In the engine are created two circles for cooling of the luboil and water, which is giving high efficiency and productivity of the engine. The car Audi A1 1.2 TFSI is having low fuel consumption – only 5.1 liters per 100 km and maximum torque of 160 Nm at 1,500 rpm. The good and quality engine is quite small, but giving enough power for the car to have good acceleration and maximum speed. The dynamic of the car is good, because of the low weight and size.

The Audi cars are usually giving high comfort for the drivers and passengers and all the models are having hi-technology in the interior. But the large cars are giving comfort while driving on long distances and they are absolutely not proper for driving in the city.

For the small cars class, it is taking leading position till the date of releasing, but definitely something is missing for this small car. We all love high power cars and Audi A1 is perfect for making such version. Specially for the exhibition Worthersee Tour from Audi created A1 Clubsport Quattro. The car is improved version of Audi A1 and having good technical parameters. Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro is a prototype, which is showing the developments of Audi in technology, mechanics, design and dynamic. The most interesting in the compact car is the 2.5-liter engine, which is having 5-cylinders. The engine was taken from Audi TT RS and Audi RS3, which already used this engine. Of course Audi showed their own development over this engine and increased the power from the standard 340 hp to the incredible 503 hp. This power is really much for a small car like Audi A1.
