Audi TT ultra quattro concept revealed ahead of Wörthersee Tour 2013

Audi has unveiled the TT ultra quattro concept ahead of Wörthersee Tour 2013 in early May, combining minimal weight and maximum sportiness.

The TT ultra quattro concept gets its power from 310bhp 2.0 TFSI engine with 400 Nm of torque and weighs just 1,111kg, enabling it to reach 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 173.98 mph (280 km/h).

Compared to the current production car, the body structure is 43kg lighter and together with the detachable body parts, the result is a weight saving of 100 kilograms.

The TT ultra quattro concept uses carbon-fibre reinforced polymer in the rear end, the center tunnel, in the B-pillars and in the roof. There are also magnesium components in the floor and as hinge reinforcement.

The concept also has bucket seats from the R8 GT to the concept study, reducing weight by 22 kilograms and new CFRP wheels reduce weight by 20 kilograms. Other weight saving solutions include lithium-ion starter battery, ceramic brakes and new exhaust system.

There are no compromises done when it comes to basic amenities and we can still see air conditioning, electric window controls and an electromechanical parking brake.

Overall, the concept car is 300 kilograms lighter than the comparable series-production model.
