The 2003 Audi Nuvolari Concept car was created by German automobile maker Audi. It was first introduced at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show. Audi planned it 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.

The Nuvolari had a 5.0 L twin-turbocharged V10 Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) engine rated at 441 kW (600 PS; 591 bhp). Torque on the car was rated at 750 Nm (553 ftlbf). The Nuvolari used Audi's Torsen-based quattro permanent four-wheel drive system. It could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in about 4.1 seconds. Top speed was electronically governed to 250 km/h (160 mph).

The Nuvolari, also called 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 this concept car into the new A5 and S5 range.
