The Audi TT ultra quattro concept has shed an incredible 300kg compared to its closest series production equivalent
The TT ultra quattro concept is to be shown at the Worthersee festival. With 310PS, 400Nm between 1,900rpm and 5,000rpm and weight reduction to 1,111kg weight the ultra quattro yields 279PS per ton with a 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds, 173mph top speed.
Extensive use of Carbon Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (CFRP), Fibreglass-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) and magnesium reduces bodyshell weight by 100kg.
There are no compromises on equipment behind the headline-grabbing figures – air conditioning, electric window controls and an electromechanical parking brake are all included, and there are even innovations such as compact cameras in the doors which replace the exterior mirrors and transfer images directly into the digital cockpit.
