Audi A1 Clubsport

Audi is generally known as a sensible car maker. But sometimes they do things that are not that sensible, but quite awesome.

Check out this massively vulgar A1 Clubsport concept that’s been prepared for the 2011 W√∂rtherseetour meet in Austria. The looks of it obviously indicate something big is going on under the bonnet, but how big? Well, thanks to a heavily revised 2.5 liter five-cylinder turbo, it has a colossal 503PS and 660Nm of torque, which translates into performance figures of 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and 0-124mph in just 10.9 seconds, and a limited top speed of 155 mph.

Visually, the exquisitely finished show car makes no secret of its potential. The body has a Glacier White matte paint finish, with accents provided by many add-on parts. The roof arch in high-gloss black supports a roof made of carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP), and the four rings at the front of the car are solid aluminium.

Inside, The centre console and the seats are covered in fine leather upholstery with tone-on-tone stitching. The selector lever is made of aluminium; the caps of the pedals and the surface of the footrest are made of stainless steel. Red loops replace the handles on the doors, the glove box and the covers of the storage compartments.

Too bad it’s just a concept and not an actual production model.
