Audi brings the TT Clubsport Turbo Concept at Worthersee Tour 2015

At the Worthersee Tour 2015, Audi unveiled the TT Clubsport Turbo Concept, a vehicle that takes its inspiration from the legendary Audi 90 IMSA GTO of the late 1980s. According to the German manufacturer, the vehicle is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI five-cylinder petrol engine that produces 600 hp (441 kW) and 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) of torque.

All that power is transferred via a manual six-speed transmission and the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, that can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, while top speed is 310 km/h (192.6 mph).

Thanks to the electrically driven compressor, the Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept is able to cover up to 16 meters (52.5 ft) within the first 2.5 seconds, 6 meters (19.7 ft) more than a comparable car without this innovation.
