Innovative New Audi TT Clubsport Turbo

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.
