Audi TT Coupe Performance

As a lot of the specialists from German company Audi saw a lot of potential for a high-performance TT Coupe model, the Quattro GmbH division did as well. Several of the engineers have decided to transform the sensitive TT into a true sports car. You might be wondering on how they did it. Well, the specialists have offered a 2.7-liter V engine borrowed from Audi RS4 Avant, which is part of the B5 generation. The problem with all this was that the engine they thought about did not fit in a transverse position as needed by the TT. Because of this inconvenient, the specialists have decided to use the entire platform, transmission, rear differential, axles, braking system and the wheel assemblies.

The imagination of the engineers has been tested and retested and this is when they came up with the idea of shortening the platform by 170 mm. In terms of interior, changes are not really obvious in comparison to standard TT models. Here we have to mention that there are several exceptions, like the Recaro seats and the Alcantara steering wheel. The ones in charge of building the car needed eight months to complete the work and it was then tested for 20.000 km. This was really challenging even for the Porsche 911. The engine offered was capable of generating 380 PS and 440 Nm of torque. This output enabled the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and to reach a top speed f 295 km/h. There have been some unknown reasons and this is why the model did not make it to production. More details on the new idea and so, the new model will be available soon.
