Winters can be miserable and winters can be aspirational. Back home in Maryland there is snow everywhere. So the day drifts patiently into gloom if you allow it. However, in Sicily, Italy there are wondrous mountains, tight, winding roads, succulent recipes and fresh breezes from the Mediterranean Sea to jolt enthusiasm into your day. There was also the all-new 2012 Audi A6 which Automotive Rhythms was able to sample in every aspect like a football team at a buffet. The German sports sedan represents a technological roadmap of where the brand has been and where it decidedly is headed; undeniably in the right direction.

The quattro concept, named after Audi’s incredible permanent all-wheel-drive technology, originally made its international debut 30 years ago. The ‘George Jetson’ styled quattro concept presents a hyperactive direction for the German auto manufacturer. Featuring a 408-hp, 5-cylinder turbo-charged engine and a lightweight, yet balanced aluminum structure, the quattro concept achieves a 9.48 lb per hp ratio, putting it in the same speed stratosphere as the R8 V10 and its 525 German horses. See you at the finish line!
