* Exceptionally successful A3 is reinterpreted as a for the first time

* Powered by five-cylinder Turbo FSI engine 408PS and 500Nm, linked to S tronic twin clutch

* 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds, governed top speed, 31mpg combined, CO2,

A new on the Audi A3 is hatched this at the 2011 Geneva Motor where for the first time in its the ultra-successful premium compact car not adopts a striking ‘notchback’ body shell, but also combines it with a power of over 400PS for epic Known simply as the A3 concept, the ever factory-produced A3 is the latest in a line of one-off Audi studies, and is characteristically laden technological advances in everything construction to infotainment.

Apart the tautly contoured new body the most immediately obvious of the A3 concept is its five-cylinder Turbo FSI engine, whose 408PS outnumbers its closest series relative, the potent RS 3 Sportback, by Peak torque of 500Nm is 50Nm up, and is available over a rev range between 1,600 and rpm, making an explosive 0-62mph time a reality. Top is electronically limited to 155mph.

Fuel economy in this Audi study looks all the impressive when these figures are taken into with up to 31mpg possible on the cycle, giving CO2 emissions of A regulated oil pump, the intelligent thermo-management system and an energy system technologies from the modular efficiency platform all to this high efficiency. The steering also draws power because its electromechanical system requires no energy driving straight ahead.

A seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch also helps to optimize while at the same time the trademark lightning-quick gear that are especially appropriate

Weight-conscious design

At 4,440mm 1,840mm wide and just high, the A3 concept has a dynamic that suggests great It can deliver on this promise to the use of ultra-modern components, design and joining techniques. These the use of custom-tailored blanks in the floor carbon fibre-reinforced plastic in varying proportions for the grille front air intake, door elements, rear apron and the 20-inch alloy wheels, and for the bonnet, doors and tailgate.

weight-saving elements help to the A3 concept back to a relatively 1,540kg, meaning its RS 3 Sportback-derived strut front and four-link suspension is even less through the bends. Front and tracks that at 1,572mm and are even wider than the RS 3 also help to plant the even more firmly, and of quattro permanent all-wheel via an electronically controlled multi-plate acts as the mainstay.

The Audi select dynamic handling appears for the first time in an A3, the driver five modes which to fine-tune engine power steering feel and shift points for the seven-speed S transmission. As well as the more comfort, auto, dynamic and settings, the latest iteration of the features an efficiency mode for maximum economy.

To gain to all this in the A3 concept, the driver only touch the door with its brushed aluminium It then power extends opening the door to a futuristic which, thanks to the best-in-class wheelbase, is also suitably This applies to the ‘boot’ as which offers an impressive capacity.

In of infotainment, the Audi A3 concept emphasizes why the brand is one of the leaders in field. A UMTS model full access to the Internet, the car to access services from and thanks to the WLAN hotspot, can surf and send e-mail their own computers.
