Photoset: Audi TT Ultra Quattro Concept, a TT “Light”
The TT concept was made to show the benefits of weight saving measures on a series production model. The TT Ultra Quattro concept tips the scales at 1,111 kg (2,449 lbs), with Audi’s engineers shaving 100 kilograms (220.46 lbs) from the body structure and exterior panels alone. Some examples include the use of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) in the rear end, the center tunnel, in the B-pillars and in the roof, and magnesium in the floor and as hinge reinforcement.
A slightly tuned version of the regular TT S’ 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit with an output of 306hp (310PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) or 38hp and 50Nm more, is paired to a six-speed manual and Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system.
Other improvements include a stiffer suspension setup, carbon-ceramic brake discs with fixed aluminum callipers up front, an aero package, the replacement of the exterior and interior mirrors with cameras and screens, plus a new digital instrument panel.
