The Audi TT clubsport turbo has a power-boosted 2.5 TFSI engine with very impressive performance data. From 2,480 cc of displacement, the five-cylinder engine produces 441 kW (600 hp) of power and 650 Nm of torque, the latter from 3,000 to 7,000 rpm. This means that it produces 176 kW (240 hp) and 260 Nm per liter of displacement. The Power is transferred via a manual six-speed transmission.
Thanks to systematic lightweight design, the TT clubsport turbo show car has an unladen weight of just 1,396 kg. The car completes the standard sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and its top speed is 310 km/h. The TT clubsport turbo plays out its big advantage over the first few meters of a sprint. Its electrically driven compressor lets it cover up to 16 meters within the first 2.5 seconds – which is six meters further than a comparable car without this innovation. That is a difference of around one and one-half car lengths.
