Audi TT quattro sport concept with 414bhp debuts in Geneva

In addition to introducing the third-generation TT at the Geneva Motor show, Audi is also showing a very powerful TT quattro sport concept on the show floor.

Besides exterior updates like diamond-pattern front grille, matrix LED headlights, bigger air intakes, carbon fibre extended wheel arches, carbon fibre rear diffuser, big rear wing, large circular tailpipes and unique 20-inch alloy wheels, the real difference is under the bonnet when compared to the standard production model.

“With our Audi TT quattro sport concept show car, we wanted to demonstrate what the new TT’s technology can do if you take it a step further,” explains Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development. “This car is designed for racing – an extreme driving machine for the motorsports enthusiasts among our customers.”

Power comes from an uprated 4-cylinder 2.0-litre TFSI engine producing an impressive 414bhp (420 PS) and 331 lb-ft of torque, linked to a quick S tronic dual gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive.

The engine weighs 150kg and offers 207bhp per litre. That’s more than in any other production engine with this displacement. For comparison the 2.0-litre AMG turbo in the A 45 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG packs 355bhp.

The Audi quattro sport concept features a stripped interior to save weight, having no speakers and armrest. The standard seats are replaced with bucket seats with four-point seat belts.

Kerb weight is 1,344kg and 0-62mph takes just 3.7 seconds.

Audi has not confirmed the production model yet, but some sources already claim it will make production in low volumes. We have no problem with that and are looking forward to seeing it in production.
