Audi TT ultra

This is Audi’s most extreme Audi TT yet. The TT Ultra Quattro is pushing the latest weight-saving technology audi have to offer. Weighting in at 1111kg, around 300kg less than the next TT RS, despite retaining the quattro all-wheel drive system. Another 100kg is shed from the TT Ultra’ body construction using carbon fibre reinforced plastic and carbon fibre body panels used on the bonnet, roof and tailgate.

The focus of this concept was weight saving technology, but in addition they have tweaked the 2.0 TFSI to output 306bhp, putting it close to the 335bhp TT RS which uses a 2.5-litre TFSI. Torque has also been improved from 258 to 295lb ft. The 2-litre TFSI’s extra performance is also gained though weight-saving tweaks to the crankcase, crankshaft, flywheel and sump, among other components, reducing overall mass by 25% . This combination of lower weight and higher outputs leads move this concept very close to Audi V8 R8 performance figures, with a 0-100kph of around 4.2sec and an estimated top speed of 278kph.

The Audi TT Ultra Quattro is still an official concept, if Audi will push this into development is anyone’s guess right now.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
