In addition to this, it also features air braking, which is activated at high speed braking. When brakes are applied at high speed, the rear part of the boot raises almost vertically from its standard position in the blink of an eye, thereby improving braking distance by 12 meters, when full brakes are applied at 250 kmph.

“The Audi A3 clubsport quattro concept shows our car and tuning fans at the Wörthersee just how much sporty potential there is in the A3 family and in our top of the line engines such as the 2.5 TFSI. We have pushed the limits in every respect with this show car: power, dynamics, sound, design,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development.
