The Audi TT Quattro sport concept show car
Ingolstadt/Geneva, March 9, 2014 – Audi presented a truly special show car at the Geneva Motor Show. The Audi TT Quattro sport concept embodies the dynamic potential of the new Audi TT in its purest form. Its two-liter TFSI supplies 420 hp
The engine in the Audi TT Quattro sport concept makes a powerful statement. The 2.0 TFSI has a power output of 420 hp at 6,700 rpm – a new benchmark in the two-liter category. Its specific output is 210 hp per liter of displacement – that’s more than even 2001’s victorious Le Mans R18 racing car, which was the first time Audi combined turbocharging with FSI direct gasoline injection. The four-cylinder engine has 450 Nm of torque available in the engine speed range from 2,400 to 6,300 rpm. with over 300 Nm already available at only 1,900 revs.
With its cutting-edge chassis – McPherson wheel suspension with aluminum components at the front and a four-link layout at the rear – the Audi TT Quattro sport concept offers sharp, precise race car handling. The stiff setup brings the body closer to the road when compared with the series-production TT. 54 percent of the weight rests on the front axle, 46 percent on the rear. ESC electronic stabilization control, which can be partially or fully deactivated, complements the suspension’s sporty character.
The flat Matrix LED headlights and the broad Single frame grill dominate the study’s front end. The grill’s striking frame displays the Quattro logo and holds the dark diamond-pattern grill.
The show car interior has been reduced to the essentials, doing away with numerous components that are dispensable on the race circuit.
