Subcompact Supercar: Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro Concept
What's not to love about a 500 horsepower direct-injected 2.5-liter turbocharged five cylinder engine in a small car? The answer is nothing. Audi is claiming the Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro Concept will go 0–60 in 3.7 seconds, 0–125 in less than 11 seconds, and a top speed of 155 MPH. Wow. It will wear 19" wheels wrapped in 255/30/19 tires, and wears a matte finish.
Although a concept, you'll be able to drive the car ... in a video game. Need For Speed World will have the A1 Clubsport available as rental when the game bows tomorrow (June 1). No word on when the vehicle will make its in-person debut.
Thanks to Thomas for the tip!
