At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Audi is going to unveil the new Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight concept. The concept is immediately recognizable as an updated version of the Sport Quattro concept that debuted at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, but with updated lighting technology.
The Sport Quattro Laserlight concept gets dual headlights with matrix LED and laser light technologies. Two low-profile trapezoidal elements are visible within the headlights – the outer one generates the low beam light using matrix LEDs and an aperture mask, while the inner element produces laser light for high-beam functionality. According to Audi, the laser lights can illuminate a distance that is twice as far as LED high bean lights.
Just like the Sport Quattro concept, the Sport Quattro Laserlight concept is powered by a plug-in hybrid system that generates a total 700 horsepower and 590 lb-ft. of torque. A 4.0L V8 is mated to an electric motor and an eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The plug-in hybrid system can power the concept up to 31 miles in EV mode and the concept averages 94 mpg on the EU cycle.
