tribute to the Audi Sport Quattro


One could believe in a style study, resulting from the imagination of a designer who would like to make the buzz on social networks. But no you are not dreaming, the EL1 should see the light of day, under the “E-Legend” badge however. And not from the Ring mark.

A few years ago, Audi had ventured to imagine an heir to its legendary sports car by presenting the Quattro Concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show then the Sport Quattro Concept at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

But it will ultimately be the new German manufacturer E-Legend who will recover this privilege by presenting its first model. For the time being, the EL1 still only exists in virtual form, but you have in front of you the modern vision of the Audi Sport Quattro which delighted rally enthusiasts in the 1980s.

Still virtual

Don’t be fooled by its classic silhouette and not exactly aerodynamic at first glance. Do not be fooled either by its three air vents at the base of the hood, or by its rally rims with central nuts … The EL1 is a 100% electric coupe. It will be powered by three engines (one on the front axle and two at the rear) developing a combined power of 816 hp.

This operates a monocoque carbon fiber chassis on which rests a polymer / carbon composite (CFRP) body. The manufacturer announces that the engines will be powered by a 90 kWh battery and that the vehicle should weigh around 1,680 kg. What allow it to shoot down the 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds and the 0 to 200 km / h in less than 10 seconds. We are also talking about a top speed of 255 km / h and a range of 400 km.

E-Legend is simply aiming for a new record on the Nordschleife. The manufacturer also promises that the EL1 should be able to complete two full laps of the north loop of the Nürburgring before its performance suffers.

Unfortunately, this EL1 won’t be for everyone. E-Legend plans to sell 30 copies of the EL1 at a unit price of one million euros. If you have 890,000 euros before tax in your pocket, be aware that pre-reservations are already open. Otherwise, the company also offers shares of its capital at a unit price of 290 euros. It remains to be seen whether E-Legend will manage to raise enough funds to design its project. For information, two other electric models – in the same vein – are also in the boxes. We are talking in particular of a Lancia Stratos HF Stradale… In short, we would like to see them, so take out your check books please!
