Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept revealed

Recently Audi has revealed its latest concept car named 'Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept', so far only a concept car and there is no information when it will be mass produced, as reported by Slashgear on May 8, 2015.

Ingolstadt-based car manufacturers was release a video of Audi TT Clubsport concept at the car's premiere in Worthersee 2015. In the video shown the Audi TT Clubsport turbo concept comes with gray color scheme being ridden on asphalt and claimed has an output power of 600 hp.

This car rely on a 2.5L 5-cylinder biturbo engine that produces soft sound. Normally, turbochargers are powered by exhaust gases from the engine itself. That can deliver a potent thrust once the powertrain has spooled up to a certain point, but below that threshold there's a wait for the peak power to kick in.

The TT clubsport turbo's electric compressor fills that wait. Powered by a dedicated 48‑volt electrical sub-system using a li-ion battery in the trunk, it spins up almost instantaneously when the driver stamps on the gas pedal.

As a result, Audi has been able to tune the regular turbocharger more to the engine speeds it's most effective at, and so altogether you get almost 480 lb-ft of torque across 3,000 to 7,000 rpm. The purpose of the use of e-turbo to boost power at low rpm without the traditional turbo lag. When using normal turbo, can gush the speed of 0-60 mph in just 3 seconds.
Technically, the TT clubsport turbo is a concept, designed to show off the potential of the e-turbo. Practically, though, Audi says it's "technology close to production readiness," which does leave us hopeful that there could be a niche for a very extreme TT in the line-up sometime soon.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SLASHGEAR]
