Another Audi concept makes way in Frankfurt

The Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept was launched earlier in Frankfurt. The concept show car was a result of Audi’s collaboration with the designers from Italdesign Giugiaro.

The two-seat crossover concept is powered by a newly developed V10 TDI installed longitudinally in front of the rear axle. The engine is capable of 544 PS and 1,000 Nm of torque with its twin-turbo register charging unit controlled via the Audi valvelift system. This diesel engine is paired with a 7-speed S tronic located behind the engine. With a curb weight of 1,900 kg, it can go from 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 305 km/h. Despite the power, the Nanuk maintains a consumption of 13 km/l.

The Nanuk is equipped with an adaptive air suspension with electronically controlled dampers. The driver can manually adjust the ground clearance as normal, 30 mm lower, or 40 mm higher. The system also controls the level of the body itself based on the driving speed and the predictive route data from the navigation system.

The Nanuk Quattroconcept is 4,541 mm long, 1,990 mm wide, and 1,337 mm tall. It uses the Audi Space Frame just like the other new Audi models that came out in Frankfurt and also uses components made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer.

With the unannounced revelation of the Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept, should we expect more Audi  collaborations waiting in the near future?
