Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro Unleashed

Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro

At the moment, the closest thing to an Audi RS1 is this Clubsport Quattro, which is being exhibited this week at the 2011 Worthersee Tour. The car is motivated by a 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter TFSI engine that has been heavily modified in order to produce 496 hp (503 PS / 370 kW) and a peak torque of 486 lb.-ft (660 Nm).

Thanks to its low curb weight of only 3,064 lb (1,390 kg), this one-off Audi A1 can do the 0-62 mph sprint in only 3.7 seconds and it needs a mere 10.9 seconds to hit 200 km/h from start. The top speed has been electronically limited by Audi to “only” 155 mph (250 km/h).

That powerful engine is linked to a 6-speed manual transmission that sends the power to all the wheels thanks to the Quattro permanent AWD system. This technology has been borrowed from the sexy TT RS model but Audi’s engineers had to tweak it a little bit.

From the outside of this Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro, we notice that full aerodynamic bodykit that broadens the car in comparison to the standard model by 2.36 inches (60 mm). The car sits on 19-inch alloy rims that have been covered with 255/30/R19 low-profile rubber. Its coilover suspension features rebound damping and adjustable compression.

As far as the interior cabin is concerned, this special A1 features a leather finish for the seats and the center console. Instead of the regular rear bench, Audi’s engineers have fitted the car with a body-stiffening crossbar and you can place your racing helmets in specially-designed storage spaces.
