Audi TT Clubsport Turbo concept revealed with a 592bhp e-turbo engine

Audi has unveiled the TT clubsport turbo concept that will debut later this week at Wörthersee.

The conceptual TT Clubsport Turbo features a 5-cylinder, 2.5-litre TFSI engine with an electric turbo which helps the motor produce 592bhp and 479 lb-ft of torque, linked to a six-speed manual transmission with power sent to quattro all-wheel drive.

All that power and torque is good enough to take the car from 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 192mph.

The concept covers 16 metres in 2.5 seconds, which is 6 metres more than a production model equipped with a standard 2.5-litre TFSI.

The TT Clubsport Turbo concept weighs 1,396kg and rides on 20-inch six-twin spoke alloys fitted with 275/30 tyres.

All that power is stopped with carbon ceramic brakes.

When comparing to the standard TT, the concept is 14cm wider, has a more aggressive design and boasts a big manually adjustable rear wing.

The interior features a roll cage made from ultra-high strength titanium tubes, lightweight race-spec bucket seats with four-point harnesses, carbon fibre reinforced plastic, black Alcantara and coral orange Alcantara touches.

Don’t expect to see this hardcore TT in production, but according to development chief Ulrich Hackenberg the technology is being “close to production readiness in our diesel engines.” Diesel engines first and petrol engines will eventually follow later.
