2011 Wörthersee: Audi A1 clubsport quattro with 500hp revealed image

The Audi A1 clubsport quattro is a one-off vehicle built to the limits of technology for breathtaking dynamics.

The power for the A1 clubsport Quattro comes from a five-cylinder unit displacing 2.5 liters 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 370 kW (503 hp) and 660 Nm (486.79 lb-ft) of torque. Maximum power is available between 2,500 and 5,300 rpm.

And weighing just 1,390 kilograms (3,064 lb), the numbers are great for what you can imagine to be a very nimble A1. 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) comes in at 3.7 seconds. The 0 to 200 km/h (124.27 mph) sprint takes 10.9 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155.34 mph).

The turbocharger, intercooler, admission 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.

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.

The Wörtherseetour 2011 takes place in Reifnitz, Austria from June 1 – 4.
