[LIST][*]Audi presents the A1 clubsport quattro showcar at the annual Wörtherseetour meet (June 1 to 4) for Audi, SEAT, Skoda and VW fans[*] 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine with 503PS and 660Nm, 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds, 0-124mph in 10.9 seconds, governed 155mph top speed[*] Experience the Audi A1 clubsport quattro at world.needforspeed.com[/LIST]
A larger-than-life 503PS version of the smallest Audi to date makes its debut this week at Austria’s 30th annual Wörtherseetour meeting for fans of VW Group models. The one-off A1 clubsport quattro uses a heavily modified version of the RS 3 Sportback’s turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine to deliver electrifying performance which is headlined by figures including 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and 0-124mph in just 10.9 seconds.

The heart of the Audi A1 clubsport quattro is a classic Audi petrol engine – a five-cylinder unit displacing 2.5 litres with turbocharging and direct fuel injection. Compared with the version used in the Audi TT RS and RS 3 Sportback on which it is based, the output of the TFSI has been increased dramatically to 503PS and 660 Nm of torque. Maximum power is available between 2,500 and 5,300 rpm.

The turbocharger, intercooler, induction tract and the exhaust line have been systematically tuned for high performance. As on the Audi A4 DTM, the tailpipe is located on the left flank, just in front of the rear wheel.

Another area where the A1 clubsport quattro shines is in its overall weight of just 1,390 kilograms. This helps it to catapult from 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds, and from 0 to 124mph in just 10.9 seconds. The 50-70mph overtaking surge can be dispatched in fourth gear in just 2.4 seconds.

A six-speed manual transmission and quattro permanent all-wheel drive, both taken from the TT RS and enhanced, deliver the power to all four wheels. Top speed is governed at 155mph.

The Audi showcar rolls on 255/30 low-profile tyres mounted on 19-inch alloy wheels with a unique turbine design. Sitting behind the wheels are large, internally ventilated disc brakes. Up front, six-piston callipers grab perforated carbon fibre-ceramic discs. Large steel discs are mounted on the rear axle. The coilover suspension of the A1 clubsport quattro features adjustable compression and rebound damping.......... etc.

I was just about to make a thread about this car, good job i didn't. This car looks great and it has a manuel gearbox. They did well to get so much power from the engine considering it had 335bhp to nealy 500bhp, this engine must have a great power to Litter ratio, and it's 4WD. Shame their not making it but it wouldn't be right that Audi's hot small car was faster that their RS range and their R8, it just wouldn't be right.

It probably only has a manual because a DSG doesn't fit in the engine bay.

Good, but not as good as a Fabia 1.6 TDi.

Over 500 HP in a small car. Manual transmission. Rims look like old Ronal Turbo's.

Do want.
