Word has it Audi's Quattro Sport successor could make its public debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show scheduled later this year.
According to German website Auto Zeitung, the new Sport Quattro will make use of several lightweight components, including carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and magnesium for a total weight of only 1,300 kilograms (2,866 pounds).

Also, our source claims the new vehicle will be more powerful than the Quattro concept thanks to a twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 650 HP, which could translate into a 0 to 100 km/h time of only 3.4 seconds. A sport quattro rear differential, a sports suspension with adaptive dampers and carbon-ceramic brakes are also likely to be offered.

If the report proves to be true, the Audi Sport Quattro should cost at least €115,000 ($154,000 / £98,000).

The original Audi Sport Quattro, which was developed for WRC Group B homologation and offered as a road car in limited numbers, turns celebrates 30 years in 2014.
