• Video of an insane 1074 horsepower turbocharged 2.5 liter inline-5 Audi S3 with carbon fiber widebody by TS Racing in Norway

      The Scandinavians build all kinds of insane high HP German cars and this one is no exception. TS Racing from Norway put together an S3 with a 2.5 inline-5 featuring a huge turbo that puts out 1074 horsepoewr and 854 pound-feet of torque. This power is fed through a sequential gearbox as the car is built for road course duty. It also retains the all wheel drive system in order to put this amount of power to the ground.


      The engine work is not all as the car features a custom carbon fiber widebody dropping weight to about the ~2500 pound range. Combine that weight with this power and you have an insane Audi S3 designed to annihilate whatever it runs into on the track. Check out the video below.

        So is this build just for fun or is there actually a competition where this car can enter in with that much hp?

        I'm sure it can race in some unrestricted classes but I think it is mostly to show off and be badass.

        Thats $#@!ing nuts!!! It sounds pretty sick too. The TT-RS engine looks more and more attractive for making power. Crazy to think that some of the newer BMW engines have been out longer and have not even gotten to those levels of power with less liters and cylinders - ridiculous!!!

        I don't think this is a TT-RS engine.

        I thought the TT RS used a 2.5 liter 5 cyl? Maybe I'm wrong.

        It does this just isn't the TT-RS motor it's based on an older Audi inline-5.

        You are correct. Where is the other runner? Maybe the article has the wrong info.
