The Audi Nuvolari quattro (also known as the Audi Lisvina) was a concept car created by German automobile maker Audi. This vehicle was first introduced at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show. It was what Audi planned to become the vision of their next grand tourer (GT) vehicle. It was the second of three concept cars designed by Audi and shown in 2003, after the Pikes Peak quattro and ahead of the Le Mans quattro.[1][2]

The Nuvolari quattro had a 5.0 L twin-turbocharged V10 Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) engine rated at 441 kW (600 PS; 591 bhp). Torque on the Nuvolari quattro was rated at 750 N⋅m (553 lbf⋅ft). The Nuvolari quattro used Audi's Torsen-based quattro permanent four-wheel drive system.

The Nuvolari quattro was named after one of the most famous and legendary race car drivers of all time, Tazio Nuvolari. Nuvolari gained 61 Grand Prix victories and died in 1953. Fifty years after his death, the Audi Nuvolari quattro was created in honour of his memory.

Audi subsequently developed the Nuvolari quattro into the new Audi A5 range.

This car is also included in the 2005 Polyphony Digital' game, Gran Turismo 4. It is unlocked by reaching 25% game completion.
