Audi A1 Clubsport quattro

Spoiler alert: this is never going to be commercially available.
It's brilliant though, isn't it? A ridiculous design exercise to prove that Audi's tuning arm still has a little fire in its belly, the A1 Clubsport quattro was built as a talent showcase for the annual Wörthersee festival. A fully-functional mock-up, it has a tweaked version of the turbocharged, 2.5-litre five-pot from the RS3 and TT RS, offering a rather silly 495bhp. That'd give you 0-62mph in 3.7s, 0-124mph in 10.9s and a limited top whack of 155mph. It's four-wheel drive (of course), has a proper manual gearbox, and enjoys the racer kudos of coilovers, carbon-ceramic brakes, a tailored aero package and a dirty great exhaust sticking out of the side.
No doubt they'll build you one if you write a large enough cheque...
