The Audi Avus quattro was a "supercar-styled" concept car from the German car manufacturer, Audi. It was first introduced at the 1991 Tokyo Motor Show. The Avus quattro had an aluminum exterior, which made it a lightweight, sleek and safer automobile. The Avus quattro's engine was supposed to be a 6.0 L 60-valve 12-cylinder engine producing 509 hp (380 kW), capable of accelerating the car from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in about 3 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h). The exact car shown at the Tokyo Motor Show, however, had a dummy made of carefully painted wood and plastic for an engine because at the time, such a powertrain was still in development; Audi-made W12 engines were not available to buyers until Audi presented its flagship A8 a few years later. The Avus quattro is now on display at Audi's museum in Ingolstadt, Germany.
