Audi TT clubsport quattro: updates

Audi has revealed an updated version of the TT clubsport quattro showcar revealed back in May 2007. It features a 300 hp turbocharged engine and is closer to a limited series production. It will debut at the Wörthersee Tour, Austria.


Like the original TT clubsport quattro concept in 2007, this new edition will have its official debut the Wörthersee Tour, a meeting for Audi and VW enthusiasts in Reifnitz, Austria, from May 21 to 25.

From the official press release:

Design

The low windshield is extremely flat. The A-pillars are nearly invisible, making the continuous window strip appear to be a
single casting. Instead of the compartment for the soft top there are two humps
behind the passenger compartment – the lines of the showcar painted in Suzuka
Gray
, pearl effect are intensely evocative of a speedster.

Mounted in front of the
humps are two massive rollover bars, which together with the strong A-pillars protect
the driver and passenger if the car should roll over.

Audi TT clubsport quattroThe front end is dominated by the powerful single-frame grill painted in high-gloss
black. Beneath the headlamps, which feature a strip of LED daytime running lights,
are large air inlets covered by horizontally split black grills.

A distinctive spoiler lip optimizes downforce. When viewed from the side, the sharp
contours in the sill area are every bit as striking as the boldly accentuated wheel
wells, which house polished 9×19 inch wheels shod with 255/35 tires.

The track was widened by 66 millimeters (2.60 inches) versus the production TT.

The
rear bumper is designed as a diffuser. The fascia between the two large tailpipes of
the stainless steel exhaust system emphasizes the horizontal lines and makes the
car look even wider from behind.

Interior

Audi TT clubsport quattro - InteriorThe purist style of the exterior carries over to the interior of the Audi TT clubsport
quattro. The newly designed sill area emphasizes the width of the vehicle. The driver
and passenger sit in racing bucket seats that offer excellent support even in extreme
driving situations – on the race track, for example

Typical for Audi is the generous use of aluminum in the interior of the showcar. The
clubsport quattro sports a high-grip version of the flat-bottomed steering wheel from
the production TT with aluminum shift paddles.

The door pull handle and door opener
are also made of aluminum, and their cut-out appearance emphasizes the lightweight
design character of the concept car. The pedals are also in aluminum.

The second distinctive feature of the interior of the TT clubsport quattro is the color
orange. Leather in this color provides bright highlights to the arm rests, the sides of
the center tunnel, the backs of the bucket seats and the instrument cowl. The orange
and white graphics of the instrument cluster clearly distinguishes it from its
counterpart in the production model.

Technical Features

Audi TT clubsport quattroThe uprated 2.0 TFSI turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine delivers more than 300 hp coupled with a newly designed exhaust system, dual clutch S tronic transmission and quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.

The driver can change gears manually using
the shift lever or the paddles on the steering wheel, or can choose a fully automatic
mode.

The brake system features
ventilated discs measure 340 millimeters (13.39 inches) at the front and 310 millimeters
(12.20 inches) at the rear.
