Well it took Audi around 15 years to turn the first mid engined Audi supercar concept into a reality. And even though the Audi R8 is a very different beast to the Avus concept they both share the same unmistakable Audi DNA.
The bodywork of the Avus was constructed almost entirely out of aluminium - a fact Audi was proud to show off - which is why it was left unpainted and instead polished to a mirror shine.
Mounted in the center of the car was a highly advanced W12, 6.0 litre engine which produced 509 horsepower. This power was fed to all four wheels using Audi's quattro AWD system and a 6 speed manual gearbox. Top speed of the Avus was a deeply impressive 210 mph.
