North American automotive customers may not be familiar with the more compact Audi A3 numbers. Based on Volkswagen's B-Class Polo, the A1's overall length is over 14 inches shorter than the smaller Audi brand in North America. Audi was launched in late 2010 to attract a growing crowd of premium compact cars, and it soon launched the A1 with the best features offered by the German luxury car maker in its larger cars such as the A4 and even the new A7 Sportback. Audi has completely revamped its entry-level small cars, debuting the A1 clubsport quattro for Volkswagen's Austria Night at Wörtherseetour. Le concept-car Club-Going quattro de l'Audi A1

Creating the Audi A1 clubsport quattro, the German automaker developed the 2.5-liter TFSI five-powertrain currently used in the Audi TT RS. Optimized for performance beyond the limits of current production specifications, Audi has upgraded the turbocharger and intercooler to produce 503 PS (approximately 496 horsepower). Compared to the 2011 Audi A1 lineup, the 2.5-liter TFSI engine in the clubsport quattro version boasts a 314 horsepower advantage over the more powerful powertrain. Infusing the expertise of Audi's DTM series program, the A1 clubsport quattro's exhaust flows from well-positioned side pipes. A six-speed manual transmission, carbon-ceramic brakes and quattro all-wheel drive accompany the Audi A1 clubsport's impressive powertrain.

The Audi A1 clubsport quattro combines a series of exterior additions and modifications to the traditional B-segment car. Carbon-reinforced polymer materials are widely used by German engineers to create a blacked-out roof and front air outlets. A large roof spoiler completes the width of the A1 clubsport quattro enlarged by 60 millimeters (2.36 inches).

Pointed to the zenith of sporty compact and racing aesthetics, the Audi A1 clubsport quattro is given a basic right the look of a business like performance car. Trimmed in genuine carbon fiber and premium leather, the racing bucket seats found in the clubsport show car are transplanted from the Audi R8 GT. The performance-focused concept car forgoes electronic equipment but adds racing-style rocker switches and four-point front seat belts.

Electronically limited to 155 miles per hour, the Audi A1 clubsport's projected performance would come with lightning quick flashes of acceleration. In just 3.7 seconds, the modified Audi A1 can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour. According to Audi's estimates, it's very likely that this subcompact will overtake exotic cars such as the Lexus LFA or a Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0. Acceleration from 0 to 124 miles per hour can be accomplished in 10.9 seconds with the 496 horsepower Audi A1 clubsport quattro.

The Audi A1 clubsport quattro is yet another match for North American auto enthusiasts unable to simply identify with the base subcompact car. Perhaps we can take comfort in realizing that the physical Audi A1 clubsport quattro will be even further out of reach for small-car performance enthusiasts everywhere. The German automaker has no plans to take the vehicle beyond a show car presentation (at least in the real world). In the virtual world, the Audi A1 clubsport quattro can be experienced by anyone with a computer and an internet connection. A playable vehicle on Need for Speed ​​World (world.needforspeed.com), the situated performance feel would likely be responsible for the wear and tear on many keyboards and other computer peripherals.
