Audi might ditch the Quattro for hyper-performance cars

Audi might ditch the Quattro for hyper-performance cars

Audi might ditch the Quattro all-wheel drive technology in favour of the classic front-engine rear wheel drive setup in an attempt to win over enthusiasts who prefer a bit more flair and fun over absolute speed.

In terms of absolute pace, the Quattro all-wheel drive system is leagues ahead of the two-wheel drive counterparts, because it has twice as much as traction at its disposal. The latest four-wheel drive systems, paired with four-wheels steering, make cars carry mind-bending speeds through corners without any drama.

It is a known fact that very few owners of performance cars take it to its absolute limits below which, these tech marvels are a tad boring. The front-engine rear-wheel drive setup with the modern power figures is quite dangerous at high speeds but at moderate speeds, it is much livelier which seems to be the reason why Audi Is contemplating building rear-wheel drive performance cars as well.

Audi has recently renamed Quattro GmbH to Audi Sport, which comes as a precursor to the tectonic shift in Audi ideology. This move might be in the making to take on BMW and Mercedes sports cars that are still offered as rear-wheel drive only. The rear-wheel drive setups might be limited to the RS series of cars by Audi with the intermediate S series continuing with its four-wheel ways.
