Remember the Audi Quattro Concept previewed by the German carmaker back in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show? Of course you do; this is one sexy, powerful ride that got more than just Audi aficionados' britches up in a bunch. While initially rumors pointed to the fact that this Concept would remain just that, German magazine Auto Zeitung is now reporting that Audi is preparing to bring it back for the Frankfurt Motor Show as the successor to the legendary 1980's sports car.  From the pictures, it looks like Audi is resurrecting the Sport Quattro of 1984 as we come up on its 30th Anniversary, packing it with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 capable of churning out 650-hp. New body work is also obvious, made-up of lightweight materials like magnesium, carbon fiber, and aluminum allowing this Audi to weigh in just under 3,000 lbs. The only downside is its sticker price, which is expected to be around $150k. Looks like it'll be worth every penny.
