Today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Audi snagged two impressive awards at the EyesOn Design Awards Ceremony. The Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro took one of the production vehicle category awards, and the four-door Audi Sportback concept scored a win in the concept category.

Audi's V-10 engine, which has been impressing us with its relentless torque and furious growl in models like the S6, motivates the R8 5.2 FSI quattro. The Sportback Concept, recently reviewed Bengt Halvorson, is rumored to be a preview of Audi's entry into the four-door coupe category currently occupied by the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Volkswagen CC. It is powered by a 3.0-liter CleanDiesel V-6 that pushes the concept to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds and basks in 406 lb-ft torque.

"The R8 illustrates Audi’s highest standards in performance, design, function, and quattro all-wheel drive," said Johan de Nysschen, Audi of America President.  “The Sportback concept also showed Audi’s future direction with form and function, most of which will be available to customers in the not-so-distant future.”

The R8 5.2 FSI quattro will be available in Europe in one of the firm's brash new Audi Terminals starting Spring 2009; U.S. availability is not yet set.
