Audi has unveiled a brand new concept called TT clubsport quattro which will be shown in a few days at Wörthersee. Its heart and soul is the company’s iconic 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine but instead of a single turbocharger it gets a bi-turbo system which has boosted total output to a jaw-dropping 600 hp and 650 Nm of torque. The added oomph was possible by installing an electric turbocharger which works during the engine’s low rpm range while the conventional turbo kicks in later on.
Weighing just 1,396 kg, the concept needs a mere 3.6 seconds until 100 km/h and tops out at 310 km/h. The engine’s power is transferred to a quattro all-wheel drive system with help from a six-speed manual transmission. The Audi TT clubsport quattro concept sits on 20-inch wheels wrapped around in 275/30 tires while to stop efficiently it gets carbon fiber ceramic discs.
The more aggressive body has made the vehicle 14cm wider than the regular TT while at the back there’s a manually-adjustable CFRP wing. According to Audi, the impressive engine is almost ready to be fitted in a production car, but chances are we will have to wait at least another two years.
