Following the debut of the new generation Audi TT at the Geneva Motor Show, the German auto maker also revealed a Sport Concept version of the car, probably as a preview of what the next TT-RS will be like. Audi TT Quattro Sport is basically a normal TT on steroid, but it sets new benchmarks in terms of performance.
The engine in this car is the same 2.0 liter TFSI unit you get in the TTS with 300 horsepower. In the TT Quattro Sport though, it makes 420 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque – new records for a 2.0 liter engine. With this kind of power, the 1,344 kilograms, four-wheel-drive coupe can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds.
The secret behind the power of this magnificent engine is a host of advanced technologies employed in it, including Audi valvelift system (AVS) variable valve timing, dual camshaft adjustment, and dual injection system (FSI plus MPI), as well as special aluminum pistons with integrated cooling channels and an ultra-high-strength forged steel crankshaft.
In order to contain the fury of the world’s most powerful production 2.0 liter engine, the Audi TT Quattro Sport is fitted with a special traction control, wheel-selective torque control, and a massive body kit consisting of carbon fiber splitter and diffuser, rear wing, wider sills and wider fender to accommodate the 20-inch wheels.
