Audi Builds A3 Clubsport Quattro Concept in New Video

Audi is offering an even closer look at the A3 Clubsport Quattro Concept in a new series of videos.

The German automaker has officially debuted the sedan at the 2014 Worthersee Tour, and with it, a collection of images and a pair of videos. Essentially previewing the upcoming Audi RS3, the A3 Clubsport Quattro concept is powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine churning an impressive 525 hp and 442.5 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant is paired to a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and the company’s quattro all-wheel drive system.

What the videos show off that isn’t obvious in the photos is the concept’s huge air brake that is electrohydraulic actuated and works while the vehicle is on the road. According to the German automaker, the air brake “reduces the stopping distance by around twelve meters (39.4 feet),” at a speed of 155 mph. Though in concept form the A3 Clubsport Quattro is capable of topping out at 193 mph and accelerates to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds, the production RS3 will likely be toned down.
