Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro

This thing is insane! fitted with a 2.5l turbocharged engine producing around 500hp, all wheel drive drivetrain, carbon fibre everywhere to bring it in at 1,390kg, which equals a 0-100 time of 3.7 seconds in a car thats the size of a shopping trolley! madness! but i like it!
this is basically the entire organs on an Audi TT RS transplanted into a regular A1 with widened fenders and new bumpers with the addition of a race inspired interior. Gotta love the 19inch turbine look wheels with wide sticky 255/30 rubber on them.

Hello to the World and Welcome to my Blog: The Enthusiast

My name is Alex Wilmot and my background with cars was written in stone back in 1994 (i was 4 at the time) at my Fathers first ever motor race in a Lotus 7 replica. Since then I have always had cars around me, having a garage of my Father's customers cars lined up waiting to be unleashed on the weekends at Zwartkops, Kyalami, Midvaal, just to name a few, Growing up as a kid seeing all these races going on and the mechanical work my Father put in has made me an Enthusiast, I'm not too much a hands on build my engine guy but i understand most things about cars. This Blog is a story of cars that i feel should be announced to the world through Events coverage, Car reviews, Stories, Photos and whatever else I feel should be posted. A dear friend of mine will also have some of his articles posted here as he is as enthusiastic as I am, so we'll see some posts from him aswell as stories from around the world from others that have caught my attention.
So here we are, awaiting to get started.
See you soon with a story
