Mixing a small, hatchback design with race track-ready specs, the Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro($TBA) looks to be a blast. Powered by a five-cylinder turbocharged engine pumping out 503 hp, the Clubsport can rocket from 0-62 in just 3.7 seconds, and reach a governed top speed of 155 mph. Other features include a high-performance exhaust that outlets in front to the rear left wheel, a six-speed manual transmission, quattro permanent all-wheel drive, 19-inch alloy wheels with a turbine design, a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer roof with double-wing spoiler, and an interior bereft of anything except for gauges, rocker switches, a stabilizing crossbar where the back seat would be, and two lightweight bucket seats. As with all concepts, expect to see this beauty in showrooms… never.

On the exterior, the car sees a matte black paint job, bright red brake calipers and a set of 21″ rims. The interior matches the outside with carbon fibre elements, black leather and red trim – a bit much to be honest. The guts were treated to an exhaust system upgrade, bumping the HP from 510 to 560 at 6500 rpm. Super aggressive. James Bond, Batman, or neither?
