Welcome to Too Awesome For Production, where I highlight the greatest concept cars of all time. I will continue to do this until I get bored or run out of ideas.
The Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept is the greatest concept car of the past decade. Do not try and argue, just look:
Like a modern version of Porsche’s 959 Dakar racer, the Nanuk is basically a lifted, diesel powered Audi R8. Which probably makes it worse than an R8 to drive, and all for off-road ability that not a single prospective owner would ever use. But who cares? When the car is this cool?
It has a 5.0 liter triple turbo diesel V10 that makes 536 horsepower and a whopping 738 lb/ft of torque. It will go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds, and on to a top speed of 190. And I have to stop now, before I drool all over the laptop I am typing this on.
