden."

    Hackenberg was/is not happy with the design of the current quattro (designed under Wolfgang Egger) and he wants to "sharpen" the design a little bit for the production version.

    Let's hope he sharpens it more like the first Quattro Concept

    I hope they will sharpen the first quattro concept more, with more design elements from the "original quattro sport".

    Audi R5 and New quattro names are apparently referring to the same car.
    A front longitudinal engined quattro car based on a shortened A6 floorplan, placed between TT and R8.

    German quote from Auto Motor und Sport.

    R5- Wiederbelebung des Ur-Quattro Frontmotor-Sportwagen auf einer gekürzten A6-Plattform, mit Allradantrieb und Siebengang-S-Tronic.
    Dank der Carbon-Aluminium-Mischbauweise soll das Gewicht bei nur 1300 Kilogramm liegen.
    Mit Fünfzylinder: Für kraftvolles Vorankommen sorgt im R5 der 2,5-Liter-Fünfzylinder aus dem RS Q3.
    Dort leistet er 310 PS und verfügt über ein maximales Drehmoment von 420 Newtonmeter.

    Sport quattro concept to Production.

    First and foremost is the Sport quattro concept.
    The idea of a quattro concept first came to light while Michael Dick was at the post, though that original smaller, lighter 5-cylinder turbocharged coupe has evolved to a larger GT that would share more with the architecture of the next-generation A6/A7 range since it was reinvented last fall under the direction of Hackenberg.

    According to Top Gear, Hackenberg has stated that the original Sport quattro concept’s projected boutique status with $100K plus pricing would have to be adjusted in order for the car to see production.
    The way to do that, he suggests, is to add more of range of engines including cheaper offerings that could bring the price range lower and thus raise projected volume.
    This would have to be done in order to justify the level of investment necessary to build such a car.

    In order to build this, that means it would position between the TT and the R8… though where that leaves offerings like the RS 5 he didn’t say… or Top Gear didn’t mention if they’d asked.
    If it does get built, Top Gear suggests it would hit market around 2016-2017.
