Audi will reveal its new Audi TT Clubsport Turbo at this year’s Wörthersee Tour festival. It will produce almost 600 bhp and will go from 0-62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, due to its innovative five cylinder 2.5 TFSI engine with an electric bi-turbo.
The TT Clubsport Turbo has been inspired by the Audi 90 IMSA GTO race car from the late 1980s. This is visible due to its stripped-out interior, wide stance (it is 14 cm wider than before) and large rear wing. The power-boosted 2.5L TFSI produces 600 PS (592 bhp) and 600 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) of torque.
Due to its lightweight design, the overall weight of the car is just 1396 kg, helping it reach a top speed of 309 km/h (192 mph). Its electrically-driven compressor aids the car to cover 16 metres in the first 2.5 seconds of a sprint, 6 metres further than a comparable car without this technology.
In the interior, a protective roll cage, made of high-strength titanium tubes, makes the car rigid and safe. Lightweight bucket seats in the front have four-point harnesses, and are upholstered – on the current concept model – in coral orange Alcantara with contrasting stitching and piping.
The TT Clubsport Turbo will be seen at Wörthersee from May 13 to 16.
