that looks like a standard A3 Sportback. Maybe the FSI Turbo version. Slightly off topic, the pricing for the new Golf has been released, I'm not a huge fan... but there's a 10 grand diference between that and the equi audi ones. Hence the GTi, which has the same 2L FSI turbo would be about 10 grand cheaper than the Sportback 2.0L turbo... mmmm.....

Ummm.... did you guys read the text or look closely at the photos?

That particular car is apparently an Audi development hack (recognise the courtyard of the Ingolstadt facility?) and is purported to have a 3.2 V6 biturbo under the bonnet..... check out the size of the front brakes (a tight squeeze in the 18" rims) and of course the exhaust....
