Worthersee Tour 2012: Audi Q3 Red Track Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 17, 2012

At this year’s Wörthersee Tour, Audi will bring three custom Q3 models: the new Audi Q3 Red Track, the Audi Q3 Jinlong Yufeng or ‘Golden Dragon in the Wind’ and the Audi RS Q3 Concept. These models are quite different but their ”heart”remains the same: a five-cylinder TFSI engine delivering between 228 kW (310 hp) and 265 kW (360 hp).

The Audi Q3 Red Track was designed for winter-sport enthusiasts and features two pairs of Audi skis made from carbon fiber-reinforced polymer, found on the roof. Moreover, the vehicle comes with two hand lamps radiant heating elements and a thermos flask in the load area and the most interesting part is that these are supplied inductively with electric power.

Heatable seat cushions are integrated into the reversible load-area mat. The first visual impact with the car shows an Energy Red paint finish with golden pearl-effect particles. Furthermore, we see add-on body elements finished in matt grey quartz paint.

In the Singleframe radiator grille the aluminum struts are vertical and red panels partially blank off the air inlets. In the roof track we find two LED headlights. The interior is dominated by three colors – black, grey and red – and features seats upholstered in an innovative combination of leather and cloth.

Under the hood we find the powerful turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder TFSI engine delivering 250 kW (340 hp) and a maximum torque of 450 Nm (331.90 lb-ft). With these numbers, the vehicle is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 263 km/h (163.42 mph). As expected, the engine is bolted to a 7-speed S tronic transmission and the power is delivered to the wheels via the quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
