Audi has unveiled a spectacular A3 Clubsport Quattro Concept, which will make public debut at the 2014 Wörthersee Motor Show starting on May 28th. It is based on the S3 Sedan and comes with incredible engine and other performance upgrades.
2014 Audi A3 Clubposrt Quattro Concept is powered by a 2.5 liter five-cylinder TFSI engine with epic 525HP (386 kW) and 600Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. Compared to the "tiny" 2.0 liter TFSI and its 300HP (221 kW) and 420Nm (310 lb-ft), the new power unit is sensational. The performance is more than scary – 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h (193 mph). The curb weight of the car is just 1,527 kg (3,366 lbs), so it has a power-to-weight ratio of 343HP / ton. The power is put on the road through Quattro AWD (all-wheel drive) system and a 7-speed S-tronic gearbox featuring launch control.
Other highlights include an improved suspension and lowered ride height by 10mm. There is also a set of enormous 9.5J x 21" alloy wheels fitted with 275/25 R21. Of course, the manufacturer has fitted the performance sedan with carbon fiber ceramic brake system - 370 millimeters discs.
The exterior boasts impressive Magnetic Blue paint scheme and an aggressive body kit including CFRP front blade and side sills as well as a big rear diffuser and dual oval exhaust pipes. The popular Matrix LED headlights are also present.
The interior features bucket seats equipped with four-point seatbelts. The luggage compartment is present only to fit your racing helmets (two).
