Audi announces its lineup for 2014 Wörthersee

Besides the very impressive A3 clubsport quattro concept, Audi will be bringing to the 2014 Wörthersee show numerous other models which will be on display between 28 and 31 of May. They will also be showcasing the S1 motivated by the familiar 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter TFSI engine rated at 231 PS and 370 Nm. It’s enough to propel the car to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds before hitting a maximum speed of 250 km/h. Despite the impressive performances, the S3 manages to remain quite frugal as it has a fuel consumption of only 7 liters / 100 km with corresponding CO2 emissions of 162 g/km.

Also on display is going to be the S3 Cabriolet which tips the scales at 1,620 kg and comes with a 2.0 TFSI motor outputting 300 PS and 380 Nm. The 0-100 km/h sprint takes a mere 5.4 seconds while the top speed has been electronically-limited at 250 km/h.

Up next on the list is the S3 Sedan upon which the aforementioned clubsport quattro concept is based on. This one weighs 1,460 kg and has a 2.0 TFSI churning 300 PS and 380 Nm sent to the road via an S tronic gearbox. It will consume only 6.9 liters / 100 km and do 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, more than enough for a vehicle in this segment.

There’s also the RS5 Coupe with its V8 4.2-liter naturally-aspirated engine pumping out 420 PS, enough for a sprint to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h or an optionally available 280 km/h.

The RS6 Avant will also be at 2014 Wörthersee with its 4.0 TFSI delivering 560 PS and enabling the hot wagon to hit 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. It benefits from cylinder on demand technology that can turn off four of the cylinders during light to medium loads, helping the model average 9.8 liters / 100 km.

Last but not least, the Audi R8 V10 Spyder will be packing its ten-cylinder engine to 2014 Wörthersee that unleashes 525 PS and 530 Nm sent to the ground with help from an S tronic gearbox. The car needs 3.8 seconds until 100 km/h and can do a top speed of 311 km/h.
