EA has announced that Need for Speed World, its Play4Free online PC racers, now has over five million registered users.

In a celebration of sorts, the firm has announced that from today until June 4, players can test drive a new, free rental-car in game which is none other than the Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro. The car was just unveiled at the annual Worthersee tour in Austria.

The Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro six-speed contains a five-cylinder unit displacing 2.5 liters with turbocharging and direct fuel injection, with an output of 503 hp and 486.79 lb-ft of torque.

It weighs 3,064 pounds and can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h takes just 10.9 seconds, while the car goes from 80 to 120 km/h in fourth gear in just 2.4 seconds – with the top speed reaching 250 km/h.

Should definitely help you out run the coppers in-game.
