Audi has revealed the concept for a 600bhp TT, the clubsport turbo.

It is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine with two electric turbochargers.

The result is a whopping 600 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, driving all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. Weighing in at 3,078 pounds and with those electric turbos spooling up quick, it's said to reach 62 in 3.6 seconds en route to a top speed of over 192 miles per hour. 

Audi calls it the “most extreme TT to-date” reminiscent of the thoroughbred Audi 90 IMSA GTO race car of the late 1980s,

It is being shown at Austria's annual meeting for Volkswagen Group enthusiasts, at Wörthsee.

"The electric biturbo signifies a new dimension in driving enjoyment; it boosts sprinting ability and torque and enables high peak power,"  said Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi board member for technical development. 

"In our TDI engines, we are close to production readiness with this technology.

“We are now presenting it in a TFSI - here too, we are the first automaker in the world to do this. For our fans at Wörthersee, we have packaged the electric biturbo in a very sporty show car."
