Audi and Need for Speed have produced a video showing off what went into building the Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro show car. The concept, which is currently on display at the annual Wörthersee tour festival, has undoubtedly left many Audi fans drooling over the pint-sized supercar.
The project, dubbed W11, starts with a basic A1 that is mercilessly hacked to make room for the 2.5-liter inline-five TFSI engine from the TT RS and RS3; here the engine is tuned to put out 496 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque. Audi claims that the combination of the tiny car with the monster engine results in a 0-62 mph time of just 3.7 seconds.
A custom paint job completes the W11 project along with carbon-ceramic brakes, 19-inch wheels, a roll cage, carbon-fiber bucket seats, and requisite race gauges. Audi has no plans to produce the pint-sized, all-wheel drive track thrasher, but could some elements of Clubsport spill over to street version of the A1? It’s possible and we will eagerly wait and see; until then, check out the making-of video below.
