Power comes from Audi’s 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine – currently discovered in the RS Q3 – as well as heavily revised for the idea to create 518bhp, with torque rising to 600Nm. A larger turbocharger, revised intake as well as exhaust system as well as reworked intercooler are just a few of the adjustments assisting increase the A3 Clubsport Quattro’s output.
While it’s relatively unlikely we’ll see the engine make it’s method over to the new RS3 in this precise form, according to Audi board of administration member Dr Ulrich Hackenberg, the idea shows “how much stylish prospective there is in the A3 family” as well as in “top-of-the-line engines such as the 2.5 TFSI.”
In the A3 Clubsport Quattro, this power will be put down through a seven-speed double grasp S-tronic gearbox as well as long-term quattro all-wheel system. All in, Audi declares accelerating from 0-62mph will take a measly 3.6 seconds, with the screen cars and truck topping out just timid of 193mph.
