Last week Audi revealed the A3 Clubsport Quattro which is a new concept car they have come up with for this year’s Worthersee event. It is an intriguing concept as it is, in essence, a heavily tuned version of the A3 with a big, powerful engine.
That got the guys at X-Tomi Design thinking about giving the sort of treatment to other variants of the car, namely the RS3 Sportback. These are the results, and you have to say they look pretty good. The Clubsport Quattro Sportback definitely has more sporting credentials than the sedan version Audi has come up with.
Audi A3 Clubsport Quattro is not going into production as it is, but it will affect the styling of certain future models. This car’s massively flared wheel arches and the unique design of its bumpers will be seen on new RS models, albeit tamed down and restrained a bit.
Clubsport concept is powered the most powerful application of Audi’s five-cylinder turbo engine, developing 386 kW (525 hp) and 600 Nm of torque. Weighing about 1.5 tons, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 310 km/h (192.6 mph).
