Ultra-light weight construction and maximum driving pleasure – these are the two characteristics that describe best the latest German sports car Audi TT ultra quattro Concept.
The premiere of the concept was during the annual event in Wörthersee, Germany. The car was displayed together with a vintage Sport quattro S1, the Audi RS models and Audi R18 e-tron quattro.
The Audi TT ultra quattro concept features 1,111 kilograms (2,449.34 lb) total weight. It is powered by a 2.0 TFSI engine delivering 228 kW (310 hp) and 400 Nm of torque. The car offers an impressive performance due to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive, and six speed transmission.
The TT ultra quattro concept accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds. It is 1.3 seconds faster than current models. The top speed is 280 km/h (174 mph).
The Audi engineers fitted the sports car with a redesigned brand Space Frame (ASF). Thanks to that, the TT ultra quattro Concept is 43 kilograms (94.80 lb) lighter compared to the current TT generation models. In total, the latest Audi concept is 300 kilograms (661.39 lb) lighter than the comparable production cars.
The car features an extensive use of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) in the rear wing, the center tunnel, in the B-pillars, the trunk and in the roof. The same material is used in the door trim, the center console and the cross-bracing. The cutting-edge component magnesium is used in the floor.
The shape of the Audi TT ultra quattro concept is inspired by the taste of motorsport and sportiness. The concept car is finished in the eye-catching color. Inside, the cabin is fitted with bucket seats, electric window controls and an electromechanical parking brake. The exterior mirrors are replaced by compact cameras that transfer the images directly into the digital display.
