Besides the fact that Worthersee is a great place in the Alps with spectacular sights, it also hosts the most important Auto Show where Audi and Volkswagen brands present their cars and introduce new ones, too. Audi TT ultra quattro concept has just been reveal in the show.
The Audi TT ultra Quattro is a lightweight version of the regular TT S Quattro. Its weight only of 1,111 kg (2,449 lbs), that is 300 kg (661 lbs) less than the model it is based on. Power is provided by a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter TFSI engine that can generate 310 HP (228 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. With a power-to-weight ratio of 3.6 kg/hp, the TT ultra quattro concept goes from stand to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.2 seconds (1.3s faster than the previous TT) and it can go up to a maximum speed of 173.98 mph (280 km/h).
In order to lose kilograms, the Audi TT did not pass through a diet. It only had the luck of being manufactured by some of the most skillful teams in the car field. The guys from Audi have placed on the vehicle some R8 GT sourced bucket seats, a CFRP rear end, roof, center tunnel and B-pillars, that go together with a magnesium floor and hinge reinforcements. The car has also been equipped with a functional wing which is made from visible carbon and its base has been created as a supporting element from milled aluminum. So, Audi seems to be quite keen on the motto according to which the right amount of the right material in the right place make the difference.
