It is amazing a car that looks so dull and boring in its normal, production guise, can be cool and attractive once you put a racing outfit on it. We are, of course, talking about the Audi TT Cup. It looks as exciting as the standard TT is bland.
Shown here in these showroom photos at Audi Neckarsulm, the 2015 Audi TT Cup is built for a dedicated racing series for the sports coupe, held as part of the DTM season this year. The series consists of entrants from 13 nations and three continents and six cars reserved for changing guest drivers comprising a grid of 18 slots. The final event was held this weekend at Hockenheim Ring.
Audi TT Cup is a race car gentleman drivers can enjoy competing in over the weekend, powered by a 310 horsepower engine that carries a weight of only 1,125 kilograms. The aero kit on this car can inspire tuners in making styling kits for the road going version.
The Official Partners of the Audi Sport TT Cup are Audi Original Zubehör, Audi Top Service, monthly magazine Autobild Sportscars, the premium brand for polymer-based solutions Rehau, and global chemical company LG Chem. Partners of the Audi Sportt TT Cup are Audi Consulting, Austria’s leading manufacturer of aluminum products AMAG and the high-performance sports brake pads manufacturer Pagid Racing. Tires for the series are provided by the main sponsor, Hankook.
