Will The Next Audi RS3 Look Like This Clubsport Quattro Concept?

2016 audi rs3 clubsport quattro grille

This small sedan may look a mostly ordinary from afar, but this Audi Clubsport Quattro concept packs outstanding numbers and perhaps even hits at what the 2016 Audi RS3 will look like.  Manufacturer claims a 192 MPH top speed for this sports sedan.  How is this possible?  The secret is under the hood in the form of a 2.5L turbocharged five cylinder motor capable of 517.9 horsepower and 442.5 lb-ft of torque.


The power is sent to the Quattro all-wheel-drive system via a 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission.  There is a launch control mode and it will send you 0-62 MPH in 3.6 seconds.  Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg of Audi says that every aspect: power, dynamics, sound, and design – have been pushed to the limit with this show car.

You can see the car in person at the annual Wörthersee Meeting in Reifnitz, Germany from May 28th – 31st, 2014.
