Based on the S3 sedan, the A3 clubsport quattro concept is powered by the same turbocharged 2.5L five-cylinder engine as the RS Q3. In the A3 clubsport quattro concept, the five-cylinder generates 525-hp and 442 lb-ft. of torque. That’s enough power to accelerate the A3 clubsport quattro concept from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 192 mph.

The 2.5L engine is mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission and all that power is sent to all four wheels via Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system. The concept also features a launch control function and bigger brakes than the S3.

Audi says that the concept is merely a show car with its lowered suspension, more aggressive bumpers and 21-inch alloy wheels. But what Audi may not be telling us, is that this could be a preview of the next RS3.
