Audi will premiere a special Audi TT Ultra quattro Concept at this year’s GTI Wörthersee meet, an annual event that brings VW and Audi fans together mainly the GTI fans to showcase their tuning specifics with their cars, the BBS stand is the place to check out the craziest stanced wheels during this event!
In that regard, Audi takes this opportunity to present a special version of the Audi TT treated to quattro enhancements and in the home of quattro. The car now weighs only 1111kgs, thanks to the motto ‘the right amount of the right material in the right place’ where Audi utilized carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) in the rear end, the center tunnel, in the B- pillars and in the roof and Magnesium components in the floor and as hinge reinforcement to maintain a low weight.
Its 2.0 TFSI engine develops 228 kW (310 hp) and 400 Nm of torque available between 1900-5000 rpm and will do a naught to 100km/h in just 4.2 seconds (which is 1.3s faster that the base TT) before the needles rests on the far end at 280km/h.
The car features large with the base of the rear wing being manufactured from milled aluminum, the wing is made of visible carbon. The car is painted in a crystal white with CFRP added on the hood, roof, sides and the trunk. CFRP is also utilized in the interior on the door trim. Drivers will enjoy bucket seats taken from an Audi R8 GT while his side mirrors are replaced by digital cameras that transmit images to his digital cockpit.
With the chassis being made of fiberglass reinforced carbon, the front brakes comes with ceramic discs with an aluminum fixed caliper while the exhaust system is made of titanium ends in a single central tailpipe. The spokes on the CRFP wheels are also made of high-strength aluminum. The weight is further balanced properly through the placement of the lithium-ion starter battery in the interior under the driver’s seat.
