Audi Sportback Concept [Slideshow]By Staff


audi-sportback-concept

This car needs to move from the concept stages to the production stages. After seeing something like this, it is set in stone that I need to save up so that I can get myself one in the future! Audi’s corporate motto is Vorsprung durch Technik, meaning “Advancement through Technology.” Follow us so we can show you just what they mean by their strong company motto!

First shown in the Detroit Motor show, the Audi Sportback concept is markedly futuristic. Power is provided by the world’s cleanest diesel technology: the 3.0-liter V6 TDI clean diesel almost completely eliminates nitrogen oxides. This engine already meets the emissions limits of all 50 U.S. states and the EU6 standard scheduled to take effect in 2014. And numerous measures to ensure top efficiency mean that the Audi Sportback concept is expected to achieve impressive fuel consumption figures of 5.9 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (39.87 US mpg). Do I need to repeat that?

This baby will have a V6 engine turbocharged, pumping 225 horses, top speed of 152mph and 0-60 time under 7 seconds. That is only if they decide to produce this car. Enjoy the slideshow below, its one of my favorites:
